Just picked up a Wilson Classic Stainless today while the wife was at work (wife had no idea, that way she couldn't tell me no). After she got home I showed it to her with great pride. The only problem is she just doesn't understand my obsession for a quality gun. Now she likes to shoot at times, but she really can't tell the difference between a $400 Ruger or a Wilson costing about two grand. Trying to explain it to her is as meaningless as talking to the wind (I had her handle it and dry fire it to "feel the trigger", but to her, it's no big deal). I do admire my wifes ability to put up with my gun hobbie, but she just doesn't "get" spending this money on a gun. According to her, I could spend 1/4 the price and get a decent gun (and I can't argue because I've done it, but decent isn't what I'm looking for. Perfection is more like it). I'm sure many of you other guys are like myself and wait to present your new purchase after the fact (it saves the pre-justification argument, that way you can get right to the justification argument). After presenting my new pride and joy, I treated my wife to a "special" night, where I wait on her hand and foot. I cook dinner, buy a nice wine to keep her glass full, do the dishes, etc... This works ok for now, but with each purchase it gets more difficult. Now, I'm only 26 so I can only wonder what I'll be doing 20 years from now to make her happy after I've spent our hard earned money on yet another gun I don't need (according to her). After every new purchase, I tell her I now have every gun I'll need for a good while, but somehow I always find one I overlooked. So, how do you other guys handle the "ole lady" (better not let her see that) when presenting the gun you just spent a small fortune on?
