I know this has been alluded to, but watching movies/TV and counting the shots, from both good and bad guys, and seeing who/if the characters reload when they should? :blush:

Drives everybody I know crazy. They won't watch movies/TV with me anymore... :ph34r:

I picked up a new (to me) puppy(he was a little more than a puppy)

I had him for more than 14 years.

He was a bit smaller than other dogs of his breed, so I suggested "Skeeter.," After about a year and a half, I explained his name to my wife.

He was used to the name by then so he kept it.

It wasn't all THAT bad...in the divorce, I kept the BT99, M1911 .38 Super Commander, and the Southpaw M110MCL .243. (I am right-handed)

Have fun,

Gene

Just as bad as when people never reload in TV or movies, when someone draws their pistol and shoots 3rds then is at slide lock...

Or when they pull trigger on an empty striker fired gun and it keeps clicking the non-existent hammer. Or the fact that nobody in a movie ever keeps a round in their pump shotgun, ensuring you get to hear the slide rack.

I've done close to that, during a stage. Not on purpose, either.

When you go to an expensive training class or the police academy and you keep correcting the instructors that say "clips" for magazines.

I get so aggravated at people over that. I don't know why but it bothers me.

Needless to say I didn't make the cut and got X'd out of the police academy lol. I didn't know how to keep my mouth shut and wasn't afraid to stand up for myself. (Big no no) haha.

The "clip" word is one of my top two gun-related pet peeves (the other one is "automatic" when referring to semi-auto). Jeez. :angry2:

If you ever left the house (not leaving for the range) wearing an inner belt because you can't find your "normal" belt.

The inner belt is the normal belt!

When your friends think going to the basement to reload is code for something since you do it so much.

Actually had a friend ask me what I was really doing.

When someone asks you about your weekend and before you speak you realize they know nothing about USPSA rules and divisions, reloading, AR barrel/upper brands, sights, aftermarket triggers, Glock models, differences between 1911/2011 and CZ's (and Glock), split times, inertia vs. gas operated shotguns, suppressors, quad loading, caddies, dry fire routines... so it takes a LONG time before you know where to start...

When it's trash day and you look in neighbors' recycling bins for large clear plastic pretzel jugs, ice cream tubs, protein powder jugs, and other similar containers to hold large amounts of brass.

I just get em.   Lol.  I'm always finding I need more so when I see them I grab them.   Drives my wife nuts but now she asks before she tosses anything like that.

Baby food jars are great for primers. Hot glue the lid to the bottom of a shelf over your bench and twist the jar into the lid. Saves shelf space.

hahahahhaha, I posted that 11 years ago......

 

You know your a shooter when you shoot your .45 brass until it cracks, then you load it one more time....

 

You know your a shooter if you have ever used spent cases for hearing protection....

Hey Sean. I did not know that. That pic is mine :-)

Several shooting buddies have been saving brass for a while and

finally went all in on a 1050 with a mark 7 with multiple tool heads.
