No, not looking at porn websites. She caught me redhanded drooling on my laptop on Fusion's site. Saving pics and options. Daaaaaaamn.

She said that I should really stay away from Glocktalk and you guys. I used to be content with a Glock, then an HK, or a Sig. Now, I've got this 1911 itch I need to scratch. I will have the CBOB in my hands by next month and I'm already trying to convince her that I realllllllly need a Fusion 9mm bobtail.

This is bad. Very bad. I don't see it ending well.

She's COMPLETELY anti-gun. Doesn't even want her folks to know I have them in the house. Yes, this is a 33 year old woman.

Needless to say, she wasn't happy when I brought home the M&P. She asked "WTF do you need a machine gun for?"

It can get better. My wife was raised in the Northeast and for many years tolerated guns in the house. About 6 years ago at age, well over 60, she took her CCL and for the last 3 plus years she has shot practical pistol matches with her Glock 19. Next week her STI Electra will be picked up. We have been married over 42 years and enjoy shooting together.

Teach your wife to shoot Hokie..

I may not go back FT and just get something PT nights (when my unemployment runs out in Aug) and continue to stay home with the kids (4 & 2). I was paying $17k per year in childcare.

Well I am picking up the CBOB next month. I have a Sparks VM2 on the way in a few months and that should keep me in good shape for the forseeable future. I want a 9mm commander bobtail to go with the CBOB...either a Fusion or DW Guardian when they come out. Will be able to carry both in the Sparks so that will be perfect. Will take me 6-12 months to find all the change in the couch and floormats in the family truckster, but I figure those 2 pistols and my M&P (for fun CHEAP shooting) will keep me a happy camper for a very long time.

She needs to come hang out with my wife and my buddies girl. This was my wife's second time shooting a gun. She loved it. She's not looking to get one, but really trusts me around one and likes to go shooting if I invite her along.

Best part is Fusion tried to blame me for everything, Said I dropped the barrel on the floor and caused the pit mark, and I guess I dropped the one barrel into a lathe and left cutter marks.:whistling:

My Lord what a beautiful gun. To think there are people in the world that bash these works of art and talk about how guns kill people and all that nonsense.
