Hi all, I told her I picked the Daystate mk3 up direct from the factory its cheaper that way.

The MK4 I got the shop to make me out a receipt for half the actual value, so far so good.

All my purchases have been pretty well all up front, and "she that must be obeyed' does know about them.
But I have a mate at work who has a number of rifles. And instead of having to put up with the begging thats required to get finance approved hes says its far easier just to go out and buy the rifle and put up with the fight afterwards!!! At least that way he has the rifle!!

Never lie to the wife. Tell her that I'm going to buy whatever and it's going to cost ##.##. Usual response is "As long as you can afford it I don't mind". You should try it. When you do need to tell a porky they're more likely to believe you, not that I'd do such a thing.

She has suspicions, but some of the cost is down to the kids now as they both shoot and need kit & upgrades

Tell them all the new purchases are second hand and are worth more than they cost! (And are therefore an investment)
Never have a joint account. (And if you do, buy the guns with cash)
Always knock 1/3rd to 1/2 off the actual price.
Don't keep reciepts.
Tell them it's not yours, your just setting it up for your mate!!
And my favourite one, As a gardener and handyman I provide pest control services and told her the guns where bought by the business and help to offset my tax bill, therefore saving me money!!

Nope,she thinks half my stuff I got as a cheap bargain and the other half is borrowed.....if she knew that it's all mine and what I really paid for it and that I'm thinking of getting another springer as well she'd throw a fit..........might have to WIN one later in the year
