    Maths for Firearms owners

    The number of firearms a man should have can be defined as f+1 where f is the number of firearms a man currently has.

    The total number of firearms a man can have can be defined as d- 1 where d is the point at which the wife starts talking divorce if another firearm is added to f.
    DAF, Angus_A, Toby and 2 others like this.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    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

    I would say the d should be at least +1, certainly not -1

    My wife has no Idea how many Firearms (F) I have.

    Actually she has no Idea how many Firearm Safes (FS) I have either, except for the one she can plainly see of course.

    To balance this equation out I have no idea how many Shoes (S) or Outfits (O) she has.

    So in my case the equation should read F + FS = S + O, where F + FS is directly proportional to S + O give or take a few in favour of F + FS of course

    BTW
    Unlike S + O, It doesn't matter if I take the same Firearms to the range two days in a row and no matter which Firearm I choose I never have to worry if my arse looks fat in it.

    Cheers
    Pete

    And therein lies "The word of the Lord."

    No argument at all.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    I had to give @TimeRider a key when she got her license. The good thing was it was a good excuse for F + 2. It did mean I needed to farm out a couple to the brother-in-laws safe to fit the extra 2 in.

    Fat arses on the range are not a good look Pete, you need to take more interest in fashion!

    My wife's just discovered we have one more than she thought we had.
    Too my surprise there was no drama - but now I wonder what she's bought recently that I don't know about.

    What's the equation if there's no-one to say no or keep count?
