In summary, to each his own, and good for you(or me) if you can afford things some others can't. Don't judge, just be happy that for the time being we have alot of people with the same interests in the shooting sport. It seams like every generation our numbers shrink.
I agree with everything you said, except one thing....I can't necessarily afford the things I have, but I have good credit.
Not all my guns are anywhere near high-dollar setups. I don't own 1 single NF or Swaro scope. I've never paid over $1000 for a piece of glass in my life. Don't mean I wish I couldn't. Don't mean I don't have good stuff (for me).
However, my guns, and other toys are in a sense, like my kids (if I had any). I work hard for them, they're mine, I paid for them, and I don't want someone else taking them away from me, or getting their grubby hands on them and selling them b/c they want to spite me. Maybe that is a better example of why I think pre-nups are good ideas. It not only benefits me, it benefits her. I'm sure she has items that she doesn't ever want to have to sell either, so a pre-nup is beneficial to both involved. Atleast, that's how I feel about it.
And also, there is the rare chance these days, that you meet the right woman. Settle down, stay happily married the rest of your life. In which case, the pre-nup was pointless, but it's always good to have that peace of mine.
