Post the answer to my question and then pose your own gun-related question in the same format (HDYKW...?).

When you find yourself saying, "Hey! I forgot I had that!".

Lately the only reason the collection hasn't grown is I haven't come across anything I really want. I broke that dry streak last month though, I have a Ruger Vaquero on order :D

edit: I should add that my father in law recently had to buy a gun safe just for his pieces that he doesn't shoot. Still doesn't qualify as 'to many guns' though *grin*

When your friend arrives at your door his tac vest, with his rifle, shotgun & pistol, sporting a massive grin and is shouting "They're HERE!!! They're ACTUALLY HERE!!!

HDYKW....it's time to reload?

When you have to take out a second mortgage to replenish your supply of .45ACP.

HDYK when you're addicted to revolvers? Well let's see, there are several aspects of the question that simply must be defined first. What is an addiction? Who defines "addiction". And no Sarah, we won't be defining "revolver" for you, the answer would damage you.

But, just for purposes of this discussion, let's just say that if you have more revolvers than long guns, you may have a problem.

Now then: How do you know when you cannot buy a safe that's big enough?

Because anything large enough to contain an ICBM isn't a safe, it's a silo.

HDYKW...it's time to stop reloading you own ammo?

Temporarily, it's because you just ran out of brass, bullets, powder, or primers. :neener:

HKYKW.....It's time for a bigger safe?

Shadow 7D

Oh, now that's easy, it's time for a larger safe when you have calculated the square footage require for access with a full length rifle and factored in door swing, and discovered that you need a larger safes in the middle isle, as the smaller models are just not an efficient use of space anymore.

Or you go to close the door and have to use a come-along to get the last inch.
Or you can't open it without something falling out and injuring you like JellyJar's bedroom...

How do you know it's time to give up on safes and go all in for a gunroom addition to your house? (man cave included, ok so it could be a woman cave so long as it's not in pink)

You know you have too many guns if guns are actually the reason behind your financial problems. You know that I'm right when you end up selling most of them and you are BARELY financial stable, but only because you sold them. Don't ask how I know :(

When it takes you longer to find everything you need to change your set-up than it does to crank out 1,000 rounds.

How do you know when it's time to change your concealed carry wardrobe? When you can tell from looking at the outside of the clothes what pistol you carry with which ensemble

When you're looking down the business end of a Taurus, held by an irate Taurus owner. OR
When you put on white cotton gloves before drawing in self-defense.

MistWolf

How do you know a Glock isn't for you? When you realize the plastic just won't take a nice patina as it ages

How do you know you paid too much for a gun? When the guy behind the counter is on the phone booking a safari in seven countries and four continents before you make it out the door

DRYHUMOR

When you could sell a few off and buy a new Harley, but decide you wouldn't have to sell as many to buy a new Triumph.

HDYKW you need to do something with the ammo left over from guns you sold off years ago but still hold onto just in case you come across another one in that caliber.

CB900F
October 2, 2010, 08:19 PM
When the brass begins to grow green fur.

In retrospect: HDYK a Glock isn't for you? When you first set hand on one & it feels obscene.

I do know that if I sold a few guns, it'd be to buy a real motorcycle. Something like a Ducati, rather than a showpiece.

How do you know when this thread's reached it's term limit?

HDYKW...it's time to move to another state? Whe you live in Illinois, where residents aren't allowed to carry concealed. And it also negates my being able to contribute to the CC threads on High Road.

When you have to sign your .22 single shot out from the police station after signing an affidavit that your only intention is to shoot a bullseye target under police supervision. You'd like to shoot more, but the bar-coded & microchipped .22 rounds are $10 a piece.

HDYKW...your cleaning regimen is a bit excessive?

Shadow 7D
