How come many kumanders will really pokpok very hard our heads when they find out how much we love our toys? And how much each costs? And how much we spend on accessories and ammo? God help us!!!

You need not go far imagining what i tell her. That it was a gift from a client, that i got it at a big 75% discount, that its free! :supergrin:

Ok yung bayad utang and raffle prize. Just in time, I am about to ran out of reasons na. Will pick up next week or so my G35, problem is I can't pass it off as my G21.

Really, why do some kumanders react negatively to our toys. My kumander, i feel, is not against the toy per se. I think its more of wasting money?

I'll tell her napulot ko sa mall yung G35.

re: kumander's wrath

Hi sugarol, gandang topic nitong binuksan mo sir, he-he-he...
My kumander naman is supportive when i told her then, that i'm going to buy my first gun. Warning nya lang sa kin, is to be a responsible gun owner. During sundays pag may time, i used to go to the range (armscor mcs) with her + the kulits (my 2 kids). The 3 of them strolls the mall while i shoot inside the range. Eto na...pagdating ng bayaran sa range, di ko malaman kung paano ko itatago sa kanya ang bill ko dahil ang allowed nya lang sa kin ay 50 pcs of ammo-reload pa! Eh ganado ako, ayun umabot ng 80 pcs range ammo pa. Buti na lang di nya nakita, kung hindi...mahabang tanungan aabutin ko. So far wala pa naman akong inaabot na DELUBYO from my wifey regarding my hobby... as long na di nya makikita mga resibo ko sa armscor. :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin:

Nga pala, don't tell your kumander na napulot mo sa mall yung G35, tell her it's just a toy but you need to have it licensed! He-he-he :supergrin: :supergrin:

buti na lang ako nung single pa ako ng bilhin ko yung mga baril ko. Kasama pa siya nung bilhin ko yung p22 sa gun show sa megamall kay alam nya price. then binili ko yung USP ng kaibigan ko ng malaman nya sabi 15k lang mas mahal pa nga kako yung p22 di nya alam half lang yung price ng pagkakasabi ko dun sa USP.

ngayon kasal na kami we need to consult each other if meron kaming bibilhin ng more than 5k. pero di ko parin sinasabi yung totoong price ng mga airsoft guns ko baka itapon nya lahat.

There should be a support group for guys like us.

And don't even get started about gun-related accessories like weapon lights, holsters, tactical knives, training books and videos, etc. Hay naku :upeyes:

HAHAHAHAHA...

A CHARMING THREAD.

I remove the price tags of the gun magazines (as the publications for reading, not the ammo receptacle) I buy. I also told the missus that my S&W 686 is paltik made in Danao which I bought for P2,500. I also told her that I spent P150 for gun license and P350 for ptc. She also knows that my 125 grain Federal JHPs are only P10 each.

My biggest problem now is how to explain to her my AR15 project when it is finished. When she finds out, she might die of heart attack, maging byudo ako. Or in anger she shoots me with the AR, maging byuda sya. HAHAHAHA.

well, when my wife was still my gf, i was into teen chicks and those bang bus stuff, now shes telling her friends at least now i go home early after going to the range and she knows who im with, i quit smoking, i dont drink na sa labas and i go to church every sundays;) ;) ;)

i guess eventually it becomes a matter of transparency. my wife at least knows the ballpark figure of how much my toys cost. only difference is, i was into this "thing" long before i met her so she's used to my militaria collection, guns and gear. besides, i'm not into the "expensive" stuff anyways. hehehe!

more importantly, i've taught her to appreciate the hobby so she would at least understand why i'm so addicted to shooting. thanks also to the fact that it was my "bread and butter" for a good two and a half years.

Ako at gf ko tapos na dyan...sa daming ng tanong sinigawan ko at sabi ko wag na ako gulohin ng mga tanong na ganyan tapos ayun nagulpi tuloy....AKO!!! :supergrin: hehehe but seriously talk about honesty eh noh?! long before i met my gf i was shooting already and now we're together i told her about and she supports it and minsan sya pa bumibili mga components pang reload ko :) :) and she's looking forward to learn how to shoot pa nga eh so hehehe :)i'm happy...


i think it's just a matter of explaining to them and to show them that it doesn't affect the family budget...un lang naman yata ang reklamo nila diba?

simple question with a simple answer,.....ECONOMICS!

If what you spend on your toys is insignificant to the family budget, or if the expense of maintaining such a hobby is something that won't be missed, wives should not react negatively IMO.

But the problem is that there are some who put their hobby first before the family budget. Hard to explain why some people live beyond their means but the reality is that a lot do.

I'm not so sure it's automatically that rational.

Often enough a spouse's objections are merely indicative of
deeper grievances than one over a violation of fiscal good sense:
not enough quality time spent; too little attention paid; or perhaps
HER own purchasing proclivities are being unfairly suppressed.

Maybe I'm talking out of my rectum, since I don't have personal
experience of the topic-problem. However, I know quite a few
extremely well-to-do friends who can certainly afford the hobby
and so much more, but are nevertheless needled by their spouses for
the indulgence.


In my case, it is actually my wife who needs more restraint in the
context of firearm-related purchases: some years ago, she wanted to
get me a PPK, but I opted for a Bersa. Later, she promoted the idea
of my getting a Colt's NRM, but I declined in favor of an Armscor.
Sometimes, she gifts me with ammo/accessories for guns we don't have!
('Yet.' is her cheerful defense.)

