    Your husband buys you a new gun and 1,000 rounds of ammo for Valentine's Day and you're happy about it! ;f

    Or when you start thinking about spending a weekend without the kid(s) and your deepest desire is to book a tactical weapons training class for the two of you!

    thoughts of an upcoming honeymoon (a couple years away yet) are between Thunder Ranch or Chapman Academy. ;f

    You give your ISO a funny look when he asks you "What kind of gun is this?"

    I've not yet got a gun for V-Day, but for the last two years I got holsters and accessories. Last year I went into work, and the co-workers were asking me what I got, and I proudly announced that I got a holster, and they were like, "and you're okay with that?" I told them that was what I asked for.;f

    The catch was that I needed to give as good as I got... at the same gun show my darling husband saw a Springfield 1911 that he drooled over so I got him a .45 and he got me a compact 9mm and we both got ammo!

    Wow - it's official. We're gun geeks. ;a

    My SO likes to take the credit for turning me into a "gun geek". I've tried to tell him it started long before him...

    Back when we first got married 27 years ago, I bought a Buck folding Hunter with finger grooves for my wife for Christmas. (A pretty hot knife to carry many years ago). She was so proud of it and she showed it to her mom. What a face she made! I have since gotten her a Gerber than a Cold Steel Voyager and Surefire G2 for her purse. When she completed her first firearms training course, I said we would buy any firearm she wanted. She picked a S&W686+ 4" that she since swapped for my Ruger SP101. She has taken to my S&W642 for CCW. So for our next anniversary, I hope to be able to get her her own S&W642. Of course, it will need the customizing that I have put into mine! Got to take care of my lady - my love!

    BTW, for our 25th anniversary, I suprised her with a Singer Featherweight sewing machine in excellent condition. She was overjoyed with that gift much to the suprise of her coworkers.

    My wife is nuts about them Singer Featherweights too. I guess they come in handy if you're running a marathon and quilting at the same time. :)

    It is a pretty neat little machine though. I prefer Model 70 Featherweights myself. :)

    I think a single trip turned Pilotkitten into a "gun geek" (I always was) as she now has indicated high interest in a Glock, and an AR-15, and maybe a Sub-2000, and a 1911, somewhere along that order....
