    You just might find all your primers dumped into one box too!

    Wifey has only offered to help by letting me have a bit of space in MY garage for my reloading room. and by saying "You don't really need all those Bullets do you?" She actually comes up with surprise suggestions from time to time like "Look at that nice work bench, wouldn't it work for you reloading?" Other than that she stays away from the reloading operation. I am waiting for the day when she decides to surprise me by reorganizing my primers by dumping them all in one of her little Tupperware containers to save room for me. (Look Honey, doesn't that look better?)

    My wife stays away from my reloading stuff. Its all in its own safe and she knows not to open it. She doesnt really care for guns (doesnt hate them, just doesnt enjoy them like we all do), so she just stays away from all of it, except her shotgun by the bed.

    I have given my wife one of the emergency keys to my pistol safe and in there is the combination to the rifle safe and instructions for opening it. I have also shown her how to open the rifle safe in case something happens to me and she needs to get into it.

    I'm fortunate that my wife gives me my "space". When we moved to Oregon she bought me a "Tough Shed" (a stick built nice 12x18 shed). When I'm in there she wil only open the door and stand outside, unless I invite her in. I never told her to do that, she just figgered that was my shed and she had no reason to be there...

    I have invited her in on several occasions, but she will stand in the door to talk to me until invited in. BTW; she likes the smell of my shop, the gun oils and cleaners, the solvents and the general "Manly Man" smells...

    What a gal!

    I told my bride of 43 years that so long as her butt fits one of these that she was welcome.

    Now 43 years ago we were on a coed softball team, 35 years ago we were on a coed golf league, and three coed bowling teams. Yes, we competed against each other but the main reason was that we like being around each other.

    The wife of a friend of mine thought that she would help her dear hubby clean up some of his stuff and put a nice shiny coat of wax on his box turkey call.

    I would be happy to have Ms. Mad help me at the reloading bench.
    That brass isn't going to trim itself :rolleyes:.
