When you cut your meals down to 1 a day to afford the next rifle, handgun, gun part, accessory, optic, ammo, reloading kit, another AR lower, lathe, mill, lead molds, hulls, brass, primes, powders, reloaders, and more books and only leave the house to go to the range, lgs, or work. Story of my life.

When your mind's only denomination for money is how many Glocks you can buy with it.

"They want 20 glocks for that car? No way!"

When you go-to Walmart/gun shop and actually see the ammo you need and do the 2yo "pee-pee" dance because you are so excited!

(and then try to collect yourself to remain by the ammo case AND find a Walmart clerk to help you).

I did this Tuesday!

When your husband asks you to look up things you want to do while in Hawaii for vacation...and the first thing you look up is gun ranges in Kona. And then you do laundry and pack...bathing suit, capris, tshirts, sandals, 511's, boots, California Gun Talk and Glock Perfection tshirts, belt, hat...you get the idea. Still deciding what else I need. We leave early, early Saturday morning...LOL

And when your wife ask you, "Who are you talking too, you scream out NOBODY!!!"LoL

Maybe thats just mee

When you drive home from work and hit every walmart along the way.

When you first discover hickock45's videos on youtube and watch every single one of them (along with other gun videos)... Then you want to buy the gun he's shooting even though you told yourself you were all set on guns.

This one's good, or bad?

I actually bought a G23 because I was given approx. 1500 rounds of HP Federal.

When your pros and cons of buying a gatling gun are:

Pros
Its a ******* gatling gun
History
show off to my friends (friends couldn't care less about guns)
for the future
ALL of the utility
My 19th century collection of significant firearms will never be complete without a gatling gun; and that is important

Cons
I would have to sell my first born son

And whenever you read it you say; "It's 6:1, so I have to buy it."

You know you're addicted to guns when you are online and a gun for sale catches your eye because it's so unique and rare - then you recall you already own 2 just like it! Worse if you already BOUGHT it... then recall that you already own 2 just like it.
