You've all heard of the "You might be a gun nut if..." list, right? Well, I was doing some yard work this weekend when I suddenly realized I was a lost-case gun nut (as if that's a bad thing [:D]). You know you're a gun nut if: You practice proper barrel, trigger, and magazine-swapping discipline when using a cordless drill. [img]http://www.makita.com/res_cordless/images/9_6_volt_cordless/6226dwe_l.jpg[/img] Yeah, baby! Edited to reflect the type of drill I actually use. It's not an exact match, but close enough. I sure do want one of those high-powered, drill-through-kevlar-and-armor, hi-capacity, post-ban assault DeWalts, though!

I just got one of those when I moved, because putting my desk together was a PITA without one. I did notice I'd keep my finger off the trigger, and kept it pointed down while I wasn't drilling away with it!

Hell, I find myself even holding it with both hands, barrel down, SMG-style, when stooping over to get where I'm going. My wife thinks I'm [whacko] Guilty as charged! [:D]

If it's a 3/8" chuck, it's lame. Gotta be 1/2". [img]http://www.shop-for-cordless-drills.com/images/Milwaukee/pistolgrip_hammerdrill_2bat14v.jpg[/img] and...

Me too, basically when I handle anything with a mechnaism similar to a trigger I handle it like a firearm.
