...you start to systematically get rid of your long guns so that you can get more pistols. Yeah, it's happening. The side by side shotgun is on deck to leave the nest and I'm not sad about it one bit. There is just too much on the list that I want.

It's just a shame that I don't have more hours in the day to go shoot... But then again, there are a lot of hours in the day. :D

Yup, this is true. Or you wonder why producers use cocking noises as exclamation marks. You know what I mean, guy pulls out a gun and points it at someone and says "Gimme all your money... *cocking noise* NOW!" Why would you point the gun at the guy if you didn't have a round chambered? Then again, if it's dumb I'm sure someone has seen it on TV and actually done it.

...you buy another safe just for the handguns.

...you have so many DROS's going, you forget about one and have to pay again after 30 days.

...you have slept with your favorite .44 magnum inside your sleeping bag while camping in bear country.
...you can read the "secret" Nazi production code stamps on old Mausers, Lugers and P-38s without using a reference book.
...you can also read the Makarov stamps, even if they are in Russian, Bulgarian or Chinese.
