    Sometimes I lie about the price but I tell my wife about every gun I get. I just can't stop talking when it comes to guns. Everyone knows when I get a new one.

    Honest, I don't hide any. Really!

    Wifey really doesn't have much interest in the numbers, as long as I keep everything locked up securely.

    On the other hand, I don't care how many purses she buys, and really don't care to know how many she has. I've bought guns for less than she blows on some purses.

    We're both pretty easy going in that respect.

    Sometimes I may delay telling the wife about a new acquisition. And I've heard of some guys telling their significant others that they've just never seen a gun that is in fact new but I don't think I know anyone that's actually hidden a gun. :scrutiny:

    Basically, what playtheaces said.

    As long as the guns are secured in the safe, she doesn't care or want to know what's in there.

    Trouble is, the safe is full and I want to get 2 more rifles and have no more room.

    Since I currently don't have a wife or girlfriend

    I don't worry about it. However Nobody but nobody has any idea how many or what type ALL of my guns are.
    Current answer to those rude enough to ask(Usually after expressing disbeleaf that I have more than 1 or 2) is more than onw less than a thousand! That gets em going I can tell you. what could you possobly do with all those guns" There outa be a law against that" "That CAN'T be legal!" and of course my favorite "When you come to kill all the people in the office call me so I don't come in that day" Lets face it I work with some pretty warped folks apprently.

    My Mom thinks I own an 870, an AR, a .22 and an SKS. She doesnt know about the 2nd SKS, the 1911, the other 5 AR15s (4 are stripped lowers, so they dont really count), the AK or FAL. My problem is, the gunsafe is full, and my mom will occasionally be inspired to clean/paint/whatever my room when I am away at college, so my hiding spots are limited.

    If you feel the need to lie to your wife, you have bigger problems than inventory, in my opinion. Time to check your hole card. If you are worried about it, maybe it's because you know she'd not agree, probably due to the money. I look at it like hidden drinking. What have you got to hide?

    My bride doesn't care what I buy, she just wants me to control things in such a way as to not drive us into bankruptcy court. Which, lacking controls, I would be able to do. I have a want list that could push us there, easily. It's endless. I could burn through 50 grand on guns in a day, if I had it to spend, and the next day I'd want another one. If you hang out much at the gun shop, the temptation is always there.

    It's called self-control.

    OTOH, some guys don't have a money issue, and they just don't worry about telling the wife, because it truly is inconsequential, in her mind. I wish I was there. That isn't a big deal.

    I don't hide what I buy from the kids, either, as they like the things, too. Maybe not as much as me, I don't really know. But I think they need to know whats in the safe, too, and how to use them, if necessary.

    Again, these are just my thoughts on the issue. I'm not pointing fingers, because I am pretty termpted all the time, too. It's not what you think, it's what you do, that's important.

    Right you are, trapshooter....

    Anyone who's lying to their spouse about something as mundane as that ought to be re-evaluating his/her priorities. Just why are you in that marriage?

    The advantage of buying Glocks, is that they all look alike and the misses doesn't know how many I really have. :neener:

    She's gonna find out about them, anyway...:D

    Besides, she expects me to buy occasionally. If I don't, she'll think I'm spending it on fast horses & faster women...:evil:

    Zero are hidden from the wife. Honesty is the best policy. In return, I suppose the only ones I don't know about are the ones that she buys me as gifts that I haven't received yet :D

    I don't hide my guns from my SO, but she and I enable a friend of ours to have a collection without his wife's knowledge. (Her aversion to any type of firearm borders on the irrational.)

    You people who are so judgmental against the others of us here who hide guns from our wives obviously have never had to deal with this problem.

    The issue isn't money -- its the fact that it is a gun.

    Divorce isn't an option over such a stupid reason, so the exact number of guns that I own is a cloudy impression to the missus.
