Ever have this happen?

I was going to buy a custom rifle on here and the little lady was telling me no I can't and after arguing about it she broke down and told me she already ordered The same caliber custom rifle for me. I should probably buy a lotto ticket

    I have had that happen to me before but it wasnt with a custom rifle haha. You argue about it because she says no...and then she gets mad because she has to tell you the surprise. Its a win win situation as I see it. You did your job of pushing her buttons and you got rewarded with a custom rifle!

    I'm not so sure this is a good thing. I would say Catch 22 at best. Sure she bought you a great toy, but now she knows the actual cost of these guns

    I think the quote goes "I pray when I die that my wife doesn't sell my firearms for what I told her I paid for them"
