About Number 44,,,
If it wasn't,,,
AND you have names for them. Such as Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, extra credit points if your names begin with and end with a weekend day....................
You can identify the caliber by the noise it makes.
... caught myself on this when I realized I knew who was shooting .223, .22lr, 7.62x54r, and 7.62x39 at the range. Of course the mosin is easy to identify.
I think there was a Russian handgun that topped the .44 magnum back in 1971 too. I heard that for years and they I heard it wasn't actually more powerful. I couldn't say for sure and I don't remember the exact gun.
Whatever the case there are guns that dwarf the .44 mag now. And Eastwoods S&W .44 mag can't handle the heavy loads used in certain .44 mag guns now like the Ruger models and the Taurus models which are made from cast metal. A Smith will hold up a while but the timing wasn't made to deal with that kind of shaking.
1,2,3 or many, many?
When you get a job at a place that has a Hazardous material (AKA HAZMAT dock)loading dock just for all the powder and primers that you buy.
When the DEA, ATF, ICE, State, County, or city Police call you up and ask about a firearm that they came across and they know you have one or know about it.
When you make up a cartridge board of rare calibers and the firearms historians have never even heard of most of them.
18) The people in your LGS know you by name
Do I get extra points if you know all of the employees by name, have their personal cell phone number, and call before I go to see if they want me to pick up lunch for them? Also you are considered a "friend of the store" and know all of the regular customers by name?
You have lots and lots of centerfire ammo, but plan to buy at least two more cases of Russian before the '14 mid-term elections.
But I am not a gun nut. I might be a gun collector...or a gun aficionado...or a gun enthusiast.....or......
But wasn't commercially available until 1983.
Extra points if its your WORK computer.
I probably could do this if someone told me which four calibers were being shot. Then I'd be able to pick out the 54r for being loudest and .22 for being quietest.
Then .223 for the loud crack, and x39 because of it's thud.
BUT if it was just four people shooting at the range, and I didn't already know which calibers were being shot, I don't know that I'd have been able to ID them just based on the sounds.
Oh, and Bainter- i didn't notice the ammo. Briefly glanced at the rifle though!
A hundred years ago, the term was "gun crank."
Frankly, I prefer "nut"...
I prefer "firearms enthusiast" , but if the shoe fits.....
The rest were good for a couple of chuckles! Thanks Leon... and all those who added! :-}
