Its a big store :) ....Some people have had issues dealing with RVS. Personally, they've been okay to deal with. I hear these "sales events" that they hold are a zoo.... so be prepared.

Oh man....well thank you for the heads up. Maybe I'll give a call before I head up. I can't remember a pistol that I've gone to so much trouble for ever!!!

Fair point. I'm sure I'm going overboard in trying to find this thing. Like i said i've never gone to this much trouble before for anything. I agree that the stores will be flooded with them eventually. I'm already on a waiting list so I should just wait it out

I only work about 5 minutes away. I'll check it out when I get out of work. Maybe I can duck out a little early.

Truth be told I was really trying to get this one before my wedding next Friday. After that the bank accounts will be joint (I'll still keep some money separate on the side) and my purchases won't fly under the radar so easily!! Love your mothers day idea.....smart man!!!

The key to marital bliss is separate bank accounts......I nixed the telling me what too do with and how to spend my money business years ago. I've been working all my adult life, I'm 45, I did and still do my time......we have food and the bills are paid, I'll be damned if I let myself get hen-pecked over money for "my" enjoyment of life. Besides, once that stuff starts it just makes you resentful and angry inside....which leads to other issues in a marriage.
Congarts and be happy :D

I can't speak from experience yet but the logic is right on. I'm having a hard time with the whole joint account thing for the exact reasons you pointed out. On a separate note, let me know when you get your Shield. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

Not to hijack this post however I agree with Pain! If you want a happy marriage, keep your funds separate! Especially if you are going to buy guns! They are not cheap and I know my wife would freak if she ever found out what I have spent! She pays for groceries and the kid's expenses and I pay the mortgage and the utilities. We have been married going on 21 years and we have never had a fight over money! Congrats on your pending marriage, however you really should think about maintaining separate bank accounts!! What she doesn't know won't hurt her (or your marriage)!

My solution is separate accounts AND a joint account. We each deposit a set amount of money in to the acct to cover expenses like the mortgage, utilities, etc. Any of our pay that is left over is for whatever the hell we want. Works great.

Yeah I have every intention of keeping a separate account for myself and she will probably do the same. The joint account WAS going to be the main account (direct deposits from work going into the joint) to be used for bills and everything with my separate account for smaller personal things. You guys are giving me something to think about here. She doesn't have any idea what I spend on guns and I'd like to keep it that way. I'm going to have to rethink my strategy now. Thanks guys!!!
