Yeah - that's right I had an M-4 carbine tattoed on my arm today......crazy huh? You can even tell that its a Thermold magazine and not US GI - maybe that was a mistake - having a "Thermelt" on my arm......Sorry no pics - see AR-15.com icon for details [:D] .........yep if I wasn't a gun nut before.....I am now.....

.......insist on the right to hang a 20"x30" M16A2 exploded parts schematic in the bedroom of your girlfriend's appartment.

What, you too?................ My only concern about the tattoo is if the average gun enthusiast will be able to tell it apart from a CAR-15 (XM-177/XM-144), Colt Commando, or the M-4 its supposed to be....pretty detailed - but....

You know your a gun nut....... When you collect brass for guns you don't have just in case you might get that calibur some day. When you have mags of guns you don't own, just in case you might get that gun some day. When you can spot every error of guns, guns use, etc, in movies. You own a 10/22 to save money cause you wanna go plinking so often, but end up spending your ammo money on the expensive high caps. When in bed, your closer to a gun than your wife. When you can supply your whole neighborhood with a firearm.

You have ordered so many guns that your next 18 paychecks are already accounted for. Eating is overrated anyway, right Wave? Hehehehe Steven

You might be a gun nut....... 1) If you use Hoppes 9 as cologne. 2) If your daughter's boyfriend refers to you as "the guy always cleaning his guns on the kitchen table". 3)You own a AK variant from each country that produces and exports them. 4)You go to a gun show instead of a family reunion. 5)You go to the family reunion just to ask your soon to be departed uncle who he willed his pre-bans to. 6)You have more money in your truck's gun rack than you do in it's tires. 7)Walmart sporting goods employees already have your ammo sacked up and the "sold out till monday" sign up on the ammo display case when the see you in the store. 8)You buy your ammo bulk from the manufactor. More later.

You notice that every time you look at a digital clock it reads 1:17, 2:19, 2:20, 2:22, 2:23, 2:43, 2:57, 3:03, 3:08, 3:57, 4:04, 4:16, 4:44, 4:58, 5:56 or any of about fifty-odd calibres you instantly recognize. (This one is sort of a trick... :) ) If you make all combinations to locks into things like 223, 357, 380, 308, 243, etc. You practice your draw when walking along a path at work and scare someone (unarmed - like air guitar) You take out your ammo and arrange different rounds in a pretty little row. You are really nuts when you ask your teenage daughter to look at it, so you can explain stopping power to her. If Lake City goes on alert if you're seen driving down Missouri 7, you might be a gunnut. If Federal sends you Christmas cards and the wife Flowers on your Anniversiary, you might be a gunnut. If Sierra goes on double shifts when you place your order, you might be a redneck. When in church, after the collection plate is passed, the usher has to pick out .22 shells you had mixed in with your change, you might be a gunnut. If your primary cubicle decoration at work is your best target groups, you might be a gunnut. If you've removed your HOOTERS calendar and replaced it with a Remington, you might be a gunnut. If your Fajen stock displaced a spotted owl from it's home, you might be a gunnut. When rather than give out business cards, you long ago rationalized it was cheaper to take out a classified ad in Shotgun News. Your tiny classified is noticeable that Shotgun News has to give you a separate listing in their table of contents. Everytime you decide to sell leftover parts from your Garand restoration projects, prices at the GunShow and even at the DCM are affected. Every year you bug your accountant to run an cost/time savings analysis on the possible purchase of Springfield Museum versus collecting Garand variations one at a time. you go to three different gun shows within a month and your excited every single time. you're guns are cleaner than your house/apartment. you have 5 different guns being DROS'd at 3 different FFL dealers. 4 local gun shops know you by name. you're friends with 90%-100% of the employee's at every one of those shops. when you stop in, the ask you questions like "how was work?", "how's the wife and kids", "we're gonna order some food, ya want in?", etc. you can wallpaper your house with old issues of Shotgun News, Gun List, Guns & Ammo, etc... if you're a computer specialist and you have more issues of Shotgun News and Gun List than MacWeek and PCWeek. if you bought 7 or more AK-47's just so you could have different ones from different countries (Bulgarian, Romanian, Russian, Yugoslavian, Egyptian, Chinese, etc.etc. if you're phone number, license plate, extension at work, etc. relates to some kind of bullet caliber...ON PURPOSE. if you have framed targets hanging in your bathroom, hallway, etc. with tight groups that you have shot. if you can read the same issue of SGN/GL/etc. everyday until a new issues comes out.

You get a 1 day suspenson for "excessive lateness" because you have trouble getting up in the morning to go to work... But make it to the Gunshow 1 hour before it opens on Saturday, after driving 50 miles, and stopping for breakfast...

when you're in a wedding and you go home after, take the tux off, go to the gun show even though you didn't have money anyway, then go back home and change back into the tux and go to the reception. people laughed at me when i told them. i was a groomsman btw.
Link Posted: 12/20/2001 10:49:33 PM EDT
When you religiously save all your brass, counting every round fired and policing up every single piece of brass, sometimes spending hours to do so and you don't have a reloader..... When you think of things that you can do without in order to buy that next weapon..... When people at the range look at you funny because you are 20 and you brought more guns to the range than they have in their entire collection...... When the first thing you ask a girl you are interested in is if she is pro-gun..... and scratch her off the list if she says no, no matter how big her tits are..... When you plan ammunition purchases months in advance so that you know when you're going to have to rent a pallet jack.... When you have decided that renting is too much of a hassle and buy a pallet jack..... ......you might be a gun nut.

You might be a gun nut when.... -You realize that you no longer have the ability to measure distance in feet but in yards. -Your gunsafe is within reach of your computer, t.v. and phone. -All of your junk mail is gun related. -The UPS guy sends you hate mail at the same time his chiropracter sends you X-mas cards.

When you sleep with a gun, take a shit with a gun, go to the store with a gun, work on the car with a gun, kill the neighbors cat with a gun[peep]and when you have a gun in every room of the house in all your cars and even one for the dirt bikes!! Not sure if this makes me a gun nut or just a nut? [50]

Your favorite FFL dealer calls you on Friday evening and asks if he can buy four or five thousand rounds of ammo to take to this weekends gun show because U.P.S. didn't deliver on time. (really happened) When asking your boss for a raise you mentally equate it to how many additional rounds of ammo you can buy/shoot every pay period. You wonder why Glade doesn't make an air freshener in "Hoppe's #9 scent" You REALLY believe spent shotgun shells on a string of lights make great X-mas decorations. When your neighbors call, concerned because they HAVEN'T seen you loading/unloading guns from your car/house. You would consider a devorce but are concerned about custody of the pre-bans. When you hear the word MAGAZINE and you first thought is NOT of a periodical. You buy two identical guns; one to shoot and one to keep "New In the Box"

When you date a girl partially because her dad was a Class III Dealer and ran a gun range! I swear it's true! My first teenage love fit this discription to a tee! I got to shoot Class III from time to time, have relatively unlimited ammo availability for my use and free use of the range as well.

Here's another one: How about having your picture in Kimber's Custom Shop for getting 6 of your buddies to buy Kimber pistols and having the entire Kimber Sales & Marketing Department identify you in a crowd of 1,000s of people at the NRA Convention??? This happened to me about 2-3 years ago when the NRA Convention was in Charlotte, NC.

Keep coming up with new excusses to pick up new firearms or accessories. Worst, keep coming with new ways to smuggle them in the house.
