...when you force your wife to learn the difference between an M4, A2 (rifle) and your C8A1gery just so she can keep up with the conversation about what you "need" to buy. ...when you buy AR mags only because you do not have one of that manufacturer and have no intention of every using it because it is part of the "mag collection".

When the first thing you think about when getting divorced is "Who can I trust to sell my AR's to for $1 with equal buyback"
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 11:32:24 AM EDT
Ok, not only in College, but how about every time your Professors or peers say something anti-gun you HAVE to go buy an optic or magazine or ammo? Yeah, I'd say I'm hooked.

All my rifles are female (I haven't told my wife that). While I haven't gone so far as to name them, I always refer to them as "she" when speaking to buddies about my ARs.

My "problem" is that I'm hispanic, and in Spanish, objects are assigned a gender. So, pistols (semis) are female (love my Kimber!!), but rifles are male. For those who care, shotguns are female, and revolvers are male. And my guns have names...
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 7:54:54 PM EDT
ROFL about measuring the price of things in terms of AR's. I am more of a total gun guy so I think: $50 = M-44 $100 = CZ-52 $200 = Mauser Rifle $350 = Springfield Mil-Spec 1911

I don’t remember where I found this, it might have been here on arf.com, saved it for occasions just like this though. Best regards, J You might own an AR-15 if… 1. You think 80 grains is a heavy bullet 2. You think that flashlights and lasers are a good idea on a rifle. 3. When someone mentions close quarters weapon you think...rifle. 4. You feel comfortable with having a "stoner" in your house. 5. You think a .30-'06 is a big game cartrige. 6. You don't think much of Col. Jeff Cooper's opinions. 7. You don't think much of poodles either. 8. Your rifle's sexual orientation is determined by a muzzle device. 9. Your rifle has a sexual orientation. 10. You are okay with your rifle going "sprong" everytime you shoot it. 11. When someone says "spacegun" you don't think of a phaser. 12. You call the bolt handle on a Mauser a "forward assist" 13. You know who Eugene Stoner was. 14. When the wife says you need new furniture, you log onto armalite.com. 15. You look at your 03A3 wondering how to fit a pistol grip onto it. 16. You like the smell of CLP more than the smell of Hoppe's 9. 17. When someone says "get a real gun", you start thinking about an AR-10. 18. When the clip pings out of the Garand, you think "You call that a sproinnngg?"

1 When you have loose ammo bowls on the coffee table, bathroom and on the washing machine. 2 When you have to take your wifes car if you are going to Massachusets. 3 When you 14 year old daughters idea of adding some color to her room is a Calvary Arms Carbine in pink. 4 When your less understanding friends refer to your house as the compound.

lol. When we moved to our new house my wife said "This could be your office" and I responded by saying "We could make this the computer room / armory." She thought I was joking.[:D] Here is another one. .....when your family asks what you want for Christmas and you respond with "A gift certificate from Bushmaster, Midway and membership at the local gun range."

...you cuss to yourself when the guy who is sending your next upper includes extra parts. Because you know that "leftover parts" means "the next upper". Bastard! The cycle never ends. Good thread!
