I "let" my wife buy another ring, sticker price $630. I then go to Wally World and she "lets" me get 10 boxes of WWB (100 ct) 9mm. I only had to promise it would last all summer:rolleyes:

You should get at least 60 Boxes or another gun for it to be fair. Or maybe 10 boxes and another gun. No way 10 boxes is going to last all summer.:neener:

Is there a new 9mm to match the 10 boxes?

I'm with MJRW - you need to get a "matching" 9mm pistol to make things fair. Diamonds lasts forever, your ammo won't :D

no , try about 10 cases to be fair or actually about 5 cases (5000rds)

Dudes, you guys _really_ need to reload.

Simple! The diamond is supposed to last forever...therefore you get the equivalent: a forever supply of ammo!

1000 rounds is supposed to last the WHOLE SUMMER!!!!! :D :D

My gosh, that is a couple good afternoons! Or maybe a few practice sessions and then a big match.

Bogie is right, you guys really need to reload.

1000 rounds.

That could be ten 1-box days at the range -- roughly 2 months' worth of once a week, practice only/no play trips to the range.

It could also be one two-day class, plus one follow-up afternoon which includes some play.

Or it could be one really cool weekend with a couple buddies.

How long is she planning to wear that ring?

You are so whipped!:neener:

If you have to ask us if it's a fair deal, then you already know it isn't. Go "let" yourself buy a new gun, sticker price $630.:evil:

SUCKER!!!!!!!!!!! :D

A real man would shoot all the ammo and then hock her ring for more ammo!!!!

But then a happily married man won't entertain such silly notions in his head except on some internet forum. Or lets say one that wants to remain married. Alas I too make such concessions with the wife.

Oh and the real bummer...when I sell a rifle she wants half the proceeds!

Good Shooting

A new gun would make it fair.

You sound like you need to start loading your own.
