Rifle in Hands

I only wish that husband  becomes an addict to a rifle and not to a horse race. I know it sounds odd but I find it more appealing whenever I see men holding a rifle in their hands like my favorite television series that I watch everyday. The leading actor Coco Martin, who plays the dual role, as an armed bandit and a soldier, used to hold a rifle and he looks very handsome  to me. If husband becomes an addict to this, buying rifle scopes would cost him less than losing the horse race bet over and over again.
