Gun Show booty and comments


September 21, 2003, 05:17 AM
Just went to the gun show yesterday, and I only walked out with 8 boxes of 5.56 x 45 ammo for my AR. I do have self control!

But my wife left with a Walther PPK/S... is this 'cause for worry? Should I call Gun Loving Wifes Annonymous ?

Or should I just be happy that I went and got a Ruger 96/44M for $200 at the Ruger Sale to make up for my difficiency?!

Does anyone actually buy the beef jerky? $1 dollar a strip smaller than the $1 I am paying, no thanks... this show was much bigger than the fairgrounds one I have been too, but more pins, popcorn, coins, and jewelery, among other non gun related stuff. Though there were plenty of gun items I wanted, I couldn't decided which to get while I was there, so that's why I got the Ruger at the shop on the way home. That, and being up for 20 hours straight was catching up to me.

So yeah, I am blabbering, but wanted to let everyone know what a beyond the norm wife I picked up, though the first thing she said after she got the Walther was, "When are you going to get the dies to reload for it?" I think I need to show her how to reload, maybe she can enjoy it as I do too, at least, when I am not being assigned to my bench.

Hope you other Tucsonans went and found something you wanted! Saiga 7.62x39 was calling my name for $199, or the Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 for $374, too bad I only saw two Dan Wessons though.

NO! you'll get talked into bringing the cookies and making the coffee :D

Sounds like you've got a good woman there, sounds like you two have a good thing going...I admire you both. So you end up buying dies, and teaching her to reload, your bench will be neater...and you know I'd bet money she took note of what you wanted and didn't get, don't be too surprised if she surprises you further with a firearm you thought you'd have wait a bit on. Good on the both of you !

Sound like a marriage/team.

but when I do go;
I take a handtruck.

Your wife has excellent taste.

Travis and 4v50 Gary:

Yeah, she has questioned how she could marry someone who likes a Glock. :D
