    Y’all are “NOT” thinking outside the correct side of the box...... All you need to do is set down with her, explain the entire issue and make sure she understands all about the household finances, and how much people’s time needs to be considered. After she is feeling sorry for you, make sure she understands that if she would go out and get an additional job the financial situation will get better and you wouldn't have to cut back on components or your extremely necessary and valuable range time.

    Sacrifice? I worked six and seven day weeks and a bazillion hours of overtime since I was eighteen. Before that my father had a landscaping business. After dinner, he'd ask if I had my homework done and when I answered yes, he'd say "Get in the truck. I have to finish up at Mr. so & so's house". I was around twelve. Forget about a candy ass excuse to not go. Waste of breath. Paid a whole fifty cents an hour. Sacrifice? Them days is over, maestro. e-laugh.gif

    The best part of this...., my wife has no idea what this website is and after looking at forum titles, she would just roll the eyes. I don’t think she would even consider reading it, so l’m safe.:D:rolleyes::D

    Well, having been married and divorced a few times. I am enjoying this... I'd bet you all love your wives, and shooting, too. Me, I moved to a remote cabin and - have never been happier. 3 ranges out the house. .22, pistol off the deck & 100 yds. My advice on the shooting, marriage situation? BRAS. Breathe, Relax, Aim and Squeeze. As you see fit... :). or put the AR selector on bullet, bullet, bullet.

    I'm driving a 13 year old Tahoe with 276K on the clock. It still runs strong - I'm hoping to get to 400K. No car payment means money for reloading components. My wife supports my shooting habit and encourages me to take my time when I'm shooting. She'd rather have me on the reloading bench or shooting than doing who knows what else I'd do with my time - at lest she knows where I am. Even bought me a lefty Remington 40X custom shop .308 repeater for my 65th. How's that for a keeper (rifle and wife)?

    I drink pretty good Polish tater juice, cheap beer, drive a 95 F150 and last year got a bit behind on business bills and "donated" a Colt Anaconda, 4 inch in 45 Colt to my business to catch up. My business is shooting, shooting is my life and thank God my wife is a nurse and makes decent denaro.
    I really like good bourbon, but ain't paying $50 a bottle to enjoy a hollow toothful every 3 days or so.
    I hunt groundhogs local to save fuel. Haven't driven to fly fish for Appalachian trout in 2 years, miss that very much.
    My bad habits have been cheapened or eliminated for bullets and powder.
    I don't Talk to any non gun folks long, I respect everyone's O2.
    I'll think of more stuff later.......
