my girlfriends have always had a "*rolls eyes* boys and their toys" attitude about it.

Ya, i had to introduce the hobby very slowly, piece by piece, and she doesn't want to see pics, guns, gear or anything let alone mention the price of the gear and guns.
But she likes it more that my other hobby which is having fun with subaru's.

My wife is pretty supportive and knows it's just something that I do. Sometimes she thinks that I could better spend my Saturday with someone else (Her) though. I introduced her to target shooting with a bolt action and now she's a better shot than me!

Will not invite her to a game though, it''s my man/buddy time and that will never change.

Wife - Stop shooting that thing in the house, your scaring the dogs.

You don't look at how many shoes are in the closet (over 300) and I won't look at what you have in the basement.

Well The GF really doesn't mind as long as rent, car and groceries are paid for....Well my habit for wanting to acquire a new gun every week seems to spark the occasional argument but we manage to work it out. I have however got her into the hobby and purchused some gear and guns for her to use, so that has made it easier .

My woman is ok with my guns... She'll just doesn't want to fire any of them because she fears she will get sucked into this world... I don't blame her, the world is safer this way, she's part native and part viking, she can throw knives and axes with astonishing accuracy, I've seen her scalp a melon with ruthless efficiency, she also wears blood splattered high heels that look like this picture and LOVES Hello Kitty... and she's a mom... HOWEVER, I am happy to report she's a pacifist and makes me a sandwich every day. She's also really good at putting gearboxes together which, I guess is her quirk.

My girlfriend seems totally fine with it, but I can't help but feel incredibly guilty every time I buy something airsoft related... I'm a cheap-ass who's definately in the wrong hobby (or maybe country).
