    If you find ammunition of multiple calibers in your truck...and decide to leave it for a rainy day.
    If you know what all the extra gun parts are on your work bench by weapon.
    If you know caliber's of weapons by model numbers.
    If you know what your next gun is going to be before you have fired the one you just bought.
    If you have to look at a gun forum with your first cup of coffee in the morning

    Hrm, don't own a truck, and am too CDO to leave things rolling around in my car.
    Know all my spare parts, although it's a small collection, so that's not too difficult.
    Would "have weapons organized by caliber, largest to smallest" be gun nut or just CDO?
    Yup, have yet to take my latest two to the range, and am already eyeing another.
    How about before my morning coffee? (Specifically, once before I leave for work, then again with my coffee when I get to work.)

    *CDO: It's like OCD, but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

    ...If your eyes glaze over and you start to salivate when you see an actual STG-44.

    If you wonder why anyone would miss one of their guns - the only reason to sell one of your guns is because you have 2 weeks left to live and you can't get ammo for it any longer.

    If you say good morning to your "night stand" pistol when you get up.
    If you fondle your car gun while you're driving.
    If you find "accessories" for your pistol that you just HAVE to HAVE.
    When you start making your own holsters. (Yes I did...)

    OH, OH...............

    ...or if you brag about the range targets that your kids have push pinned to their bedroom wall but won't allow them to hang pictures of thier science fair first place prize being awarded by the president of the united states so they don't put needless holes in the walls...or if you can tell people how many rounds of each caliber and grain weight divided by manufacturer you have in your safe, but can't remember your wedding anniversary or how many years you've been married...or if you missed the birth of your child, so you could watch the last five minutes of last seasons Top Shot...

    Ouch - now that one stings a bit.

    If you buy a gun that is a duplicate of one you already have because the original one might break someday. (Extra points awarded if it's a Glock.)
    If your wife/girlfriend starts using Hoppes No. 9 instead of perfume to get your attention.
    If you've ever photographed your entire gun collection, but "insurance purposes" never entered your mind.

    If you bought your daughter a pink 9mm before a tricycle.......
    Have the discussion around the dinner table "Why proper trigger press is more important than vegetables"
    Because 6 combat shotguns is just not enough!

    Nazi storm (assault)rifle. The phrase was more for propaganda than anything. Some things just don't change.:bluelaugh:

    The caption says this is actually a STG-43 but essentially the same.

    If you stock up ammo for a gun you don't own yet.
    If you like a gun so much you buy another of the same.
    If 40000 rounds isn't enough.
    If you try to buy back guns you have sold.

    If you've ever used Hoppe's #9...as cologne.
