I won't say how much I've been spending on preps, but I've been a little gung-ho about it these days. Got paid today, bought two books, a good pressure cooker and the hand pump for the well. I've already allocated all the rest of this check, just haven't gotten to spending it yet. Like I tell my husband, at least it's not shoes and purses! ;)

Do any of you get in trouble with your significant others for how much you spend getting geared up?

Not I. My wife just says, "whatever you want dear" which roughly translates to as long as it is for us it is OK.
I don't have to tell her anything but that money is tight because she has no idea how much money we have or where it is going. As long as we stay below the monthly budget she gets to get her trinkets and I get mine and ours.

Early on when I felt our exposure was too severe there was some head butting about the pace I was on but it soon faded. We pretty much make it a team effort these days, with the exception of an every now then covert ammo aquisition, lol.

Mrs Inor complain about spending money on preps? Not in a million years. Just last night I suggested we should buy ourselves a couple luxury items for our anniversary that is coming up in a few weeks, thinking women want luxury stuff for sentimental days like anniversaries. When I called home over lunch today, she admonished me and said the money would be put to better use buying more guns and ammo. That's my girl! :)

That sounds dangerous, how big is that pressure cooker?:-?

No , when you been married 38 years you kind of worked all that stuff out long ago.
From what I have seen the last few years more women are waking up to what is happening to our country .
They seem to be a major driving force in new fire arms purchases.

Yep. MS. Rigged's birthday and our Anniversary are this month, 2 days apart, and she wants a new gun...............and new flooring in the game room, living room and halls.

If Momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy.

After 43 years of marriage she knows that I'm going to do whatever I think is best. She also knows that I will not do anything that will effect are life style without talking to her first.

I prep to live not live to prep!
Being married is what allow us to get to the point we don't have to worry about spending a few bucks on a 1000's rounds or a new weapon.
If I had stayed single I would likely be limited to a 25 dollar shot gun and 1 box of shells.
