My wife said I have to sell guns or power ranger toys to pay it off. Goodbye autographed ranger collection!


So you have to change your tagline in the box to the left.  (They are related, right?)

My wife would tell me to sell my collection of whatever, not buy the Mossberg and grow up.  Hope you did not get that flak.

If you need a second magazine its time to call in air support.

I came into this world kicking, screaming, covered in someone else's blood. I certainly don't mind leaving the same way

I have very few collections. The ones I do have, are from things that I have been into since childhood. IF I had a wife, and IF she told to sell a collection and grow up, I might with respond with; "OK, how much are divorces these days,..." LOL!

She has no problem with me collecting toys, but she isn't putting any of our money to it. I can't wait to shoot this thing.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

Speaking of childhood collections...........once upon a time, I had a rather vast collection of original Star Wars toys and collectibles, which I stored in the attic when I left for the military. I didn't find out until it was too late, that my mom had sold the house and moved without bothering to clean out the attic.  :blink:
As soon as I did find out, I contacted the new owners only to be informed that they had cleaned out the attic themselves and sold all my stuff for next to nothing in a yard sale.

Don't talk about what you have done (or what you
are going to do). Do it and let it speak for itself.

Bad part of it all is my wife wants me to sell some of my guns.  Said I didn't need anywhere near that many.  Well, thats what I was told before I had to sell them to buy scripts and stuff.  Only have my EDC and a break barrel 20 ga now.

"our money" on a hobby you enjoy?

Next time she wants to spend money on something she wants, use that tagline and see how long you sleep on the couch.

I understand times are still tough for some people on the forum, but my ex-w who left me to raise our son solo at least let me budget to buy a lever action out of "our money."

But I long ago truly learned--- Its always better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

Our money is going to a trip to ATL for Dragon Con again. Conventions cost a lot and are our vacations. Oh! I'm only $50 away!
