    ...AmmoMan & CheaperThanDirt call You to restock Them...

    You have enough arms & ammo so that even Gen. Patton and his entire 3rd Army would worry about taking you on...

    Amen Brother!

    I read through all of these and began raising my hand for those that struck home. After awhile I just left my hand up. They're hilarious.

    The one I am most proud of is being approached by total strangers (especially young people) as being an expert with great knowledge to impart. That's when I feel really glad to be a gun nut.

    If you have ever done a Bible study in Psalms based on handgun calibers...and found it really interesting.

    Well, wifey can't find it anyway! One night the neigborhood mountain lion showed up just after she let our dog loose for a run. Wifey was wanting my Colt .357 and couldn't find it--until she asked our 10 y/o son. He knew where the gun was! (Yes, he's a good boy and doesn't bother it unless mom or dad are there with him).

    So many of these posts apply to me it's a bit scary...:eek:

    You plan on ammo purchases even though you're not exactly sure how much you have in that caliber already. (yes, I'm guilty :scrutiny:)

    Friends talk about purchasing some entry level/low end piece of gear and you pooh pooh their wasting the money and hand them the exact same piece of gear that YOU already wasted your money buying. (guilty, again :rolleyes:)

    Yep...

    That does give the ol' ego a boost, hey?

    "Could you help me sight in this rifle of my Grandpa's?" (Turned out I couldn't--the 'scope was misaligned or somehow bunged up; advised him to take it to a gunsmith, further advised him to never let Grandpa's rifle out of the family. But at least I could tell him that it clearly was NOT him that was missing the target so consistently.)

    "This is like an SKS only the shells are bigger, and boy, does it kick." Me--"Sounds like a Mosin-Nagant 7.62x54R." (Glance over at the rifle--not too long, no bayonet) "Is that the Model 38?" (It was.)

    Then the kids learned that I was happy to accept any and all empty brass, and they spent the rest of Dad's range session scurrying around behind the firing line, collecting it for me. I thanked them profusely. Life is good.

    "I've always had this!"

    You're allowed one gun for self protection (a 6" Python) in the house which turns out to be asexual and reproduces 47 children, one, an EBR is the black sheep of the family.:evil:
    "Oh, I've had this for years" automatically answers any questions about unfamiliar firearm.:evil:

    ......you get mad when people call a 30-06 a high powered rifle
    ......you get irritated during horror movies because no one has a ccw
    ......if you have less than 1,000 rounds in any caliber you are running low on ammo
    ......you refuse to travel to states with crappy gun laws
    ......you have a zombie rifle
    .... you have 3 bottles of windex in your house that you have never used to clean windows
    ....all of your bath towels smell like CLP
    ....you think its funny when people only buy one box of ammo at a time for deer season
    .....you're worried about a ban, and are stocking up for when it happens
    .....You think any store that doesn't have 7.62x54r, 7.5x55swiss, 7.62x25, and .577 tyrannosaur in stock has a terrible ammo selection.
    .....you're more worried about ammo than gas prices rising.
    ....you know what a mall ninja is
    ..... you are reading this thread

    Hehe...nice ones Eric!!


    You have a multi-tabbed Excel spreadsheet to keep track of you firearms and ammunition :eek:

    You think an original packing crate with 10 unissued SKS's inside would make a great piece of furniture

    You have more Q-tips in your range bag than in your bathroom

    You contemplate the awesome assortment of gun cleaning instruments while at the dentist

    You're a ...

    You start planning a 31-30 wildcat to fill the performance gap between your 30-30 and your 32 Special.

    You have guns chambered for cartridges so obscure they're not listed in Cartridges of the World or, if they are found in The Handbook of Cartridge Conversions, the listed dimensions are entirely wrong.

    You load 44 Specials to higher velocities than you load 44 Magnums because your S&W M29 needs to be babied.

    You don't know whether or not your 44 Magnum revolver will actually work with store bought ammo.

    You have at least two examples of all your favorite guns in case the one you actually shoot wears out.

    You hunt rabbits with a 375 H&H.

    You have a 375 H&H because it can be loaded down for rabbits while the newer "improved" 375s don't like lite loads.

    You don't consider the 458 Winchester to be a "magnum" because it has a smaller case than any other cartridge in its class.

    You know the difference between a 357 Maximum and a 357 SuperMag.

    You have a Ruger P89 chambered in 7.65 mm Parabellum. (30 Luger)

    When you buy a gun the first thing you do it take it apart and put it back together for no real reason.

    The sign on your front lawn doesn't say; "Keep off the Grass".


    It says; "The occupant of this dwelling owns a firearm and is willing and able to use it. Have a nice day".

    You might be a gun nut if... your family has given up buying you shirts for Christmas and just asks what firearm you need next.

    Can I play too?

    ...If you have a checking account separate from the household account strictly for firearm-related expenses.

    ...If you laugh out loud when someone asks you if they need to replace their 1911 barrel after a couple thousand rounds.

    ...If the young guys at the local gun shop stop talking to customers when you walk in because they don't want you to correct them.


    You know you are taking reloading too seriously if...

    ...You ever went to the range and there was so much brass to pick up that you didn't have time to shoot.

    ...You find spent primers in the treads of more than one pair of your shoes.

    ...You ask the doctor to check your lead levels at your annual checkup.


    Guilty as charged on all counts.
