    I guess most of us are guilty of on and make yourself smile and say...oo nga no!;f ever seriously thought about dabbing on a little Hoppe's #9 before going out on a date. buy some checkering tools, you checker all your gun stocks, and then start on the bedposts. cannot recall how many firearms you own. buy a gun that's just like that other gun you have except the barrel is 1/2" shorter (or longer). buy a gun at a shop only to find out you used to own it a couple of years ago. know 12 different names for one caliber of cartridge. ever clean a gun that hasn't been shot in the week since you cleaned it last. consider naming your unborn child Winchester or Remington. purchased two Glocks and two Sigs just to see which brand was better. strip all the paint off our car and refinish it with cold blue. ever bought ammo in a caliber for which you have no gun, because you thought some day you MIGHT get a gun in that caliber.
    ...your collection of American Rifleman back issues, Gun Digests and reloading manuals cost you a premium the last time you moved. have more than one gun that "kills on both ends." buy high capacity magazines for a gun you have not bought yet. take your guns out of the safe each night and handle them, just so you can wipe them off before putting them away.
    ...your mother-in-law asks what new gun junk you want for Christmas this year. see TV footage of the war in Bosnia and wish you were there to pick up the brass. keep a loaded gun hidden in every room in the house, including the bathroom and kitchen, "just in case," and then keep one on you at all times just in case someone breaks in while you're in the hallway. named your pocket pistol "Little Guy" and your 12 gauge "Big Jake." own reloading dies for calibers that you do not shoot. understand Smith & Wesson's model numbers. ever bought two brands of the same weight and type of bullet, just to see if one "shot better." keep a collection of different cartridges at your place of work as a "conversation piece." take your wife on vacation to a gun show for your 10th Anniversary and she is as excited to go as you are. ever had to explain, "It's NOT the same gun, it's a variation!" and your new father-in-law go to a gun show on your wedding day. have life memberships in more than one shooting organization.
    ...watching The Lion King gives you the itch for a .470 Nitro Express.
    ... while watching the movie Terminator 2, you have to leave the room in tears and mournful sobs after Arnold Schwartzenneger throws the CAR-16 off the moving tractor trailer and it goes bouncing away. go to three different gun shows within a month and you're excited every single time.
    ...your guns are cleaner than your residence.
    ...your mom gives you a new Springfield Armory .308 sniper rifle for Christmas.
    ...four local gun shops know you by name.'re friends with 90% of the employee's at all the local gun shops. identify the gun on the cover of Dillons Blue Press before you even notice the girl. have more gunpowder stashed in your home than your local sporting goods store has on hand. can wallpaper your house with old issues of Shotgun News, Gun List, Guns & Ammo, etc. trimmed down 100 10mm cases to form .357 Sig brass before commercial supplies of this brass were available.
    ...the custom door lock pulls on your Jeep are .223 Rem cases and the gear shift knob is a .50 BMG.
    ...your girl friend thinks that aura of Hoppes #9 is your favorite after shave. have guns in your safe that you can't, for the life of you, remember how you came by.

    She has asked me these questions numerous times, "What does that gun have that I don't have?", Why do you have to take it out of the safe and fondle it all the time? Why can't you do that to me? etc, etc.

    My replies, "It does not get jealous if I handle other guns lying next to it. It is always quiet and it is always there when I need it" :) :) :)
