    When you join the NRA, GOA and other pro-freedom groups. You join the ranks of responsible gun owners that realize that we are locked in a fight to the death that would no longer have us own anything we currently do if they had their way. You must be pro-active in fighting for our collective and individual rights if you really want to be no longer considered a noob. It took me a short while to realize this, but the money I spend towards the NRA-ILA or other good efforts is money well spent. Consider it "maintenance" for your firearms. :)

    You are no longer a newb when you realize the "pretty RED ones" are not always 12ga shells, and that you cannot get 17 shots out of a 6-gun without reloading, no matter what John Wayne did in that movie you watched.

    Some things you really don't decide for yourself. One is not really an expert until others call him an expert. One is not a curmudgeon until others call him a curmudgeon. One stops being a "newbe" when others with experience start respecting his judgment and treat him as a "peer."

    Like many things, that's an imperfect formula. But I tend to care less for one's self declarations than for the assessments of him by others who I respect.
