    I cant claim this as I copied it from SD uk forum;

    The Wifes Logic !!
    Had a conversation with the wife earlier about shooting and it went something like this :

    You spend money on your shooting don't you?

    Me: Yes

    How many times a week do you go?

    Usually about 3

    How much does it cost in diesel and ammo each time?

    Me: Difficult to say depends where I go but for sake of argument say £15 each time?

    (This is where it gets scary !)

    And how long have you been going out 3 times a week?

    About 15 years, I suppose

    So at £15 a time 3 times a week which puts your spending in one year, approximately £2500…correct?

    I suppose that would be about right.

    If in 1 year you spend £2500, not accounting for inflation, the past
    20 years puts your spending at approx £50,000, correct?


    Do you know that if you didn't go shooting so much , that money could have been put in a savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

    Do you go shooting?


    Where's your Ferrari?

    Well the ending was a twist
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
    Rule 8: Be sure that the barrel is clear from obstructions before shooting.

    My most important rule: HAVE FUN!