I have my own insanities, mostly for her benefit, and then it is her
turn to restore logic to the equation.

Anyway, if one's spouse is objecting, it certainly may be JUST an
issue of fiscal responsibility, but one should also check if there
isn't some other, deeper grievance at work --if so, that is something
that must needs be addressed, all hobbies be damned.

Everytime i make "himas" on my guns, especially my baby m16, my wifey call me "nuts". Just ignored her, i must admit i'm really "nuts" when it comes to guns...:supergrin:

Sugarol:
Because of this thread that you've started, ipagpapatayo kita ng rebulto in the middle of Armscor Firing Range in Marikina. Ang plate na ilalagay ko..."He dared to thread! "

Amused with the comments on this thread, I let my wife read them. While reading,the ONLY word that she kept on saying, repeat the ONLY word, was "TAMA!!!!

Horge:
Me and my wife paricularly liked the way you put those words together.
Sir, ikaw ba si Rene Saguisag?
Mga Bro, no matter WHAT sport or inclination we are in...PALAGING MAY IKO-KONTRA ANG MGA MISIS (MAYBE NOT ALL) NATIN.

I've been once a member of a group, catholic-charismatic one that conducted a study on this. Our group gives out lectures, shares family experiences and try to patch-up husband & wife relationships (Marriage Encounter), deepen relationship with God ( Life in the Spirit Seminar)with kids (Family Encounter) and further deepen couple realtionship (Family Life Deepening Seminar).

We had to conduct a study on below topic since this matter always pops-up in ALL arguments that we presided upon.

On the objective: WHY MAJORITY OF WIVES ARE CONTRADICTORY TO HUSBANDS' EXTRA FAMILY INCLINATIONS...please scan through.

Result of our study: On the premise that we are solo in a certain indulgence-excluding her. 3 reasons why:

1. Time: whatever time we spend on our indulgence(s), they will always take it as "minus-the-time" that we have to spend for her, kids or the whole family.
2. Money: whatever money we spend on our indulgence(s), they will always take it as "minus-the-money" that we ought to spend for her, kids, family and/or home. We had participants who were filthy rich but this reason came out as well.
3. "Bakit Siya Lang Attitude": this pertains to the feeling of wives being a sport-widow, e.g. "golf-widow", poker-widow, mahjong-widow, cycling-widow etc. PALAGI SILANG NAIIWAN!!

Our patch-up recommendations:
1. TIME: Husband must divide his time six-way equally: GOD, wife, work, kids, wife & kids and himself. GOD must be first-all others in any order. If we, husbands, devote time for her (alone), kids only, her and kids, then, WE OUGHT TO HAVE TIME (PERSONAL TIME) FOR OURSELVES. Surely, she will NOT contradict the time we will spend for our hobbies.
2. MONEY: Deep and real communication between spouses. Allow her to understand that your chosen sport is really expensive and will definitely NOT affect intended family budgets. On this, I always tell my wife that the money I spend or will spend for my guns WILL COME FROM MY EXTRA INCOME OUT OF EXTRA DEALS OR WORK OR CONSULTANCY THAT I'M ENGAGE IN. And this, we ALL can do. Tap your hidden talents. Teach how to shoot for fee.
3. ATTITUDE: We tell wives, "that is your own decision". Who told you na "magmukmok ka sa isang tabi" while your husband is out there playing golf. You, WIVES, MUST ALSO HAVE TIME FOR YOURSELVES ALONE (NOT WITH HUBBY/NOT WITH KIDS). Breath SOME AIR ALONE! Engage also in a sport, magpa-pedicure ka while hubby is firing or magpa-spa ka. Engage in leisure activity NOT HOUSE WORK. Kasi kung housework...LALO KANG MAAAWA SA SARILI MO NA ANG HUSBAND MO NAG-GOGOLF TAPOS IKAW NAG-TATRABAHO SA BAHAY.

Lastly, para lalong HINDI kumontra wife ko, I always tell her: "ANG DAMING HOLDAPAN NGAYON. AND DAMING CARJACKING. TALAGANG DAPAT LAGI TAYONG HANDA. Pero may gun ka nga HINDI mo naman alam gamitin. Talagang dapat MAG-PRACTICE AKO SA RANGE PARA SA ACTUAL NA SITUATION ALAM KONG GAMITIN BARIL KO. Lalu na kung SASALI pa ako sa mga competition, mas lalong kabisado ko baril ko."

AMEN!

Hindi nya naman malalaman na may shotgun ako hanggang di pa kami kasal. Ngayon nga ang akala nya yung 1911 lang ang gamit ko. Di nya pa alam na di ko binenta yung .22 magnum revolver and Daewoo and di pa nya alam yung NZ.

Pag tinatanong nya yung ibang baril sabi ko nabenta ko na. HEHEHE

i guess, the best thing to do is to teach her how to shoot the gun including rifles so she can learn to enjoy our toys. if not, then you have no other choice but to tell her every toy that you wanna buy and show her who's boss. unahan mo na agad sabay bilihan mo na rin ng bagong perfume or whatever para pagdating sa bahay may pampalamig ng ulo. hehehe.
