Adding to the Toolbox

Ok, the wife is not happy. Well sort of. She does not, in her infinite wisdom, believe that it is morally or ethically right to have a pistol, rifle, or shotgun for each and every situation under the sun. I on the other hand, think of them more as tools that have a specific purpose in life (other than just being plain fun). I mean, I've seen her beat a pair of my pliers half to death...

Unfortunately for me, she has seen the old saw about "one man with one gun" in some old book on the bookshelf and likes to throw that out there anytime I'm trying to add to my toolbox so to speak. She forgets that she no longer hunts squirrel with a Rem 1100 and now uses the scoped 597.

Someone please help me with a solid argument that yes, it is indeed proper and required to have the correct rifle, pistol or shotgun for the job at hand. Or at least tell me how you did it. And you can't steal from Gene Hill, because she's already read that too. Oh, and it'd be nice to have this before the ATF sends the stamp for the new suppressor.

Thank you all in advance for your wisdom

Way to little information to tell you a good answer.

My wife lives in LALA land, in other words she in in denial about any possible economic collapse or social unrest. So if I was to take family funds to prep she would probably have a cow.

Fortunately for me (and her though she doesn't know it) I use my eBay and Amazon selling to fund my preps so it doesn't affect the "checking account"

My suggestion is get a alternate revenue stream and use that to get ur guns and ammo, problem solved.

Since I don't know the specifics, a lot of people go gun-heavy just because its fun, maybe that is the problem also.

Good Luck
