Not necessarily. Could be like my case where neither of us should be allowed to be in control of our own money. 😂 😂
Yeah, my wife was a bean counter for over 40 years. She has been my "buffer" of sorts when it comes to gun purchases, although I hear her on the phone telling her friends what Dennis wants, he gets, so it's kind of been a partnership in the finances.
I could have got a lot more is the excuse I use.

I'll say that I've got more than I should ever want, and certainly more than I need!!
Let's break it down.
How many guns does one need?
I was in my mid 30's after military service before owning anything other than a single shot .410. It killed everything I hunted and probably taught me to make sure game was in range before shooting.
Uncle loaned me a Winchester 1890 pump rimfire that was shot out for awhile.
After that, Gibsons was going out of business and sold some .22 semi auto rifles for $35 each.
Bought three and gave away two for presents. Still have one.
Ex wife said she was going to get a cat for the house. I said if she does, I'll get a Rem semi auto 30-06. She did and I did.
Great rifle for short range but at 100 yards, could never get anything better that a 4.5" group no matter what reload I put through it.
The tomcat across the street took care of the cat the wife brought home. I hate cats.
So, how many guns does one REALLY need?

easy tip, just don't tell her. Or say i won't ask about your amazon packages and you don't ask about my gun/accessory purchases. I'm happy to have separate finances and a wife who doesn't care about guns.
