You open yor desk drawer to get a pen and can't find one but do find an odd asortment of different caliber bullets, and random shells. That was me last week. Yesterday I gave a double barrel side by side nerf rifle to my nephew at church. His mother was less than pleased.

Your favorite website is world.guns.ru.
You play with your mother's grabbing assist after her major back surgery just because it reminds you of the feeling from your favorite pistol.
You are bored in class (or anywhere), you mime working the bolt and reloading your Mosin-Nagant 1891-30.

Yeah I have that conversation everyday.

when you think about buying lunch and remember that the 5 bucks you are going to spend is 5 bucks worth of ammo or a new gun so you decide to just starve until you get home

You maintain the 4 rules with anything that has a trigger and fires a liquid or projectile

you realize you have only 5500 rounds of .22LR but realize that you need the MATCH ammo so you purchase another 5000 and split it with a buddy.

When you rationalize digging bottles and cans out of trash cans around your cubicle and you have convinced everyone you work with to give you their bottles and can and you explain that it is ammo money. (this works I make about 30 bucks a week extra doing this)

You have 50 - 20 round mil spec Mags for an m1a and you don even like M1s or own one.

I have two ammo cans full of'em

Yep, I carry to the bathroom at 3am ... and it's not even down the hall. It's part of the master bedroom.

You believe that stainless steel guns (along with nickel/chrome plated guns) were soley produced to give you the option of stashing a gun near/in the shower just in case Norman Bates attacks you.

You also justify buying a new gun with the rationale that if you didn't need one, why would they make it?

I was really being facetious about arming up to go to the bathroom. I didn't know people did that! Our master bedroom is on the second story, so I figure there's plenty of time to retrieve my pistol from the nightstand drawer. Anyone trying to break into my house will make some noise, which Holly the chocolate lab will hear and start barking at.

...when detailing your car/truck the guy doing it fills a plastic grocery bag with spent brass from all the nooks and crannies .

...you don't carry a gun to the john , because you keep one in there anyways "just in case" .

... when looking at houses to buy , the first thing you do is decide where the safes and workbench are going .

...you buy the house that's in worst shape because it has the perfect property to put a personal range in .

This is my daughters Davy Cricket rifle. I got it from WalMart. They had a blued gun with black stock at the store for $99 but had to order everything else.

I promptly ordered the stainless rifle with the pink stock, price was around $150. I waited and waited.....nobody called so I went in to check on it, thats when they told me they were out of stock and wouldnt get any more back in until after Christmas......uh oh.

Being the smart guy that I am I bought the blued gun with the black stock for $99. Then I went to the manufacturers website. They sell all the parts and different colored stocks right there....just click and pay and its on the way. The pink stock cost me $35.

So for a total of around $135ish my little girl has a pink gun.....and if she grows out of pink I can put it back to black.
