She's seen all of them. About a 1/4 of them are hers.

Your kidding... right? My wife likes to go through the safe(s) and tell me which are hers or which should be hers.

Wife told me I couldn't buy anymore unless I got rid of some. So I gave some to her, now we are all good.

She does not ask about my collection and I don’t ask about her purse collection…. So that is my story anyways…

Probably half. She doesn't care, but then, she doesn't care. And since a chunk of mine are milsurps and she can't tell the difference between a Mauser and a Mosin, so they all look alike. Even though she's maybe seen them all she really doesn't know how many there are.

I am divorced but when I was married my wife had no idea how many guns I had. I didn't hide them from her or lie about how many I had. She simply had no interest at all in guns and didn't seem to care how many I had.

When I bought a new gun I could show her the same gun over and over, she would have no idea.
The last time I took my wife shooting she put a hole through the back of my truck into the cab with a 22 revolver

I don't hide any from her. All I have to do is start talking about them and she'll completely tune me out. All she knows is that it takes up a lot of space.

I'm glad to hear your truck was the only victim.
When my kids were old enough I started taking them with me to the range. In all the times we went shooting my wife never once came along, not even to watch the kids shoot. She didn't hate guns and she wasn't afraid of them but they just did not interest her at all.

At a certain number, it's easy to forget about some them.
I hid one purchase once. She was pretty pissed. Last few pieces bought have actually been her idea.

She knows about the ones she bought for me and doesn't care about the rest. She's supportive but has no interest in guns.

^^^^^^ This. Also, some guns that started out mine have been claimed by dear wife after she shot them.

Interestingly, she does NOT like 9 mm or 45 acp or any autoloading handgun other than 22 lr, however, her fave pistol is a gp 100 shooting full 357 loads. Go figure I guess..

My wife knows I have a bunch but she hasn't counted them. I don't hide them from her. One day I got them all out and covered the living room floor with them (it was a big living room). She was surprised as it was somewhere north of 70 at that time. I'd say that number has gone down at least 50% through attrition since then.

I feel sorry for every henpecked husband who feels compelled to tell his wife about everything he does and buys.

I feel sorry for every wife who is married to an adult child she has to keep tabs on, and who allows himself to be henpecked.

Zero. We lost 'em all in an unfortunate boating accident.

My wife has been informed of all purchases, but doesn't remember most. Every time she sees in the safe I get questions regarding one or two. Acts as though she has never seen them before.

All of them & each time I bring a new one home she gets just as pissed as the last. Lol, sorry babe but I have a problem and the only cure is just to get the ones on my list and a few other that are for a deal I couldn't pass on.

Somewhere in between these is a happy medium I think.

My wife knows about my guns, and she is supportive of my shooting.

Funny story...I had never seen the John Wick movies, so we ordered them from NetFlix. During one scene in the first one, Wick was loading up a Glock, and my wife says, "That's a Glock, isn't it? Looks just like yours."

She knows I have them. She's unaware of how many. I haven't purchased any in a long time. I'm just ratholeing them.

This is exactly what I was thinking when I read the title LOL. Without looking in all the safes I’m sure I would forget a couple. I know exactly where all six home defense firearms are hidden though.

Most of my really nice guns were purchased by my wife. She has excellent taste.
