    You drive around with a gun case in the truck just in case you find something you have to buy during your day.

    Found myself doing this today. I might have an issue :D

    ..while working in the yard you hear a full auto burst off in the distant hills you automatically cup your ears to try and fix the location while simultaniously thinking to yourself: "Man, that doesn't sound too far away. I wonder if i could find that guy if he would let me run a clip through his toy? Or better yet, maybe he let me shoot my rifles regularly at his private shooting range too?"

    Actually did this this last weekend while I was building fence. :)

    You have every gun shop and pawn shop within a 100 mile radius on speed dial :).

    If you have two copies of your 03 in your wallet, because one might not be enough.

    If you have your credit card # memorized, solely due to gun related purchases.

    You start buying duplicates of guns you already own, "just in case".

    ...while watching a movie, after every scene with a gun your fiance pauses the movie, turns to you, and says "Ok, what did they do wrong this time?"

    You might be a gun nut if all the foregoing make perfect sense, but you haven't got time to enjoy other people's perspectives, because you're looking for the best deals of brass, dies, primers, powder, and bullets for a caliber you'll have a use for if you win the auction you put a bid in on last evening—and have checked seven times thus far this afternoon.

    ...you are guilty of training future gun nuts.

    I was the recipient of a coffee can full of spent .22 lr brass from a "I'm 5 almost 6 " year old.

    In return I gave her another brick of .22lr ammo. I still think I came out way ahead on the deal. ;)

    You research every available gunsmith for your precious 1911. You weigh their experience and notoriety. You contemplate wait times and shipping methods. You search gun boards looking for feedback on your chosen smith. After months of nervous speculation you make your choice and finally ship off your gun for work.

    For your family's health care you open the phone book and choose the one closest to the house.

    ...you look at your coffe table's wood patterns and think "This piece right here will make some fine new grips."

    ...you name you son Gage.

    ...you name your daughter Coltina.

    ...you call your daughter not Tina, not Ina, but Colty.

    ...you pay your monthly bills and go "Dang, that could have been a SKS, an AK, etc."

    ...you drive your wife nuts by continuelly pausing your Friday night movie in order to make or gaze upon a gun used in an action sequence while trying to educate her at the same time "See, that there is an AK-47, and that is a Beretta..."

    ...you brake down, buy a new coffee table for your 'wife's birthday', and ship part of the old one to Hakan.

    You find a smoken good deal on powder/brass/dies even though you don't have a gun that goes with those components.

    ... You take a job that has a HAZMAT placard and a doc just so you can order powder in bulk.

    ...The FBI/DEA/BATF has your number on speed dial in case they come across a gun that they know you know about.

    ...Every time your friends go on vacation they call you and say they found and old model(insert model make style here) and ask if they should buy it for you. :)
