Default How do you hide your Carbines ?

I now have 4 and my wife thinks I have one. I am ok as long as I take out 1 at a time. I did manage to get 2 out to take pictures without getting caught but had to put them back quickly. I really would like to get all 4 out at once but can't seem to make it happen.

Now to compound the problem I can't fit all the guns in my safe so I have to lock them in a closet, she is now getting suspicious of the closet. I really don't want to have to rent a storage area to keep the guns in. I had to do this with my sports car collection and it has gotten expensive. I have to leave the house in my pickup go to the rented garage and park the tuck and take one of the sports cars out for a drive. This could get complicated because I also have a sailboat boat she doesn't know about in a slip at the lake. So if I want to go for a ride and shooting then for a sail I have to make a lot of stops. I forgot to mention the RV I have stored at the self storage lot. I guess I could store the carbines on the boat or the rv but that doesn't seem like a wise idea.

I need some advice from some of you older and sneaker veterans of carbine collecting.

Get a gang box and put it in the RV, weight it down with ammo and store the carbines in there.

If you have sportscar "collection" then lil'mama can replaced!

Man up and tell her if she don't like it you'll trade her in on two 20 year olds!

I told mine before I married her 20 years ago that I do as I do and if she didn't like it I was lookin for a woman when I found her.....

Works for me. Your results may vary.

220 would kill me. Anytime a young girl talks to me I wonder what she wants. I am a 12 volt man.

I told my wife that I was going to trade her in for two 20 year-olds. She told me that I wasn't wired for 220!!!

Mr.Clark, it has come to our attention that you own sailboats, a fleet of sportscars, a gun collection, a very nice home and you work as a teller at a Bank. Please come to the Mississippi Bureau office for an interview.

Couldn't help it, just kidding!

I wrecked sailboat, 2 of the 3 old sports cars aren't running, the gun collection doesn't come close to most I see here but I do have a very understanding wife.
