Are you a gun nut?

Postby AlanM » Thu, 16 Mar 2017 07:30:27

How about if you are Gun Nut?

You Might Be A Gun Nut.....

-If You've ever dabbed a little Hoppe's on your neck before going on a date...

-If you bought checkering tools, checkered all your gunstocks and are now starting on the bedposts...

-If you cannot really recall just how many guns you own...

-Surplus ammunition suppliers call you to see if there was anything you were looking for...

-If you bought a gun from a gunshop, only to realize you used to own it years ago...

-If you've ever shot out a 1911 barrel.........

-If you save brass and have a case tumbler, but don't reload...

-If you ever stripped the paint off of your car and then blued it

-If you've ever bought ammo for a caliber you didn't shoot, thinking that someday you might own a gun in that caliber...

-If your computer passwords are gun related...

-If your five-year-old can detail strip and fully reassemble an M-1 Garand............

-If you take your guns out of the safe and handle them, just so you can wipe them down before going to bed...

-If your local gunsmith calls you for obsolete parts...


The above is just the start of post #7 in this thread:

Man, that's funny as all get out, I can't say I've done the first one of these that I'm quoting from your list below, but I might have been guilty of the second one:

Nah..... it's just that when bullets start flying sideways everybody decides the 1911's a hopelessly inaccurate firearm and buys a 9mm with less recoil.

Gun-crazy? Me? I'd say the gun-crazy ones are the ones that don’t HAVE one.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

Saw that happen at the range with a woman shooting a .22 at a target five yards away and hitting my target fifteen yards away. :doh:

While I consider myself a strong 2A advocate, more than an official gun nut, I find some of those do apply to me, lol.

That's when you grab your stuff and leave. Better to cut practice short than to have someone else's practice cut you short. I've left on a few occasions.

Well while she was shooting a .22, I was shooting a .45 so it wasn't hard to tell whose shots were which.
