I have a couple hundred once fired spent brass casings from a couple of firing range visits where I rented a .40 caliber handgun. Now I feel that I NEED to pick out and buy a .40 caliber handgun so I can reload and shoot those spent casings I have.

...you dab Hoppes no.9 behind your ears before a date.

...you own magazines for a gun you do not own.

...your wife keeps tampons in a speed loader.

...you have ever opened the safe and said, "I don't remember buying one of those."

...you dream of a Nugent/Ventura presidential candidacy.

Ok, keep it rolling.

Thursday, UPS will deliver 250 rounds of 8mm to my door.

I have no 8mm rifle.

However I fully plan to buy an 8mm rifle in the future, so I figured I would order ammo.

You get stopped by POPO and you have to take out 4 boxes of ammo from the glove box to get the registration

A shoulder holster rig doubles as suspenders

You look a 5 gal. buckets at the super center and try to calculate how much ammo it would hold

You have a used target on your wall

A "smiley face" has to be made with bullit holes

You have tried to make a smiley face with bullit holes

You have something you have shot sitting on you desk

You look at other peoples trash for "targets"

People bring you stuff to shoot up

You steal the kids dart gun to see how accurate it is

You know what gun was used in Heat

Your browser favorites have more gun sites then p0rn

You shop for a new car and the storage bins look like good places to hide ammo and firearms

You look at something in the distance and automaticly calculate bullit drop

You wear various guns arund the house (concealed), and ask roommates if you're printing.

You think that the range is ideal for a first date "Hey, if she likes it she's worthwhile, and and if she doesn't, at least I had fun!"

You can name nearly every single gun ever used in any movie...and what modifications they've had to look 'Hollywoodized"...and if you can't, you search them out.

When out and about, first you scope out the exits, concealment and cover, and THEN you scope out the women.

I just bought out a fellow managers reloading equipment and supplies. I got a massive amount of .308 brass in the deal. I do not currently own a .308 firearm. I have convinced the wife that having all that .308 brass ( and bullets btw) and no boom-stick for it is an abomination that must be rectified by my birthday next month.

Your a gun nut when the ups man is dropping ammo at your house almost daily.
Can't pass a gun store without going in.
Can't get to the gun safe cause there is ammo, reloading equipment in the way.
