You probably followed Ralphie's Red Ryder BB gun ploy. Leaving a trail of hints all around. How else would your wife know all the detail nomenclature of 2 bricks virgin ammo run? Nice plan SHOOTER!

Excellent!

Do you have enough guns to fill all the slots? Or must you allow understanding wife to twist an arm to bring in more guns to fill the empty slots?

This will probably not be my final smart azz comment this new year.

Well I got her, she is in the garage, at the moment. Of course she is a 24 gun safe but might hold 15 as most safes seem to be overrated. I ain't complaining though.
