    Whenever you talk about a garand rifle you are obligated to mimic the PING sound.

    You see SPAM that says BMG music, and you wonder what Browning machine guns have to do with music.

    You see a phone number, and see how many gun model numbers are in it.

    Anyone anywhere near you says "gun", and you have to get into the conversation.

    People say things like, "Ask him, he's the gun nut."

    You state you are a "Firearms Enthusiast", not a "gun nut".

    You are carrying your concealed handgun while walking your daughter down the isle at the church on her wedding day and also at the reception.
    I am and I did.

    Some that have to do with po-lice

    You can tell what kind of gun it is from the butt sticking out of a cop's holster.

    You know where and generally what type(s) the LEO's holdout gun(s) are.

    If you spend more time talking guns on the web rather than shooting them at the range! :D :D

    You know firearms by their model numbers from their catalogs!

    You wait for the digital clock to display "3:57".

    instead of setting your alarm for 6 o'clock in the morning you set it for 5:56.

    as soon as you walk into a gun store, the owner pulls out the yellow form.

    when someone asks the salesman a question about a firearm, he refers them to you

    (both happened to me at Dunham's, when I helped my buddy select a Mosin M38)

    friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends call you over to identify old rifles. and you can. (yup.. that's a Columbian contract Madsen. blah blah last bolt action, blah blah blah)

    You see an object and describe the distance by what gun you could hit it with. “That’s beyond Garand range†or “that’s within range of the 442â€.

    You know you're a gun geek;

    If you know all the dialogue to the "Dirty Harry" and "Death Wish" movies.

    Pshaw...how about: "You're best man at a wedding where the entire male contingent makes a point of concealing two pistols apiece."

    (The bride had a 442 in a garter rig.)

    :D

    If you ever bought a gun, because you already had a nice holster you wanted to use...

    ...and you also have a list of what you own by caliber, manufacturer, date of manufacture, action type, etc in Excel.

    Feeling constantly irked by living at #257 ... when just one digit changed would mean living at #357!!:p

    Looking at everyday kitchen items and considering how they might be of use on the reload bench.

    Automatically counting EVERY shot fired in movies ... to assess whether capacities genuine or not.

    When everyone else has quit the range - you stay on to ensure you have ALL the useful brass left behind .... in YOUR possession!!:evil:

    When, in polite conversation with a stranger ... you dangle ''carrots'' to see if he'll bite .. and talk guns and shooting.

    Trying to spot the ''anti's'' so as to be able to try some ''conversion'' discourse.

    And the Preacher is packing during that wedding :p

    I have mine broken down by caliber, action, price, and logistics. :neener:

    When you know the CATALOG PAGE NUMBER... :uhoh:

    If the first word you think of when you hear the word "Skunk" is "Tactical" :evil:

    When your significant other says they are going to get you something "special" and you immediately think you are getting a revolver in 38 Special...

    Bwhaha! Oh so true! Tho often for me its a rimfire and like as not, one of those FTF's .... it then lives in pocket until when finally trashed, the bullet lube has collected all sorts of pocket lint ... and is probably no longer even seated straight!!:p :D

    ...if when watching an action movie and there are 20 guys shooting at each other you instantly recognize what kind of gun everybody's shooting.
