Have you ever had to convince your spouse....

Postby The German » Sun Dec 09, 2012 9:39 am

... well, not that you need another new toy (if you find an easy way to do that please let me know :D
But here is a link to a great video from the SAAMI organization showing how sporting ammunition behaves in a fire - it convinced my wife, that there is no problem keeping my few thousand rounds in the house.
Enjoy, but be warned that many rounds were harmed producing this video... get some paper towles in case it is getting too hard to watch...

Kinda cool but what a waste of ammo. Skip to about 12:20 for the "bonfire".

"Sometimes it is easier to ask for forgiveness, than to ask for permission..."

From my kid's perspective the above counts for gun purchases, but not the purchase of motorcycles.

My kid came home with a bright red Ducati - this did not go well.

If I want a new gun, all I have to do is buy my wife one also.
Works well for me.
As far as my Harley, my wife is actually the one who told me to buy it.
She is a keeper for sure!! :D

The moment that I need to convince or ask permission, its time to look for a new model. Been there, done that. Never again

At my house if we have the extra $$ then there's no issue with him getting a gun.

What I run into is that we have to take turns :( And I don't wanna- I want ALL the guns! :mrgreen:
