    Had a friend who complains about his wife buying all the "unnecessary" shoes, purses, and what have you. The other day the wife was telling me about him buying all the guns when one for home defense would be all that's needed. :D

    Ok. I had my wife read this. Just for the "Correct" answer...after she gave me the "take a flying leap" look. Here the answer:

    "I have never spent $450 on a pair of shoes, nor will I ever. With all the money that you spend on ammo, you could buy a pair of shoes at Payless shoes, and still have money left over. Look at all you accessories- ammo bags, grips, holsters. Women still come out ahead. Our shoes last a long longer than your accessories and ammo".

    There it. The Gospel according to Mrs. Ex-MA Hole.

    Ok you fellow non-believers, help!!!

    The real question is what do we have more fun with? The guns/ammo/accessories/ or the shoes? :p

    There was a woman reporter in Afghanistan who asked a man why he had so many guns. He thought a moment then said ,you women have jewelry, we men have guns, that's just the way things are !!

    Point out to Mrs. Ex-MA Hole that many women, although perhaps not her, drop hundreds of dollars on clothes in a single shopping trip. Then point out that those clothes will not potentially save their lives, nor do they retain their value the way a gun does.

    Ex-MA Hole - Ask her to try to sell her shoes, or trade them in on a new pair...or how much value of her shoes will retain and/or increase over a decade or two.

    I haven't a clue how many shoes/purses wifey has, though it's an impressive number.

    She has no idea how many firearms I have, but knows it's a goodly amount.

    If she wants to add to her collection and has the bucks, she does.

    Same for me.

    We exist in perfect harmony. :cool:

    Life is short, and it's not like we can take it with us.

    Tamara Marcos? (For those of you too young to remember, Imelda Marcos, wife of Phillipines thug dictator Ferdinand Marcos, had, like, a zillion pairs of shoes. A psychological thing, possibly.)

    Let's see. One pair of shoes (shiny black leather boots, actually) for church, job interviews, and such. One pair of boots for deep snow. And one for everything else. That's all I need or want.

    Guns now. . .hmmm. Let's say, I could easily arm everyone at work, with stuff left over. And one of the stores I haunt is having a Makarov blowout this weekend. . . .

    If you were to spend less time in shoe stores and more in gun shops you could get that ratio up to 12:1 in no time, I'm sure.

    Standing Wolf as usual, cut to the quick of the matter.

    Makes no difference if one is like Tamara or someone who only owns one firearm. Stay out of shoe stores. :D

    Someone give me a call when they open a "Payless Gun store" "You could pay more, but why?"

    When shoes are outlawed, only outlaws will have soles

    Oh, I disagree. Every woman knows: High Heels=Pump Action!

    I showed her the new posts, she wasn't amused (she is pregnant and VERY hormonal).

    I brought up the saftey issue. She told me that she could save a life with a shoe. I laughed and asked how.

    "Didn't you ever see Get Smart?"

    :confused:

    I think that means that the conversation is over.

    I think we win. When I tried to pursue the issue later, she simply stated "Whatever".

    VICTORY IS OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. The gun show is in Concord this weekend...hmmm....If I come home with a pair of hunting boots for her, I should be able to get another toy, no? ;)

    Never enjoyed buying shoes until it became a tactical endeavor
