    You're a Gun Nut


    You can't remember the plot of the last movie you saw, but you can name the model, caliber and finish of every firearm in the movie.

    You reflexively count the number of shots fired by every weapon in the film, then gripe to your friends when the actors exceed the magazine capacities.

    You watch old WWII movies and can identify and look at all the rifles and handguns but can't remember who stared in the movie or what it was about.

    If, when you watch a WWII movie, you have to get out th' old Garand and 1911 and help John Wayne shoot the Japs and Krauts. Even when he's in the Navy.

    If, while helping John, you've ever actually shot the TV. ("Is this thing loaded?")

    You see pictures of war on T.V. and all you can think about is that you want to be there so you can pick up the BRASS.

    It bothers you more when 007 runs out of ammo than when the BOND girl dies.

    You watch La Femme Nikita just to see the HK MP5s.

    Your only criteria for renting a video is what guns it might have in it.

    While watching the movie "Terminator 2" you have to leave the room in tears and mournful sobs after Arnold Swartzenneger throws the CAR-16 off the moving tractor trailer and it goes bouncing away~.

    Every time you see the finale of the Sam Peckinpa movie "The Wild Bunch" you think to yourself "what a waste of brass!".

    Your friends refuse to see ANY films containing firearms with you.

    When you met your wife's parents for the 1st time you arrived at their house riding a motorcycle and wearing a S&W DA/Auto on your hip.

    You and your new father-in-law go to a gun show on your wedding day.

    Your wife's bridal registry was at the local gun shop.

    You have spent more on guns in the last 6 months than you did on your wife's engagement ring.

    Your fiance didn't want a ring, she wanted an M1 carbine. And, you bought her one.

    You use a lathe to turn a nice ring from the appropriate size case.
    You engrave it with a few hearts and then nickel plate it and add gold inlay. She'll love you for having the "personal" touch, being careful with the family money, and from knowing you'll be able to keep her guns in tiptop shape.

    Have traded the wife's wedding ring for a shotgun, and she let you.

    You take your wife on vacation to a gun show for your 10th Anniversary and she is as excited to go as you are.

    You let your wife go out and blow all kinds of money on junk she'll never use just so she won't gripe when you buy that latest piece you really need for your collection.

    Your mother-in-law asks what new gun junk you want for Christmas this year.

    You remember important family dates based on when you purchased a firearm.

    You build a gun rack in your bedroom and it's closer to you than your wife.

    Your wife tells you that you can't subscribe to any more gun magazines until you do something with all the old ones you're keeping.

    You have Trijicon Night-lights in your bedroom.

    Your teenage daughter's next date is introduced to you while you're sitting at the loading bench cleaning your M-1.

    If half the guests at your daughter's wedding are shooters and their wives or husbands had fun talking.

    Your wife says to buy a gun she would like you to sell one first.

    Your wife wants to wear black leather so you buy her a carry holster.

    Your gun safe cost more then your dining room set.

    Yu get rid of the microwave to make room for the brass tumbler.

    You or your wife do the wash, several spent casings fall out of your rolled-up sleeves.

    It is very common in your household to step on BBs, spent and live primers, and the occassional .22 rimfire with bare feet.

    Your wife often vacuums-up live primers you dropped in the carpet.

    You both enjoy the excitement when she does vacuum.

    You find some live primers laying in the driveway.

    When daughter was growing up hand her boyfriends a 45-70 round and tell them you have lots more where that came from.

    You introduce yourself to your daughter's suitors as "a very good shot" and you have a copy of Guns And Ammo in one hand and are wearing your NRA Life Member hat. A holstered large pistol on your belt is optional.

    After being introduced to the new boyfriend you quote from "Clueless" by saying: "Young man, I own a .45 and a shovel...don't make me have to use either one."

    Your wife/girlfriend starts using Hoppes No. 9 instead of perfume to get your attention.

    Your wife thinks that aura of Hoppies #9 is your favorite after shave.

    You use Hoppes No. 9 as a room or carpet freshener.

    You are asked by a waitress what cologne you are wearing. You just got done cleaning your guns.

    You think a shotgun wedding is what happens when a fellow gets overly fond of his 12 gauge.

    You consider naming your unborn child Winchester.

    You name your first-born boy MAK90.

    You name your first-born girl LadySmith.

    Your kid's huggies come in camo battlepacks.

    Your wife threatened to leave you after finding 400 muddy shotshells soaking in the bathtub for the tenth time.

    omg, that is me! (the movie part)
    I seen BlackHawk Down, and noticed all the times they messed up and showed blanks instead of live.
    Then during We Were Soldiers in the split seconds of the end I counted 2 mosins, numerous SKS, and tons of AK's inthe pile. Also they have nice SKS's all through the battles :)

    And I resent that remark bout having g/f's wear Hoppes, i prefer Outers :mad:

    Btw Doglips, where in Cocoa, Florida to you live? my brother just moved down there last fall.
