Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "Hey, I'm the one with the testicles here."

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "I need to balance out the weight in my safe"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "Hey, at least it's not a mid-life crisis Harley for $20K"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "This one is more TACTICAL"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "My current gun is SO last year"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "I can't possibly accessorize with my old gun"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "This new gun would go so much better with this new holster"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "<make up name> gave me some ammunition and I don't have a gun in that caliber"

Her: "What do you need another gun for?"
You: "That's what the voices keep telling me to buy"

how about

"I fell in love!" That REALLY pissed her off.

I also said the Harley one, but I pointed out that with good care the guns will still be in about as good shape as they are now 10 years down the line.

if I bought that new Shelby Mustang that calls to me in my sleep, that car would eventully fall apart due to my love!

"I think you might like to shoot this one because: "

Victor: "it has low recoil and a nice light trigger"

317: "it's not so muzzle heavy as the Victor"

22/45: "it's a nicer trigger than the 317 and still lighter than the Victor"

USP: "it's lightweight but the dual springs mean low recoil"

Kahr: "it has a smaller grip than the USP; it'll fit your hands"

686: "it's heavy enough that the recoil is less than the Kahr"

P7M8: "it's easier to cock than the 686 but still has a light trigger"


I'm not sure if she's buying it or humoring me. :) I might have painted myself into a corner with the P7.

I didn't bother with the 642: I told her she'd hate it.

Him: But honey...at least I'm not sitting in a bar.

1) Because I feel like it
2) Because I can afford it (maybe)
3) Because it will irritate Sarah and her friends

What more do you need?

"Because I need one to keep next to the bed that is fully black so it doesn't shine and give my position away to the intruder."

"I need this one because my carry is just too big and need something lighter to carry"

"This one is for in the car, but I can't carry it because it's too big and I can't keep my carry in my car cause it's too small."

"I need this new one because I'm keeping my old one in my workshop so I don't mind if it gets scratched."

" I need this one because there is no way any of my guns would look good under a suit"

and when my girl comes home to find me putting another gun into the safe, " I went to clean them today and they all looked so lonely, so I went to the store and got them a friend."

How many

A bit off topic, but an acutal conversation:

Co-worker: How many guns do you own?

Me: I don't know.

Co-worker: What do you mean you don't know?

Me: Let me put it this way. How many pairs of socks do you own?

Co-worker: Your're serious aren't you?

Me: I suppose I could count them if I ever had a reason.

That really does confuse people when you tell them you don't know exactly how many guns you own.

Rob, you sure don't work in VT? I've had about the same conversation with someone.

Just east of Zone 9, but in Worcester County.
"Why do you need another gun?"

"I tried Chris' .500 last night and that BOOM.. oh Man...."

Only had one person light off one of the Cor-Bon 440 grain Magnum hunter rounds. The MagTec 400gr were plenty - and those do have a much better muzzle flash! Hopefully Jon Green will send his pics so i can post them.

At the end, we all lined up to take out bowling pins.

You hear "snap, bang, crack, pop, BOOM"

RETIRED, at home or wherever I want to be
"Why do you need another gun?"



To round out my collection. (this can be used over and over - usually)

Because I need one.

Because I want one.

Because.

The last three reasons can only be used once...probably.


I'm lucky, my wife never asks.

She did ask me how many I had. I told her I really didn't know, I never actually counted them. She says, guess. I told her I wouldn't want to give her an incorrect number. :)

Yesterday I opened my cabinets to show some to my Bro-in-law. She was there and said,"I just wanted to see how many you really have."

Not a word was said after that.

My son showed her the little .22 he was carrying. I pulled the.45 from my waist. She asked if I had an inferiority complex !

I guess I can consider myself fortunate I have her.

When mine asked how many I have... My answer went like this.

Do you consider .22's as guns
How about black powder?
Do they count if they are not assembled right now?
Do you mean pistols or rifles?
Do you consider revolvers pistols?
What about shotguns, they aren't rifles
Should I include auto loading rifles?

It went on like this for about 10 minutes until she punched me in the arm. I tackled her and tickled her until she almost peed her pants.

Gun questions over!

I guess I'm just lucky. My girl knows exactly how much I have. Every two weeks, range use or not is cleaning and oiling day, and she loves to help me. ( Bascially she just runs and gets more towels or q-tips) She used to hate guns, but since last week she has been walking around with her new Springfield baby 1911 45. in her purse claiming its a girls best accessorie.

Grifter, what you've got there is a KEEPER. Definitely don't let that one get out of your grasp. I only know a few others like that. 3 post here, plus, I married one like, raised one like that, and was raised by one like that. None know just how many guns I have, though, but they all have their own anyways.

Mine is right up there too. She was raised around guns, and used to go hunting with her father. We will be getting her a nice 642 in a little while. The discussion above was one between us when I said that I had an immediate need for at least 3 more rifles and a new shotgun. She then asked how many I have now, and I was playing with her.

Oh Oh! An admission of DV!!

Yup, all gun questions over.

Unsuitable person! [wink]

Gee, Len, are you so familiar with domestic violence that you have it down to an acronym?

Sure sounds like you may be unsuitable to me! :D
