You Know You're A Shooter When....

Recommended Posts

When you worked around power equipment all your life but you can hear better than your 4year Lab because his big flappy ears did not protect his hearing like the vet said they would. = I have to tell my dog when someone is at the door.

When anytime you heat something in the microwave, you see how efficiently you can get dressed, pack lunch, go pee, etc. before the "par time" is up. And when there's 15 seconds or more left, you congratulate yourself for having enough time to shoot a field course too!

:D Ok I confess to the Microwave thing, ;) but do you put your hands on the counter wait for the end and try to open the door before the bep stops?

You know you're a shooter when:

The UPS guy hates you.

Your loading bench can double as a tornado shelter.

You don't have to give your credit card number to Montana Gold because they have it memorized.

The items on your reloading bench have a greater dollar value than your 401k.

There's as much empty brass on the shelf in your laundry room as there is on your loading bench.

You know to the minute how long it takes to drive to Quincy, Illinois.

Your wife knows the difference between a main spring and a recoil spring.

You can field strip a 1911 in less time than it takes to walk to the mail box.

When your non shooting girlfriend knows which model of gun you shoot, which division you shoot it in, and all the assecories that you want in order to finally finish it out.

When your girlfriends mom buys you primers for your birthday.

When your grandma has your picture from Front Site cut out and magnetted to the fridge.

When work doesnt even call you for overtime on the weekends anymore, cuz they know you'll be shooting.

The guys at work know how much your next gun is gonna cost due to the amount of overtime you have been working recently.

The UPS guy stops at the end of the driveway, cuz he gets scared everytime he comes to the door and hears gunshots in the backyard.

When you use basketball hoops and your niece's sandbox (turtle shaped) as props for your backyard field courses.

Your pastor knows which weekends you will be in church for the a.m. service, and which clubs shoot that sunday, meaning you will only be there for night service.

...when dinner and the movies equals chips, salsa, and hosercam.com.

...when you ask the guy at the Sprint store if there is anything in kydex available for your new cell phone.

...when the answering of the above mentioned cell phone basically amounts to a draw at the first ring.

Haven't read the newest replies so I don't know if this is a repeat or not but...

when everything else you spend money on is converted to how many rounds you could have reloaded instead. ('Damn, I could have made 250 rounds instead of buying those baby vitamins. He looks healthy anyway.') ;):lol:

When your WIFE who doen't even shoot has ear plugs and eyes in her purse. :lol::lol:

Thats when you know your "IN".

My wife has earplugs and eyes for herself and my daughter in the car at all times. She also is more like to be wearing a shooting shirt around town than I am!

And she doesn't shoot.

--- The UPS guy calls the local police because he thinks that a delivery of thousands of bullets is suspicious.

(This happened to a local shooter - nothing bad happened though)

When you suggest the name Ithaca for the kitten you rescued from the skeet range.

When you refer to skeet and trap as cross-training.

When you sweep the floor around the reloading bench and find 17 primers and save them for the next reloading session.

When you don't blink an eye at spending $150 for 2500 bullets but scream robbery at $150 for a new tire for the car.

You don't have to give your credit card number to Montana Gold, Brownells, Dillon, Cabela's and many others because they have it memorized.

Rob,

Anyone who only orders 1k bullets at a time deserves a little harassment!

I still remember the day my father came into my ofice and suggested that I sign personally for a particular delivery to our warehouse. Seems we needed the forklift to unload the shotgun ammo that was on the trailer in the yard. It was ONLY about 50-60 cases, I still don't know wht the big deal was.

There's always at least one set of the yellow EAR plugs that come out of the dryer with clean clothes.

I did laundry this morning ... ended up having to pull out an unfired 9mm round from the bottom of the washer after it was done. :rolleyes:

You might be a shooter (and a parent) if when your dropping the kids off at school, they shout out in unison, " Kids ready! Stand by! Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep." as they pile out the door.

"Your spouse thinks you are looking at porn in your gun room you are there so much"... you have a GUN ROOM! lol i have a buddy that has one :) thats a tell tale sign for sure

Your ups man asks what's in the box.... you reply bullets! he just stares at you....

You've put a 25 yard range in your b ack yard so you have more time to shoot, reload and shoot some more.

Your basement has a dry fire "range" in it including props.

Your favorite burbon is Bullit burbon because it sounds like "bullet"

when someone says "alcohol tobacco and Firearms" you realize you have a gun in one hand cigar in the ashtray and drink in the other..... (right flex ;) )

You've fallen asleep dry firing....

you've held one gun so much you can feel every bit of it in your hand just from memory.

you know the wieght of the trigger on each of your guns.

you own more holsters than you do clothes.

your closet contains more guns than they have available for issue at your county sharrif's office.

people you never met call you asking gun advise, and reloading data!

your gun collection is worth as much as your house!

your local dealer gets Beretta promotional items, and thinks of you when he has left overs.

you get calls from the local gun shop when they get something different in on consignment.

local shop gets a special order for a gun they call you and offer a finders fee for locating it...

all transfers are "no charge" because you've kept them in business through bad times. They also deliver when yoru stuck!

your neighbors after calling the police twice from the shooting realize the police are shooting WITH you!

You have atleast once walked into a shop that was going out of business, and bought all that was left.... (now proud owner of the merchandise from sam's sport shop)

you referr basketball, and martial arts as cross training for the serious sports (uspsa, and IDPA)

you have went on a diet, not for better sex, to be more healthy or look better... but so you could shoot faster!!!!!

you have air gunned approaching vehicles while on long trips.

you have pictures of your 5 yr old niece shooting an M4 carbine!

your friends look for where your gun is because they KNOW you have atleast one.

Your friends refuse to see ANY films containing firearms with you.

You consider concealed carry any time you shop for clothes (and you are a very happy & lucky person if your significant other considers that too, when they shop for you :D )

- you find empty cases and loose rounds in the washing machine after your jeans are washed

Those are personal issues of mine,

but I need to add:

When you get your father-in-law a gift certificate to Smith and Wesson so he can get back into shooting, and he gives you one in return to keep you shooting... (as if I needed a reason)

Just realized this one for me. You load up your fingers with postage stamps as if you are pasting targets, when mailing out your bills.
