I might have messed up?

The keeper of the checkbook was helping me pack everything up, in my den, prepairing for my move to Tennessee. Now she knows how many guns I have. She made some comment about how many guns do you have, and I said more than I need but less than I want. I tried to explain that you can't use one gun for every occasion, the I asked her how many pairs of shoes she owned. She was not amused bt that comparison........Robin

    Here's a little hint:

    If you can make 'em look enough alike for most to be fooled you can double up on a couple and she won't know...

    There's no reason she needs to know how many guns you have. That way if 1 or 2 more show up, who's the wiser

    Yeah, calling her Amelda was not good.

    This is easy...... Have two safes and never, ever open both at the same time. If she sees something she hasn't seen before, just tell her that it was usually kept in the other safe. Just keep moving them around a little at a time.

    I had two ARs for years and my wife never caught on to it.

    At least you didnt fill the car up to the gills with guns and then say " Sorry honey, there's not enough room for you, You'll have to take the bus........"

    Or did you???

    I am trying to figure out why you put "might have" and the question mark in your title. It should have read: I messed up big time!

    Eh.... a month from now she won't remember how many you have any more than you would remember how many pairs of shoes she has....... if she were to tell you.

    I've sold mine wife on the idea that because all of my guns are kept in close quarters, occasionally they will breed (hence, the ever-growing collection).
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    My GF just asked me to build her a lefty AR, and SHE is funding it. I think I'm safe for the time being!

    That's exactly how I lost a Ruger 22/45 and a S&W 22S.
