    Well you guys will be happy to know I asked the wife permission to buy a new pistol. First thing she says." Hows the pallet money?" So that's a yes? I ask. Let me think about it. she says.

    So its a yes! Yes she says!

    Love that woman.

    So much for the no-preaching from the holier than thou crowd. Every relationship is different. It's not yours to judge and kind of OT when the OP asks for ways to hide purchases.

    Happy wife, happy life, and that's all that matters.

    To turn the question, "is he a man?" back around. Are you a man, if you cannot control your wife's tendencies towards abuse of the welfare system? The question is moot, because it is not my place to judge.

    No, no. You've got it all wrong. We're afraid of the wretched hell that angry wives can make a man's life. We're afraid that the laundry wont be washed and the dishes will start piling up in the sink. We're afraid we might actually have to do something.

    When my wife's being bitchy and she asks me to do something all she hears is "yes dear." Now when I say that I may mean "I hate you ungrateful whore" but it comes out yes dear. I'm too lazy to argue. Mad wife=argue=not worth it=sometimes lie about guns. Does that mean I fear my wife? Sure. Am I a man? You bet your ass, and a lazy one at that.

    You have to skim your money and set it aside out of the account. Once you got enough to buy a gun, get it. Bring it home while she isn't watching and put it in the safe. I bought her a new carry gun and she still hasn't figured out it isn't the same one she used to have. (she isn't carrying yet, she doesn have her CPL yet).

    By looking at some of my fellows I can repeat after Marx: "Marriage is a legal form of prostitution" - for both.

    Truth...

    Also, I enjoy sex. I enjoy sex much better with a partner, particularly my wife. I enjoy sleeping in bed, its not a huge deal because sleeping on the couch is like a camping adventure, but I also enjoy sleeping in bed. Relationships are full of give and take. She gives me shit about every thing I do, and I take it. Sometimes its necessary to bend the truth to keep the peace.

    I am once divorced myself, and I have learned from my mistakes. I imagine the guys here who have little methods of "sneaking" those gun purchases have a bit of knowledge about their marriages and actually have happy and heathy marriages, some women dont support a mans hobbies to the extent we would like them to, its just a hobby, not a huge deal. As long as we measure what we can and cant afford. I am not going to go out and buy that new $1,500 1911 if we are out of milk, have a flat tire on the vehicle, behind on insurance, etc. As long as I know that my family is taken care of and they also get something, video games for the kids, mani/pedis for the wife, etc. then I am comfortable with my purchase.

    I am not a color blind - I see both colors pretty well. But some people told me that there are halftones.
    Well, I guess I have to trust them...

    Don't hide anything from the wife... but don't volunteer information either. And I certainly don't ask permission. If I want a new toy, I get it. If it's near a holiday/birthday, I might tell her in advance and she can "get it for me". Same goes for her... I don't monitor/regulate her spending either. We've both been playing this game long enough to know "wants vs. needs" and make sure the "needs" are covered first. We can find plenty of better things to argue over besides money. My wife supports my hobby/addiciton, and understands that "steel and lead" are investment commodities. The only thing she questions is why our 2yo daughter "needs" another gun (in the safe) every time I build/buy her one. "She'll grow into it" and "It won't ever be as cheap as it is today" still don't compute to her. Oh well... I've got nothing to complain about compared to some on this board.

    All this sneaking around to buy guns ... you can replace "...hiding gun purchases from the wife..." to "...hiding money for your mistress from your wife..." or any other vice or hobby like drugs, drinking, gambling, porn, comic book collecting, etc. Whatever floats your boat.
