    Ok... so I had a relapse of my addiction and bought me a .38 super today.

    My wife want's to know if there is a support group for spouses of us 1911 Addicts.

    Any info I can pass along to her... may or may not get passed along.

    Don't whine ....just give her $1,000 in cash & tell her to go shopping when she wants !..... ( or make a date with her to go pick out her birthday or xmas present ...at the car dealer she prefers - for whatever she likes to drive ./....my wife prefers Lexus NX F Sport model - and she's worth it and 2019's are coming in soon... ) ...and buy it for her ( not a family car ...)...

    I like to point out that my stuff consumes a lot less space then her sewing materials, which currently line the walls of her craft room and have spilled into the basement. I have pointed out that if she stopped buying fabric today, she would still have enough to make an entirely new wardrobe every year for the remainder of her life. And that when she passes on, nobody's going to want to buy a bunch of bins of fabric scraps. She wants to be cremated, and I've told her more than once I am going to do it Viking style if she goes first; back-yard funeral pyre on top of all her sewing possessions.

    Also, turns out you can spend $7K on a high end sewing machine just as quickly as a high end 1911. Having said the above, she has raised my kids and generally put up with me over the years, so when another fabric box arrives at the door, I usually pretend I didn't notice.

    Yes. I believe it's called Tiffiny & Co. They're located on Fifth Avenue in NYC.

    I've walked past it quite a few times. It's not too far from me. They use a therapy technique involving rare stones and precious metals. It seems to be working quite well. Women walk in sad. Women walk out happy. The only side effect is that they develop a fondness for an odd shade of blue/green.

    I believe that they make some portable therapy devices that can be worn around the finger or neck.

    I’m surprised you’d even consider a group for them when most of them do our best to keep them in the dark on gun purchases.

    My wife looking in the safe: “Where did this one come from?”
    Me: “Honey that ones been in there forever!”
