you might be a gun nut if...

you've ever answered the door in fatigues, combat boots, a .45 on your hip, and an AK on your back.....and your not in any military service

you love the smell of freshly blasted gun powder in the morning

Burt from Tremors is your hero

you measure rooms in your house in incraments of 50 caliber ammo cans

you currently have a stockpile over 4,000 rounds or more in more than three different calibers.....and you don't own a gun store

you bought another gun just so your friends could go shooting with you

you bought another gun so the ones you have won't be lonely

you decided you needed that gun more than you thought you needed money to eat on

Can you guys think of some more? (and i know there is a site with them already on it, I googled it after I posted, these I came up with on my own)

All the rest were pretty standard, to be a gun nut you have to own 100+ guns and never shoot any of them.

Guilty!

I have actually done this. In fact, I have done ot more than once, and have done it with other gear/tackle, etc.

or...

..."If you own more than one gun that has never been fired"

or

"have names for your guns"

or " if you go to the sporting goods store to buy sneakers for your kid, and come home without any new shoes, but you do a brand new 12 gauge!

You might be a gun nut if you have ever told someone "hey, don't throw that away, I could shoot at it!"

You convinced the wife to let you spend money on a new gun safe by claiming you were worried about foundation damage from the weight of all the guns in the current one and wanted to distribute it more evenly.

You know to be friends with the UPS person if you don't want to end up carrying 20,000 rounds into the house by yourself.

You have your FFL on speed dial.

If someone asks how many guns you own, you have to stop and mentally count them out.

Half the pictures of you that exist have some sort of firearm in them.

...you save milk jugs and two liter bottles because they blow up real good.

...you have the number to order Tanerite on speed dial.

...if you've ever had to say to your wife "honey, can I use the oven tonight to cure this finish?"

...you have a box of holsters, slings and grips that you have no idea what firearm they are from.

You have an icon on your desktop that hot links to "Ammo Oracle"

In your favorite places, there is a folder titled 'Shooting' which has 6 sub folders containing over 50 links.

You buy ammo for guns you dont own yet as incentive to buy them soon.

You have tens of thousands of shell casings in presorted bucket in the garage, but you dont reload, although you plan to start some day.

You buy a rifle scope at a good price knowing that you will eventually have a rifle to use it on.

A technical forum at ARFCOM is your home page

you've spent more time with your guns than you do with your wife and kids

you refer to your guns as "my other family"

YOU HAVE PORN WITH GUNS IN IT!

you have more than five gun related peices of clothing

The door stops in your house are ammo crates!

The posters in your shop are of guns, not hot women!

Your change jar has loose ammo in it!

There's more ammo in the house than food!

beside guilty of alot of the above, how about:

You have too many gun safes that putting them in one room would effect the function of one room so they are spread out in three rooms....time for a bigger house, not for the kids but for the guns.

Oh man, too many of these ring true...we need a list so i can print it out and take it to work.

Actually about 5 of 'em, I'm gonna get around to shooting them one day, I would probably have to take them out of the shipping boxes first though


You might be a gun nut if you have ever told someone "hey, don't throw that away, I could shoot at it!" Guilty

If someone asks how many guns you own, you have to stop and mentally count them out. and then get confused and give up because you really don't know.

Your change jar has loose ammo in it! oh yeah, don't forget about finding loose ammo in the washing machine either





Here is mine:

You have ever been denied access to a military installation due to the 500 or so pieces of empty brass laying loose in the bed of your truck (had to clean it out before they would let me through the gate)

...You leave work early so you can get the UPS package from Midway off the front porch before your wife gets home.

You field strip and clean them for fun.

You dont feel right if there is not a gun within arms length at all times.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 12:16:49 AM EDT
you own a suppressor and live in Washington , where you can't legally use it
you bought land in another state so you could own NFA weapons
you wrote a letter to ATF tech branch, and got a reply back
your reloading bench is in your living room
you religiously check the EE and sturmgewehr.com daily, so you don't miss any good deals
when you do miss a good deal, you're depressed for a week and can't get it out of your mind
you have no interest in C&R's, but got a C&R anyway for the Midway and Brownells discounts
you bought an HK P7 after learning they were discontinued, even though you had never shot one
you own a $2000 custom 1911 but carry a Glock
you own a firearm that cost more than your car


I may be guilty of all the above

You go to flush the urinal and realise that the flush handle has an M4 profile.
