Do not listen to the naysayers. You know what he will love and it is the shotgun. We are not hunters, but my Dad was and he would have thought that was a very thoughtful gift. I would definitely get it engraved.

If we had the money Fiance would be getting a Benelli for the wedding.  So I say absolutely go for it.

@ShennaB2b:  I come from a family of hunters. I, myself do not hunt and my Fiance only hunts occasionally. However, I see this as being a very thoughtful gift! It’s something totally unique to him. He will love the fact that you got something meaningful to him. Besides what’s he gonna do with a pocket watch. Most people in our generation look at it, then throw it in a drawer. Just think everytime he’s doing the hobbie he loves he will be thinking of you and your thoughtful gift (as well as your wedding day!).

im not a gun person, never even see one and cant imagine ever shooting anything but because its your FI’s thing then i think its a cute gift – why the heck not, its what he loves and he loves you, you love him so have some fun with it

Definitely get him something he will like.  Those kinds of things make the best presents because they will get used.

I say get him the gift you know he’ll love, and I think you know what he’ll love. 🙂

Glad to see you’re going for it! I think it’s a great gift! If it’s so him, he’ll love it, and that’s what matters. I mean, Mr.ND’s big request was a fox pelt (he didn’t get it because we set a spending limit on our gifts). Now, I know nothing says love and marriage to most folks like guns or a dead animal on the wall Wink, but if that’s what the guy wants and it shows him your love, then that’s the best gift!

And remember, you know him and your relationship much more than your family does, so don’t second guess your gift choice (or flower choice, or music choice, etc etc) because they think something else is better for you two. Who knows better than you two?! 🙂

I come from a large family of hunters and I know there is not one guy in my family who wouldn’t love that gift.  I say go for it..he’s the one you want to like it not the rest of your family.

Our wedding was 9 days ago, and if we had the extra I would have purchased the .270 that hubbs has had his eye on for a while. Instead I bought the fishing pole he had also been looking at.

Do it.

Also, shotguns have a really long lifecycle, so it’s definitely a lasting momento!

There’s nothing like shotgun wedding jokes either (I assume you’re both comfortable with such jokes…)
