Getting lucky: if you keep spare gun socks in your glove compartment for the same reason you keep condoms in your wallet, you might be a gun nut.

    If you buy holsters for pistols you don't have yet, you may be a gun nut.

    Does buying pistol rugs in bulk count?

    Or have a copy of your C&R in the glove box, just in case.

    I've also been known to count guns, like sheep while trying to fall asleep.

    If you own ammo for calibers that you don't even own guns in yet. :tooth:

    If you have firearms that you've owned over a year, and still haven't gotten around to actually shooting them yet. :tooth:

    ps. *I'm* not guilty of either of these at the moment... but I know people who are. LOL

    If one of your long term goals is to compete with a fella from an internet forum named Wambi, for the "you suck" factor.

    If you still have copies of G & A, SOF, and Gun World dating back to 1989, you may be a gun nut (guilty)...

    You might be a gun nut if :

    You are on first name terms all the employees/owners of every Gun shop/Pawn shop within a 200 mile radius of your home address yet cant remember your second childs middle name....or first name!!

    You can remember the twist rates and barrel lengths of most over the counter rifles but cant remember your wifes birthday..

    You might be a gun nut if :

    You drool every time you see a beautiful double rifle in 450/400 caliber but the largest game in your state is whitetail.

    If you name your dog "Sig" and folks think it's short for "SIG-Sauer."

    If you plan on naming future dogs using firearms manufacturer's names.

    Guilty as charged.
    You might be a gun nut if your LGS sends you a get well card when you are in the hospital (that really happened).

    ...you buy a gun to fit the brass you somehow acquired that doesn't fit any of your current inventory.

    If you see a rifle and think "Man I have a scope that would go great on this"

    If you tell people when you're dating: "I'm really into guns, and I'm never going to get rid of them"

    You get excited when your mom shows interest in a pistol, because it's an excuse to trick one out

    You have a box of "reject holsters"

    You have enough spare AR/1911/10-22/etc parts laying around to almost build another one

    You fore-go buying a new car because you'd rather get gun stuff (guilty)

    Gun laws are very high on your priority list of qualities to look for in areas to live (CCW, AWB, Class III OK, etc)

    People ask you "How many guns do you have?" and it takes you a few minutes to give an answer.

    You were certified to instruct rifle and pistol shooting, as well as coach precision air rifle teams, before you got a driver's license (guilty).

    You buy the perfect gun for your wife, occasionally, and then forget to tell her.

    Shotgunshooter I am guilty of several of those. LOL

    You might be a Gun Nut if your back yard has white pieces of steel suspended here, there and everywhere! Friends ask, "aren't those things hard to mow around?" What the heck are they for? :rotflmao:

    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    If you're on a first name basis with call takers at multiple "mail/phone order" shooting supply companies, you're probably a gun nut

    Jeez, only one year? How about if you are cleaning your gun room and find a firearm that you plain forgot you bought?

    Jeez, I have dreams where this happens to me. Then I have to go and wake up...

    Holland Brake
    Magpul Front sight
    Midwest Ind. Front/Rear Sling Attachments
    Magpul Angled Foregrip
    Surefire X300 Light
    VTac Padded Sling
    JP Ent. VTac Rifle Length Forend
    Aimpoint Micro Red Dot Sight
    GG&G Scout Rail
    GG&G Flip up Rear Sight
    Gasbuster Charging Handle
    Geissele Trigger
    Ergo Grip
    Magpul UBR Stock

    So when you you want you can take a DPMS lower and upper and make this ...
