    If your reloading equipment is worth more than your household appliances including flat screen TV's

    If most of your friends were met at the gun range

    Whenever you go the grocery or similar store, you make sure to go down the aisle with the magazine rack to peruse the gun mags...pun intended.

    When you buy dies for a caliber you don't have; and then buy the gun to fit the dies because you have dies for it.

    For the first time, your LGS was "in the red" one month. The same month work sent you overseas for 30 days.

    Here's some I am guilty of.

    If you have to move ammo to fit another person into your vehicle.
    If you overhear someone talking about how awesome a gun in a video game is, you start talking about yours and what you have on it, and noone realizes your talking about the one in your safe not on the game.

    If someone says clip, you interject and say no its a magazine, and their not talking about guns.
    If your local police department calls you because they need a rifle they don't have so their officers can become familiar with them. (It was my AK, they wanted their officers to be able to pick em up and run em if in a prolonged gun fight.)

    If you meet people and become friends by saying "hey maybe you should join me at the range next week"

    If American Rifleman comes and you have to work, you are suddenly sick for the day.

    If you can tell what someone is carrying by the shape of the grip in their holster.

    If everyone in your neighborhood gives you a wide berth when you come out to do yard work.

    If the most valuable thing in your name is your rifle.

    If theres a gun rack in your car, I have even seen one in a prius.

    If you have a safe built into your vehicle just in case you want to put a gun or ammo in it.

    When going on a trip, you drive because its easier than checking in your arsenal at the airport.

    If you carry everything in your left hand but nothing in your right hand just in case.

    When the range officer looks at you carrying in three guns and asks if your taking it easy today.

    When your local gun shop knows your first name and you go behind the counter to look at guns so they don't have to hand them too you.

    When you go to the cigar shop and everyone asks if you went to the range because your wearing a baseball cap.

    When you have more guns in your car than the state police do in theirs.

    When at Camp Atterbury for rifle practice, the Army brings less ammo than you do.

    When you go to the range and become the range officer for the day.

    When you see a guy with a shoulder bag and instead of calling it a murse, you wonder if theres a Kel-Tec in it.

    When the scope on your rifle costs more than your fiancee's engagement ring. (this one is my buddies)

    When noone asks if its a gun in your pocket or if your happy to see them because they know theres a gun there.

    Its funny that you say that. It does seem that most gun enthusiasts drive pickups, Jeeps, or SUVs of some kind. But we have a Nissan Leaf and my wife has a Prius. When last we drove to the gun range I was sort of surprised to see there were only 4 other cars in the range parking lot, 3 of them were Prius and the last was a Smart Car. Any other time we go, ours is usually the only small vehicle there. Usually I'm parked between two large vehicles such as a Hummer and an F250 Dually.

    But I must admit, I've never seen a Prius with a gun rack. I'd like to see that.

    Theses all apply to me...

    Your computer pass words are gun related.

    All your trousers are let out so you can wear a ITB holster.

    You own enough guns to arm everyone on your block.

    You don't even reload but still collect your brass.

    You live in a part of the country where deer season is a recognized holiday.

    You ever smoked a cigarette with Hoppe's on it.....and did not put it out.

    You discover the reason you cannot fall asleep at a friend's house is that you do not have your carry gun within arm's reach. Once this problem is corrected, you fall asleep within one minute of closing your eyes.

    Your 4 year old can name your guns.

    You've ever paused to rant about unsafe gun handling during a movie/tv show.
