    You know your a gun guy when at work you...

    Maintain trigger discipline on a bottle of windex

    Wish said bottle of windex came in a hicap version with an easy detachable box magazine

    think operation of said bottle of windex would be easier if you were issued a 3 point sling

    Operate the wash sink and spray nozzel by the 4 rules

    have on occasion thought of your manager as the RO

    have mentaly compared a Hard -A** boss to the BATFE

    this is all working in a deli! anyone else got any?

    You want to take your GAU-16 home and you think it is a shame that some have to be dragged to the range for their pistol qual.

    You feel that this month in this year is a 31 day tribute to your favorite pistol.

    ...You work for a place that has a HAZMAT dock.
    ...You are on a first name basis with all the pawn shops and gun stores within 100 miles of your home.
    ...When you walk into the local gunshop with that look in your eye the first employee that spots you coming in gets out the 4477 and the calculator.
    ...When the CIA, FBI, DEA, Homeland Security, State Police, County Mounties, Local Yocals, pivate security... come across a weapon they can't ID so they call you.
    ...When the powder companies are developing a new powder and they send a few kegs for you to you to develop load data for it.
    ...When bullet companies are coming out with a new type, style, configuration of bullet and want you to test it for them.
    ...When someone mentions some kind of abscure caliber and you can name them all and show the person you are talking to what they look like and even tell when the factories quit making them.
    ...When someone mentions a new wildcat cartridge that they want to develop you can tell them from experience what bullet weights work well with that caliber, what the powder charge should be and weather or not they should continue with said project.

    There are four more pages but I forgot them.

    ... when you keep the old CRT monitors because you can install a tactical rail on 'em easier.
    ... you have tritium sights on your optical mouse.
    ... you put a laser on your remote control.
    ... you argue with coworkers whether you use the mouse in an isosceles or Weaver stance.
    ... your keyboard has a fixed blade taped underneath it.
    ... so does your desk.
    ... you try to get the head of the corporation you work for to buy Class III weapons.
    ... you got your dental and medical plans replaced with a free-ammo-for-life plan.

    A discussion turns firearm/ammunition related...and you take from your desk drawer seven examples of ammo for comparison.

    -Your roommate asks you to identify weapons in movies or tv shows based on 1/4 second glimpses of the trigger formation or slide... and you do it.
    -You know that DAO isn't an asian last name.
    -You have a business license to your own corporation, for the sole purpose of buying silencers.
    -You can't seem to set short term or long term goals, but you know exactly what you'll be purchasing and in what order from the gun shop for at least the next 5 years.
    -Your girlfriend knows how to field strip your pistol, and the names of all the parts... even though she'd rather not.
    -You've searched to bible for verses that would justify your carrying a handgun to your christian friends.
    -You know every handgun law in your state, better than most police officers and lawyers.
    -The word "lubricant" has lost all comedic value for you.
    -You could have a half hour debate about your specific ammunition choice based on weight, shape, and power... if you could just find someone willing to argue with you.
    -You spend at least 30 minutes in the morning checking replies on the 6 gun forums you frequent.
    -You have a nicer holster and a shinier pistol for impressing people when Open Carrying, even though the majority of people still just think "guy with gun".
    -Even your gun buddies think your spending fantasies are a little over-the-top.
    -You like the newest coolest most hightech weapons, and you still always feel imature around your father who carries a wheelgun and insists that open sights are the only way to go on his hunting rifle.
    -You've spent much less time actually hunting than you have "clearing" both of the rooms in your apartment.
    -You know the brand of ammo used by a police officer based on the department patch on his shoulder.
    -Your only political interest in the Iraq war is whether a new rifle will be developed becuase of it.
    -The first thing you look for in a new car is if it has a cool compartment to store your pistol (or a future purchase) in.

    I about fell out of my chair laughing at this. I run a Marksmanship Training Unit, a few weeks ago "they" came through for some kind of safety inspection, bunch of Officers and Sr Enlisted... I'm sitting there cleaning my Trap S&W shot gun... got some dirty looks, most "didn't ask", but this old crusty Master Sgt says "is that part of the new or old Marine Corps issue?"

    You know you're a gun guy, when you make a gun wife and know when Ladys night is at the local range ;)

    You're is a contraction of "you are". Your is possessive. You're would be correct in the post above.

    Correct usage: "You're about to drop your gun."

    You know you're a grammar geek when .... your posts are like this one on a gun board.

    That is all, y'all. Carry on.

    "-Your girlfriend knows how to field strip your pistol, and the names of all the parts... even though she'd rather not."

    So true! My girlfriend needs to be talked to so she can fall asleep, so there I am laying with her in bed telling her cute little bedtime stories.

    Then about 6 months ago, I ran out of bedtime stories. Her solution: "Just talk about guns, that will put me to sleep."

    So every night I tell her all about the AR I am building, and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.... handguns I am going to buy next year, and explain to her the pros and cons of different calibers and so forth.

    She falls asleep in 5 minutes flat, but I tend to talk out loud a lot longer than that! :D

    ... any mention of paintball as valid combat experience or weapons handling training makes you grind your teeth and consider tossing the room.:fire:

    ...when you rant more about the ATF than the IRS.
    ...when you have to special order your digital pattern BDU trousers in "your size".
    ...when you have already pre-ordered tickets to Rambo V.
    ...when you have more guns than teeth.
    ...when your hunting dog alerts on liberals.
    ...when you think the U.N. has tampered with your tin foil hat.
    ...when you apply for a visa to Iraq to go "duck hunting".
    ...when you plan on visiting the Army recruiter just as soon as you successfully complete a chin-up and a 30 minute mile.
    ...when you start wishing KelTec would make a smaller "carry" that would fit comfortably in a body cavity.
    ...when you insist ^that^ carry piece be chambered for .45GAP.
