Wife wanted a break so we headed east to do a little adult gaming. Now for the record I don't care for gambling. However she does so I tagged along.

Best I can figure I'm down a Sig 227. And she is down 3 Taurus, 2 HiPoint pistols, a Glock and a ATI Titan.

It would appear we have different values as to hobbies.

When I left her at the video poker machine she had just drawn into about 1,000 rounds of 9mm target ammunition.

They say you can't put a price on love, I an starting to think they are wrong!!!

I can't stand the thought of gambling! I've never even played a slot machine. I don't play the stock market, either. I do have friends that enjoy gambling, though. Different strokes for different folks! You are a wonderful husband for indulging her! Does she go to the range with you?

I spent a day gambling one time. I got $20 worth of nickels when I walked in, gambled all morning, ate at the buffet, swapped to quarter video poker, gambled until about 6 that night and walked out with the same amount of money I walked in with.

My neighbor likes to gamble. One time he drove to the casino in a $25,000.00 car and came home in $500,000.00 Greyhound bus!

I can sit through a couple dollars of nickel slots, but that's as adventurous as I get. I have other priorities for any "spare" money.

Well you now have some leverage when it comes to buying a new gun or three. Remind her that you have something to show for it and she doesn't.

It sounds like she needs to get better at her hobby

Only time I ever went to Vegas was for the CES convention, in the early eighties. I discovered slot machines. My ex told me I was lucky, I left only the money I had budgeted for "entertainment".

Only when you own your own business, will you know what it is like to gamble!

I have a short cut to the whole gambling experience.


I just take the money and toss it dollar by dollar into the toilet. Oh, it's still gone, but I have my entertainment watching them rooter out the dollars. They get so excited and start grabbing for them. Oh the fun!

I keep praying that I'll win the lottery.

Last night I dreamed that I heard a big voice reverberating through the room. It said " Greg, help me out, buy a ticket"

My wife thinks the casino is fun, I hate it but I indulge her on occasion. I would rather go to the range. She gets mad cause I will agree on the sound to play then I quit and put half away for ammo and just stand and watch. If I am forced to put money in a machine I would rather it be in a video game like Galaxiian or Space invaders. I can get a half hour or so of time wasting for my quarter.

Gambling..... no thanks!

The only gambling I ever really had even the slightest interest in is horse racing. The few times I've been I won just enough on my "shows" to pay for the beer and hot dogs. Basically a free evening out doors, the smell of horse dung wafting through the summer breeze...ah...good times...
