I'm not married, nor do I have a g/f I've bought a gun for...but I think if you buy your wife a gun, much like you would a car, even if you paid for it, you bought it for her, so it's hers. That's not to say you shouldn't have a right to shoot her gun or drive her car, but you bought it for her, so it's hers. Santa Claus has brought me plenty of presents, and they're mine, not his.
Good concept in Joeshwa24's post, just in dire need of a few paragraphs.
The firearms in my house are mine I suppose, but simply because I use them and can legally carry the handguns whereas she cannot. The long guns are primarily my interest, but I've often referred to my old rifle that she likes as "hers." Really doesn't matter.
I suppose the mixer is ours too, but she makes so much better use of it than I do.
I don't think I could work well in a marriage where there is "my" money and "your" money, expenses, etc. Too much complication.
Yepper on that.

I think of that as an investment in marital harmony and preventing .... what's the legal phrase..."loss of consortia"?
Damn... I feel like I jumped into a cold lake.

My Big Screen
The only thing she actually uses or cares about is the TV.
I always separate them. How many hand guns do I have. 5.
Wife has 2 & Mom has 2.
I'm just glad I can now post in this thread. I just got my first handgun and there is no mistaking that it is mine. My wonderful wife has no interest in sharing ownership of my gun. When I arrived home with it she asked where hers was and has made no bones about asserting full ownership of her gun that I'm about to buy her (should have it in the next few days). Some of you may think this is silly but I feel like a very lucky man that not only is my wife comfortable with me bringing a gun into our home but she enjoys shooting with me and cannot wait to get her own. Next comes CCW.
BTW.. Mine is a 4" Compact XD45 and hers will be a Taurus PT111 9mm

And don't be suprised when she out-shoots you.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
If my name is on the paper work at the time of purchase...it's mine.
My wife really doesn't like guns around the house...but she is not against them either.So ,she lets me be with my hobby as long as they are safely locked away when not in use.
Which reminds me...I need to get her out to the range...she's better competition then most of my "gun buddies". I am still in the process of trying to convince her to carry,since she works odd/late hours and she has to park a pretty long distance away.
