    You log: Seller, Purchase date, Purchase location, S/N, Condition, and Purchase amount into an 'inventory' binder kept in your gun safe!

    You have dreams about working up loads for your entire collection and then wake up crying because your reloading area isn't big enough.

    ...you reach into your pocket and find a couple of bullets of different calibers mixed up with the change.

    ... your supervisor finds a "slug" on the floor and comes to you to find out what caliber it is.
     
  10. . . . when you spend more time on TFF than talking to your wife.

    . . . when you see a handgun on a TV program and can immediately identify both the make and the caliber, and then tell your wife just to annoy her. ;)

    . . . when you have trouble keeping your checkbook straight, but can calculate bullet trajectories in your head.

    . . . when you consider it the height of a good time when you get to shoot a rifle that leaves your shoulder sore for a week.

    :D;):p

    On your 25th wedding anniversary you go out to buy your wife a nice present and come home with a new shotgun (for yourself) and a potted plant from the grocery store for her. :D:D:D

    This isn't from experience...never made it to 25.

    Ouch! She said just that the other day....

    So far, I can tick almost every box including rounds in the change, and yes, having my favourite gunshop on speed dial. I dont even have to say who it is, the owner, Joe, recognises my voice! :)

    You are waiting on Hoppe's No. 9 to be a scent for aftershave.

    You have special insurence policies on firearms, and not your wife's jewelery.

    You judge the success of your tax return by how many rounds/firearms you can buy with it.

    You plan vacations with "unplanned" visits to gun shows that you "didn't know were happening"
