    Lets say you just got handed 700.00, you didnt expect it and you dont need it for some thing else. AND your wife doesnt know about it... what gun(s) do you buy?

    Option A: M1 Carbine
    Option B: Enfield MK4 NO1 AND M44
    Option C: ??

    First it would depend it it was my turn or her turn. If it was her turn, the I hand the money to her. If it's my turn I buy whatever I find that suits me at the time.

    Aw C'mon... You don't have to tell her, and God knows my wife wouldn't notice if I added 5 new guns to my collection, but you should do something nice for her... You know you want to :) If you did something really nice, she probably wouldn't complain about the new gun if you told her...

    I'm thinking dinner out, a nice date, taking her to her favorite place and giving her at least a chunk of your windfall. My wife would split it with me, and I'd do the same for her, but maybe I got an exceptionally good wife ;)

    Who you trying to kid, she's going to find out!

    The truth came out when my wife received her CCW and added all my pistols.

    My wife stated that she would like a Jericho 941. And if I wanted to pitch in something fully auto would be on her list.

    As we know, my money is her money, and her money is her money.

    I'd go for like 5 and 1/2 Hi-Point 9 mm's. You can duel wield, AND in case of a gunfight, just throw them down once they run out of ammo, like in the movies.

    I'd tell my wife we had an extra 700 bucks I'd like to buy a gun with,...and she'd take me to the LGS and help me pick one out. God I love this woman!!

    gb0399 asked:

    Well, I actually experienced just about that exact situation. After waiting for the better part of 2 months (together) we cashed the check. She got 50% and I got 50%. I still asked if she minded if I bought myself a Winchester Super Grade. She didn't mind.

    Somethings are just more important than rifles. Marital trust is one of them. I've been married to my wife for a bit over 25 years now. We've had some ups, and some downs. But the trust is what has carried us through.

    Right now I'd probably go for a new scope for my .223. From the two that you listed, i'd probably go for a Lee-Enfield.

    She is going to find out!

    a few thoughts strike me.

    1- A CMP SG Garand (If able to purchase from CMP).
    2- A Marlin lever action, stainless would be nice (I understand they're going to shut down, get em now).
    3 - Build an AR (if you don't have one).
    4 - A reloading setup (again, if you don't have one).
    5 - A very nice piece of glass for an existing rifle.
    6 - If you don't reload, a crap load of ammo.

    Man, It's fun spending other peoples money! I feel just like the govt. :D

    "Somethings are just more important than rifles. Marital trust is one of them."

    Yup. + a gazillion or two. If ya gotta hide such doings, either you're not so smart about money or you're hooked up with the wrong lady.

    Heck, I'm too lazy to lie. I figure that if I don't lie, I don't ever have to remember what I said.

    Sounds like a nice lever action is in order.

    So true. Some of my best memories of life here at THR are when my wife and daughter come over and ask me why I'm typing up a storm.

    My bride knows well, and I remind her that, if she wants to track my posts, all she has to do is sign up for THR! I hope some day she does. :)

    Hiding things from the wife is REALLY bad ju-ju. Let her know, give her some of it (assuming bills aren't pressing) and spend it on something you want. If not enough for that, put it in your safe and wait until you have enough. Playing games like that (unless $$$$$ is never an issue) leads to too many marital issuies

    Very nice! I'd go with French maid tonight and Nurse the following evening :)

    Otherwise to answer your question go with option B and some ammo or get a CMMG bargan bin AR-15!
