    I am so angry right now. Brightwater Ventures really screwed me over (and not in a way where they at least bought me dinner first). I went in an hour or so ago and picked up one of the new SpeedVaults that mount vertically (which is super cool BTW). The problem is just how in the world am I supposed to lie to my family about how much I spent when there is more than one price tag on the thing??? Geez, guys! One price tag! I go to the trouble of peeling off the one on top of the box before getting home only to realize after I try to claim it was super inexpensive there was one on both ends as well. Now how am I supposed to say no to my other half blowing $200 on a new rug because we can't afford it when I just dropped almost that much on a new safe? You guys are making it hard for a guy to lie to their spouse about their toys. If you take away the lies and deceit just what is there to hold a marriage together!?! ;)

    Ya,
    They screwed me over by giving me an unbelievable deal on a Glock so I couldn't pass it up.

    They are good at draining my wallet.:bluelaugh:

    When did they legalize prostitution in WA? Ya both got screwed and it involved cash - are ya sure you want to admit to a crime on the internet? The cops may be knocking on your doors any second now wanting you to testify against BV for violation of RCW 9A.88.030... :bluelaugh:

    My father always tells me in situations such as this, 'Life is tough and then you die.' John Wayne added, 'Yup and it's tougher if you are stupid.'

    John is right.

    PP, sounds to me like you were a willing participant.

    I learned long ago to just tell her up front what is going on. I don't use household money for my hobbies and over the years she has gotten tired of trying to change me so its working out real well. She even has deals worked out with the kids about who gets what and how to sell off all the other crap.

    Well, give me one of your guns and tell him you sold it to pay for the safe.

    And you couldn't think of saying that was the price before the sale? Or it was discounted as an open box item? Return? Refurbished?

    C'mon, I think you just need to think on your feet better.
