    My ex came over yesterday afternoon to see the dogs and discovered that I had changed the locks. (It was my attorney's advice.) After all, she had stolen my gun collection. She said some really filthy things, and then threatened me.
    She carries a .38 special snub and I expeced it to come out any second. In that split second, I decided that I would just take the bullet if she pulled out the snub. I would never point a gun at her.

    I've had my war.

    I don't know if I'd just "take a bullet." She might be accurate...

    Have you considered installing a video camera for those moments when she comes over? I'd run the show by a judge and request a a restraining order. I certainly wouldn't want someone packing a gun coming to visit that has a habit of getting nasty. What's to stop her from behaving like this with the rest of the family?

    If I was you I would look into getting a restraining order against her. If you don't sooner or later she will cause you more trouble, either legally or physically.

    Laura (That's the right name, isn't it?)

    My ex is a very accuate shot with a pistol or rifle. She's a "natural shot".
    I watched her put all five shots into an area the size of a man's fist at 75 feet. Yes--seventy five feet. And that was on her first trip to the range. No practice, no nothing.
    I've been shot before and it was..ah, unplesant. However, this woman lived happily with me for 26 years. It was a few months ago when she had "female" surgery that she turned into...this. My doctor said it was a "hormonal thing".
    No matter what, I could't shoot her.

    Pop- Yeah, you're right. I'm calling my attorney first thing tomorrow morning and asking him about an EOP. Doesn't help me today though.

    Wow, sounds like you're in a pickle! Those "female surgeries" can change a woman. Has she tried medication to counter the imbalance? It's sad to see a marrage fall apart because of an operation.

    I hate restraining orders, but it sounds like you need one. Changing the lock was a good idea. If everything is secure, make yourself scarce to avoid confrontations until this blows over. Be careful mentioning guns around the police and lawyers, that always takes the conflict up a level or two. Remember, restraining orders and guns don't mix, you or your wife will lose them. Make sure she knows if she pulls one out it's jail time, even if it's just for show to gain leverage.

    Sounds to me like you might consider playing the woman's card and express your concern about her means and ability to use her (your) guns against you. At the very least they may be removed from her until the difficulty is over with.

    On another note, I feel your pain bud. I too have been on the short end of the "hormonal problem" stick. It's not pretty and it's not easy. It may even get worse, but there's light at the end of the tunnel for ya. Hang in there!

    Del4: Her doctor gave her some hormone replacement patches. She'd put one on and be a different person two hours later. Far worse behavior than without a patch.

    K8ysv: Thanks for the support.

    Navajo: Well, you may be right but the thought of shooting her makes my stomach roll.

    Again, I've had my war. Three tours worth.

    Perhaps some hollow points filled with estrogen?

    Friends,
    I laid in bed last and listened to the phone ring. My "call waiting" said it was her. I didn't answer. Finally, I got up and turned off the ringers. I could STILL hear the upatairs phone. I put in an earplug. (I only need one because I'm completely deaf on the right side.) It takes a very crazy person to forgo sleep just to ring your phone all night long.

    Blues: Thank you for the joke. You could be right. However, I have a very difficult time laughing when my life is in danger.

    Yesterdaysyouth: You could be right too.
    A friend told me yesterday that he wants to divorce his wife (She's "running around" on him) and move to Florida and open a new gunshop. He asked me if I would be interested in being his partner. Naturally, I said "YES".

    If she's mentally unstable, her CCW needs to be yanked before she loses it completely and shoots either you or some guy in a parking lot that pissed her off.

    I'd get the restraining order and if she violates it, have her arrested.

    Plenty of women in my family had operations but as my mother was an RN for many years -- I know of none that change a person this drastically, except that she must have been unbalanced for many years. If you don't mind taking a bullet -- just consider, would you mind if you took a bullet in front of your children or grand kids? What a memory they'll have....:eek:

    It's admirable that you wouldn't want to hurt her but if she's willing to hurt you, you have a responsibity to yourself and your loved ones to protect yourself. If she's sick, she's all the more dangerous. Some of the worst domestic crimes by women have occured because people noticed they weren't quite right and did nothing. Bad move. I'd take your friend up on his offer to open up shop in Flordia -- say nothing except to those that won't blab to her and get a restraining order in the meantime to keep her at bay. God help you if she moves to Florida to be near you. Someone acts like this...stalking isn't out of the question.

