Here are a few important tidbits that I've come across when dealing with the wife and guns and ammo or reloading expenses.  They can be helpful.  Anyone have any others to pass along? 

1. You need to protect her. To protect her you need to be able to shoot. To be able to shoot well you need to practice.

2. Use the dump truck principle. If you want a pickup, don't ask for a pickup. Ask for a dump truck and then compromise and get a pickup. This works with anything. If you want a 30/06, start out by requesting a 460 Weatherby Magnum.

3. Always buy the more expensive to load for gun first. That way you can not only justify reloading equipment but also a cheaper to shoot gun.

4. It's a well known fact that women can only count to three. After you get 3 of anything, the items in question are known as "those" and you can get as many and as much as you like; I got to the critical three in dies, reloading equipment, etc. many years ago.

5. Emphasize what you sell and not so much what you buy.

6. Your kid will tell you how the other kid has so and so but he/she doesn't. The same principle will work for you if you have friends that have more reloading equipment/guns than you do.

7. Purchase gold, jewels, silver, platinum, precious stones, etc. for her. Flowers ain't bad either.

8. Mention how reloading keeps you out of bars and other unsavory activities/places. It helps to have unsavory friends for examples in order to sell this.

9. It is much better to postpone information about a purchase. When your sweetheart notices the stuff many months later, you can in all truthfulness say that you "have had it a long time."

My wife like to sew.  So we do hobby time where she sews on one end of the table and I reload on the other.  I tell her we are spending quality time together.  Love  But in reality we really do not talk much but each of us has a good time.  Well....maybe she talks a lot but I only hear a little.  Either way she gets in a good mood over it.  And since we started doing this she does not seem to mind me bringing home powders.

Good list. All battle proven, lethal tactics, to be sure.
 
I would add this jewel as an addendum to #9, Coby.

My wife sews also, Actually it is the embrodery. She has 3 computerized embrodery machines. I get a scope or rifle she has me to add on to her sewing table. It takes up 2 walls of the game room/Sewing room. Then there is the computer station. When the machine goes out of time or the computer glitches. Fix it fast. She thinks you care. thats what counts. Now and then I even get some trophy sewn on a shirt.Wink It is also fun to go to the sewing store with a fist full of Dove feathers so you can get the correct collor thread. That freaks the sales girls out.  Bucky
