My girlfriend doesn't really care as long as I spend time with her. She even wants to try it so that's a bonus

Mine is totally ok with it!

She even more ok with it since she started tagging along to take picture.

Heck! Some of the guys know her as "Mrs Deadpool" and some know me as "the photographers boyfriend"

Hehe for all thous "my GF doesn't mind". I wish you repeat your words, after you change status of your GF to wife...
My limit is 2 games per month, but every time I planning to go for event, I can hear same song " You not spending enough time with me and kids ". It is kind of hit in my family. But as long, as I have that song on million other reasons, I don't care too much.

Just as long as I do what ever with her when she asks.
And hell, I came home one day from work to find her staring at my M4 only to tell me "You've got a crack in that crappy ABS body"
She also knows almost every external part of my gun haha. I pull any piece out and she can name what it is.
I feel so lucky =P
Haha, I'm in a similar boat.

I'm not allowed to buy Cansoft, ABS mags or the like. She said don't buy cheap guns and gear so you only have to replace it once in a blue moon. I like the way she thinks.

Mine tolerates it, lol she knows I love it though and has no problems with me going to a game or picking up an item here or there..

Can't get her into it enough to learn the parts though, I'm not sure she knew the difference between my AK and my M4..

Same here, I am only allowed to buy metal bodies, must buy quality parts. It is acceptable to break something by hitting Azathoth with it, unless it was cheap, then I gotta figure out some way to fund the replacement.

She even pushes me to play games; "You've spent -that- much money on guns and gear, you -will- play games, is there a game this weekend? Have you signed up already?"
