    Hey y'all. So I was clearing my gun the other day and I stuck my finger in the empty breech to verify that it wasn't loaded (as usual), and was thinking to myself: 'Where on earth did I pick up that habit?' Turns out it was here on GT several years ago - when someone wiser than me said something to the effect of: 'If you can stick your finger in there, then you know it ain't loaded'. As a bonus, you can also check your condition in total darkness with confidence.

    I figured it might be time to start a thread about good habits, advice, tips, etc. that you have learned from this forum and its members over the years. Got any?

    I've changed in an untold number of ways since joining GT.

    1. I stopped using a hammer and punch to remove the pins in my Glocks.
    2. I no longer talk to the cops ... ever.
    3. I stopped paying taxes. The Constitution doesn't say that I have to.
    4. Now I know to always lie about how well I can shoot. For example, since joining GT I can now pick up any pistol and shoot 1in groups off hand, at ANY range.
    5. No matter what the OP is posting about, it is acceptable to misunderstand, overreact, and call them stupid.
    6. I miss WalterGA and BigSlick.

    Never show your receipt at Walmart without loudly carrying on about the BOR being trampled, illegal search and seizure, and comparing Walmart to nazi Germany. In fact, don't show it at all.
     
  4. I don't clean my guns anymore because they are ALWAYS LOADED, and since it's dangerous to clean loaded guns and all that....

    Oh, and I used to think that Abraham Lincoln was a pretty swell fella for freeing the slaves and uniting the country, but I've since learned that he's actually history's greatest monster.

    :rofl:

    I had that debate here once. As I'm sure you know, the actual rule is "Assume every gun is loaded until you prove otherwise. If it weren't for the last part it would be impossible to clean or disassemble a firearm.

    I learned that my trigger finger is now called a booger hook.
    I learned my shotgun is a shotty.
    I also learned my rifle is called a boom stick and it sucks because it's not a Colt.

    Every woman I meet. I tickle her feet to check the teeth before moving my Bravia in.

    I have, quite humbly, learned that:

    Golden Corral is one of the premier restaurants in the country;

    A new thread on which caliber to shoot bears with being posted at least three times a week is perfectly normal, even admirable;

    The story of the jacked-up teef will never die; and

    The legacy of 2BB will go on in our hearts forever.

    I've learned that a gun that comes in a cardboard box is no good.

    I've learned that people are too lazy to clean weapons after shooting corrosive ammo.

    I stopped eating at all chain resturants because they all suck. :rofl:
    I admit all the guys in the relaoding forum taught me how to reload with out killing myself. :supergrin:

    Got a lot of help in the Tech section on PC's.

    Learned there is a heck of a lot of ex-Mil pilots and Vets here we can start our own Army and Air Wing.:patriot:
