    My Title will offend the woman on this board, Sorry. So if you are a woman, its guns your husband or BF bought you.

    So is there anybody out there who is as lucky as I am?

    My wife bought me a pair of Consecutive Serial # Stainless 5.5 inch Ruger Vaqueros in .45 Colt as a WEDDING PRESENT. (Plus a couple boxes of ammo to go with them), AND then put them in a Ruger Presentation Box. (I will post a couple of pics.

    Yes I know I picked a good one.

    So any of you been good or as lucky enough to find a woman who buys 'em for you????

    My wife bought me a CZ-75 in 1986 when I was promoted to Major in the Army. I was assigned to HQ, V Corps Artillery, in Frankfurt, Germany, at the time and she bought it at the Rhein-Main AFB Rod and Gun Club. Still have it, a pre-B model with no import markings. Sent it back to Bar-Sto for a fitted barrel. It's the only time she ever bought me a gun and it's the only gun I'll never get rid of.

    None, my wife is a legal immigrant resident of WA State (green card), she does not have an Alien Firearms License issued by the WA State DOL... So she and I cannot currently purchase or posses firearms in WA State...

    The wife bought me a real pretty RWS 94 with factory scope. Shoots like a dream. I have probably put 3000 rounds through it. The girlfriend hasn't bought me anything... maybe it is because of the wife....:p



    Guns I bought the wife
    - SMLE No1MK4 (her favorite rifle)
    - Colt Python (Her favorite handgun)

    I got a MkIII 22/45 as a wedding present. I've put more than the cost of the gun in ammo through it (and that's the cheap golden bullet stuff).

    My wife got me a Keltec P3AT for my birthday. Generally speaking my purchases have been in her presence. Only exception was the Beretta 92fs that I got a month or so ago. She was irritated that I bought it after pledging to slow down on spending for guns. After she shot it I now have a hard time getting it away from her.

    Hmmm... I think I should show this thread to my wife. She has never bought me a gun although I have bought her several. I'm jealous :)

    The wife surprised me one b-day with an AMT Auto-Mag II. She had remembered a passing comment I had made weeks prior.

    My wife of (nearly) 30 years is a saint, and I'm incredibly blessed to have such a partner. That being said...

    The next gun she buys will be the first one.

    My wife bought me an FN FNP-40 and a Ruger M77/MKII in .308.

    I've bought her a couple 1911's.

    From me to him: 870 wingmaster

    From him to me: none yet. I'm too picky and too independant. I guess the Mosin might count though. He insisted on going to show to buy it, although of course I picked out which one and from which dealer. So, Mosin 91/30

    To the op: I find your title incredibly non-offensive. Most folks here are men. It's all good. :)

    The old ball and chain bought me a new Kimber TLE II for my, 25th B-day.

    I've actually stopped her from buying 3 other guns for me.

    I bought her all the parts for a NM AR15 (she got it put together) and build her NRA Hard Ball .45, but I'm kind of like a little kid, anytime she gets another one... I get another one

    All of them. (except the ones I inherited)
    Every time I buy a new gun, she doesnt pack up and leave me, so all have been gifts. In fact, she hasn't even threatened too...yet. I may have finally hit the limit for quite a while with my $900 AR purchase this week though..I dont plan to find out.:neener:

    Haven't gotten her any.I keep offering, but she just isnt really all that interested in having her own.
