    Just been looking at the Pulsar Digisight N750 on the Scott Country website, now all I need is a way to convince SHMBO (she who must be obeyed) that I need one.

    Just tell her that the voices in you head told you to do it. Then start slobbering with a blank expression on your face.
    Works for me.

    Do it then take the telling off! You can then have an argument and storm off, new product in hand :)

    here is a story from the corvids way................around 13 years ago i decided i was ready for a staffy, so i broached the subject with the mrs. it was only a tentative enquiry to see how she felt. she loved staffies and her dad always had one.

    her reply was...........' i am telling you now, you are not, and i mean not getting a dog!'

    and off to work she went.

    i was only making an enquiry as to how the land lied, so thyat very day off i went and bought a dog, he is still with us today :up:

    Buy it along with this http://www.moneysupermarket.com/deals/national-deals/2422/aspire/view-deal

    Hand the necklace and earrings over and tell her that you bought these expensive heart shaped female accoutrements as a token of your undying love and appreciation for her.

    Next day ask to go out hunting with said gun item attached to rifle and say "oh I just picked up this as I needed it for ............ ", kiss her and then walk out happy that you were honest and had done what was best!

    Good luck

    If you have a joint account you are screwed, if not do as I do, when my mum says no more guns I buy several more and don't tell her. She doesn't know the difference, to her a gun is a gun and I walk straight past her with them.

    The way I would go about a situation like this... is get her something that will keep her happy and of course.. what you are after and she won't give a toss about ur New toy which means you have got away Scott free... No pun intended lol

    Cant believe what I am reading, tell her the truth. Its the only option for a loving relationship. So you got that, and remember to sound excited that you actually won the competition. Jump up and down a bit, run around the room, scream and shout. Good luck. All the best Si.

    Yes. Tell her the truth. You've bought a gun. (assuming that you're not stealing food off the table/mortgage money to do so) End of story.
    Enjoy it. Offer to take her shooting with it. It could be something you share together. :rolleyes: :)

    Are testicles not common fixtures on agf? Lol.

    Mine isn't keen on my fac plans but she knows I'll do it anyway.

    Never set precedent for doing as you're told. . . It's a slippery slope!

    How about 'My Dear isn't it time for a new handbag' then offer to help buying it.
    You know buying your new "Pulsar" would make you complete and happy !!
    Well it worked for me and I am almost through with the post shopping therapy :)
