    Works great, saves a lot of strife.
    We have the same banking setup, it works great. No arguments when something is brought home

    We do something similar. No separate accounts, we just get a cash "allowance" each week to do with what we want.

    Tongue-in-cheek "nothing's enough" remarks aside, I think this is the answer you're looking for:

    If your hobby is alienating your wife, interfering with your home life, or eating into money meant for other things, you're probably past "enough". Other than that, it's your call.

    Personally, my reaction to "he who dies with the most toys wins" is "he's still dead", but I've got enough hobbies that I probably shouldn't be talking...

    I have been through that "When will you have enough" speach. I told my wife she was crossing a line to a place she didn't want to go. I added as ong as the bills are paid, there is food in the fridge and she has enough money left over to buy whatever she wants then discussions about additions to my gun collection are off limits!

    "a different gun for a different DB"

    "next time you get a gun, I get a new dishwasher"

    "A fridge will be 2 guns"

    "you can never have enough purses and shoes, especially shoes!"

    Personally I would tell her that I would let her know when I have enough...that way i wouldn't have to figure it out...

    But really, when I met my wife she had not only never shot a gun, but was ANTI gun...I don't even know how I converted her but she asks all the time now to get out the rifle or whatever and pop off a few rounds. I have definite plans to get that big "first gun" for her this year. It's also a good feeling to know that if I need her to, she can shoot...

    When I was a kid I wanted to be John Wayne. Aint wanting a thing to do with that Bobit stuff though. The name alone just screams of a problem. Like a self fulfilling prophecy

    Talking

    What is this "enough" of which she speaks?
    Really though, there is never "enough"----only "not enough."
    Glad I'm single...

    When is enough?

    You can tell her that guns are kind of like computers. You can never have too large a monitor, too much memory on the motherboard, or too much storage space on your drive(s). Also, good backup is essential. It would also help a LOT if you got HER something she really wants from time to time to show that you are trying to make her happy, and not just being selfish, you just really enjoy guns and shooting them. If she more of less handles the money, you can tell her it is a great investment, and a hedge against inflation. If she is into politics, you can tell her guns are a great hedge against the tyranny of government over the governed. IF she would agree, take her out to an outdoor or indoor range sometime and let her shoot and see how fun it is. At least one or two of these will work. I was married sometime between the Great Flood and the building of the pyramids in Egypt. My wife has 8 dogs, 8 horses, and three cats. I only have 9 Cayuga ducks, on the back bass and bream pond, so there is plenty of room to haggle for more guns, and keep a straight face in the process. Besides, I DID buy her two S&W stainless .38 short barreled revolvers, one for the truck, and one to carry whenever she pleases, wherever she pleases. My sense is if you meet her halfway, you will be able to order your next gun. The general rule is if 'momma' isn't happy, nobody is happy. Enjoy your newest firearm.

    Hilarious thread!
    I'm up to 5 and each time I clear Fed and walk out with my new purchase I'm scouting another gun.
    I'll keep going until the day I die. Last time I checked guns held their value slightly better than purses, purfumes, diamonds, high end lotions reverse aging lotions, dinner plates....on and on.....where does that nonsense end?

    I told my wife that if you put your guns in the safe with the light out, they breed...Don't think she bought it.
