I guess most of us are guilty of these...read on and make yourself smile and say...oo nga no!;f

...you ever seriously thought about dabbing on a little Hoppe's #9 before going out on a date.
...you buy some checkering tools, you checker all your gun stocks, and then start on the bedposts.
...you cannot recall how many firearms you own.
...you buy a gun that's just like that other gun you have except the barrel is 1/2" shorter (or longer).
...you buy a gun at a shop only to find out you used to own it a couple of years ago.
...you know 12 different names for one caliber of cartridge.
...you ever clean a gun that hasn't been shot in the week since you cleaned it last.
...you consider naming your unborn child Winchester or Remington.
...you purchased two Glocks and two Sigs just to see which brand was better.
...you strip all the paint off our car and refinish it with cold blue.
...you 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.
...you have more than one gun that "kills on both ends."
...you buy high capacity magazines for a gun you have not bought yet.
...you 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.
...you see TV footage of the war in Bosnia and wish you were there to pick up the brass.
...you 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.
...you named your pocket pistol "Little Guy" and your 12 gauge "Big Jake."
...you own reloading dies for calibers that you do not shoot.
...you understand Smith & Wesson's model numbers.
...you ever bought two brands of the same weight and type of bullet, just to see if one "shot better."
...you keep a collection of different cartridges at your place of work as a "conversation piece."
...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 ever had to explain, "It's NOT the same gun, it's a variation!"
...you and your new father-in-law go to a gun show on your wedding day.
...you 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.
...you 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.
...you're friends with 90% of the employee's at all the local gun shops.
...you identify the gun on the cover of Dillons Blue Press before you even notice the girl.
...you have more gunpowder stashed in your home than your local sporting goods store has on hand.
...you can wallpaper your house with old issues of Shotgun News, Gun List, Guns & Ammo, etc.
...you 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.
...you have guns in your safe that you can't, for the life of you, remember how you came by.
;a ;a ;a

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" :) :) :)
