Hi,

My name is Tool, and I'm addicted to guns....

Well, not really, but this seemed appropriate for this forum's first post

Tool, you are not alone.

There is a 12 step program for us gunaholics...
1) Buy guns
2) Buy ammo
3) Use up
4) Repeat

x3

As there is no cure for gunaholism, the aforementioned 12-step program simply helps alleviate symptoms and nervous tics.

I think the addiction is not in shooting them, but rather learning about the history etc, collecting them and changing them around as anybody does with their hobby, be it cars, planes, animals.

The other FUN thing about guns is its a right guaranteed by our constitution that can't be INFRINGED on.

I'm addicted to building FALs and AKs . ARs bore me, and I'm sick to death of people referring to their "AR builds." Every time, I want to ask "Were batteries included?"

for a first timer even an AR is tricky, I remember mine, pins, nuts, WOW......I went slow.

Moving on up as tools progress and paychecks accordingly.

Your sins have been accepted (there is nothing to forgive). Go forward say ten hail mary's and shoot ten boxes of ammo.

Wrong. You should never use up your ammo.

You should use half, then replace the whole...

For example, you have 1000 rounds of rifle ammo: you should shoot 500, and buy another 1000.

My name is Tool, and I stop magazines from being considered 'detachable'.

My name is Toolbox_X, and I help guns have detachable magazines.

Whoa! Necro-post.

I can say that not a lot has changed in three years, as far as this post is concerned.