    Won't a restraining order void her CCW to begin with?

    Glocksman: I hate to do it, but I think I've got to.
    I have a Bonanza on stand-by. If worse comes to worse, I can fly from Louisville to Nashville in 43 minutes or get to Florida in 5 hours. I have friends who'll hide and protect me in both places. I really wanted my collection back before "The Great Escape".
    Sheesh, I just had to take a pain pill. When I'm worried, my back and hip just KILL me. I have canes stashed around EVERYWHERE. It formally was pistols, before she stole them all. The only guns I have left are the Kahr PM9 on my hip, a Colt .22 that my father gave me about a hundred years ago when I was 17, and a Marlin Papoose that was in my flight bag. See, if I'm forced down again, I want a rifle. (Even if it's just a .22) I'm not spending another long cold night with nothing but a Swiss Army Knife!


    Sigh,
    Will

    Like that would really stop her from carrying? No permit? Doubt it...

    You know Kentucky, what worries me is that I don't think your law officers are taking this seriously just because of your gender. It's times like these, I'd advise a person to move to Quincy, Massachusetts -- they're dead serious about restraining orders and protecting those at risk -- men and women. It's too bad more cities and states aren't as strict. Obviously, Massachusetts isn't an option I'm sure you'd want to take so I'd advise you to move to Florida as soon as possible. It sounds like you're in a lot of danger where you're not even being protected by police.

    Laura: We don't have children and the only people that love me are friends. Mostly people on this very board. And I understand what you mean regarding my "gender". I'm 6'3" and weigh in at 220 pounds. To look at me, you wouldn't think I'd be afraid of anything. (Except, ticks. ~shudder~ The last time I got a tick on me, I ran about a mile attempting to flick him off. Finally, the guy who caught & tackled me yanked the nasty thing off. Shudder again.) Took me a half hour to find my rifle.

    Armoredman: Yeah. I've thought about that too. I'll never forget how I felt when I heard the news over my car radio that my best friend had been murdered on the way to Florida. Happened in front of his wife, too. They had been married for less than a year.

    Well, I wasn't trying to imply that it would stop her, I was really just asking about the technicalities of it.

    KR, get that restraining order. Though, they don't do much, at least you are letting the law know that you are in fear of your life. If someone, ex, current, loved one or none of above pointed a loaded weapon at me, I wouldn't think twice about pulling the trigger.

    This needs to be nipped in the bud and quick. There is no reason for you to fear for you life. Surgery or not, this chick needs some serious help.

    Come to TN, pleanty of THR's would love to put you up.

    Keep us all up to date, and good luck man.

    I'm sure if they're was a restraining order put out on her it would prohibit her from carrying. I recall some cops had a similar problem when the wife had a restraining order on them and they had surrender their home guns and couldn't take their police issue gun with them. For civilians, not sure how this would be enforced and I wouldn't put much faith in it.

    Kentucky, if you have no immediate family there to worry about, move -- and say nothing. Once you get to Florida, I'd visit your local police with a photo of her and fill them in. Mention what a wonderful shot she was to get their attention. God willing, they'll take the threat more seriously than your police do. By means, get a video camera and keep it on. If the locals don't care about her behavior captured on video, the Florida PD will be very interested in it.

    Not meaning to make this sound Hopeless KR, but this may be useful,
    A guy my dad knew had a similar problem to yours.

    from what my dad once told me, the guy's ex behaved similar to yours, and when he changed the locks after neighbors saw her repeatedly entering his home while he was at work, she went ballistic like your ex on discovery that he changed the locks, however didn't stop there, she put a price on his speedy departure from this world, on obtaining proof of this he took it to several law enforcement groups, all of whom didn't want to know, in the end the guy ended up having to move states & completely change his identity.

    If she's that nuts, Personaly I think you should do a Hudini KR.
