Gun-Related Freudian Slips?

What gun-related freudian slips do you catch yourself saying?

"Yeah...ship it USP 2nd day air, have them leave it at the door if I'm not home"

And my phone prefix is 233 but I say 223... :o

My company makes antennas and base station equipment for the wireless telecom industry; we have our own test facility which is called the range (which just adds to the confusion).

I've said 'caliber' when I meant 'frequency' as in 'hey what caliber are we testing that filter at? 1970 MHz?'

"Does your laptop have a USP port?"

"I'm running windows XD pro on my home machine."

At full service gas station: " I'd like 30 rounds of regular."

At men' clothing store: "Can I see something in a size .44 full metal jacket?"

At waldon books: "Where are the Hi-cap magazines?"

At Star Trek convention: "Do you see the green followers?"

Lurker no more!

Palo Alto is flooded with Porsches. It's quite easy to count 7-10 within a few minutes of leaving the house. Literally. Boxters are prevalent enough to be utterly tedious, and elicit the same regard as a Miata. Bugeye Sprites are MUCH cooler.

Of course, I contribute to the problem myself, but at least I have the decency to drive a 928, which all "true" Porsche afficianados look down their noses at. Something about a water-cooled:confused: V-8:eek: engine in the FRONT:what: of the car, as I understand it. The resale prices reflect this. 928's are comparitively cheap as Porsches go, (And continue to depreciate, unlike the rest of the line.) as "real" Porsche-philes consider it a faux-pas to even acknowledge the car's existence. Almost liberal thinking, really.

Me? I'm a die-hard non-conformist, who delights in enjoying what others do not have, just to be different. But I also know better, as a 928 is a pretty amazing machine, which feels no shame at it's "red-headed stepchild reputation". Therefore I feel pity for all the rest of those brainwashed conformist drones stuck driving around in a car that could be lumped together with the other 12 cars just like it I'll see in the next ten minutes.

"Hah! Look at that. That fool could have had a beautiful 928 for what he spent on that thing! But no, instead he gets to take heart in the knowledge that he's just another obnoxious yuppie with a snotty attitude annoying regular folks while feeling superior at the wheel of yet ANOTHER 1911..."

It gets me every time, without fail. Always when I'm trying to be condescending to those richer than myself. Kinda deflates my inflated self-importance when I do that. :o :rolleyes: ;)

But I must admit that the idea of a twin-turbo .45 is nothing short of intriguing, while simultaneously a little bit confusing...

I'm a computer tech which means I teach remedial computers. About 1/3 of the time, I tell the user to doubletap the icon :o

I guess it's better than: "Um, click 'Network Neighborhood, My Computer then the Recycle Bin in tactical sequence."

Hand_rifle_guy, just tell them you have a Shark and they have a hot rodded Volkswagon:neener: :D How can you not like a well made 160mph car that costs $10,000?

okay, back to guns...since I also get into photography, I take on a few photo projects. Photogs often use the phrase "shooting" referring to photography. If I say "...going to shoot xxxxxxx..." friends pause trying to figure if I mean photograph it or really shoot it.

Something about dialing 1911 instead of 911...

I saw a guy at work reload a nail gun,and w/out thinking I said"nice tactical reload,how many rounds does it hold?":cool:

At first, it was difficult to remember my dorm room number when I moved in about a year ago. But, ever since I taped a little black dot to the bottom left of the number above the door, life has been a whole lot easier.

Now I just look for room .308 :D

I do it with car stuff usually instead of gun stuff. Just the other day, I was pointing out something on my Son's arm to my wife. I told her it was on the passenger side arm.

Hand Rifle Guy,

HEY another 928 afficianado! awesome. i've had two, an '85 5 speed, and i just sold a '91 GT last december to pay for my flight lessons. i really miss the GT. it was Amethyst Metallic. beautiful. anyone who looks down their nose at the 928, will most likely get left in the dust by said 928. out local 928 club's website is (pacific northwest). check out:
mine's the purple one on the dyno, turning in 283hp at the rear wheels!

also check out its a strictly 928 magazine, concieved and published right here in the NW by a bunch of the guys in the photos in the previously posted website. subscribe!

we've been trying to put together a shoot'n'shine, combo car show and firing range session, but can't agree on location yet. if you're ever up in WA, join the email list and let us know, we get together for beers and car talk regularly. you can contact me at if you want more info. take care.

"feeling superior at the wheel of yet ANOTHER 1911..."

Oh I get it. Danggit, 1911 looks so normal I overlooked it.
