Oy, they're onto me...
I saw this on the V-Twin foruma dn thought you might get a laugh out of it. I hope it might spark an attempt at creating a parallel depiction of your CCW life.

Here's a few to get it started...
You buy your pants one size too big so your IWB holster fits comfortably.
You bring your OWB rig to the clothing store to be sure that jacket your buying will conceal it properly.
You have 3 holsters for your main CCW and 2 for your backup.
You plan your errands to avoid places you cannot CCW or so that you get the ones out of the way first where you can't CCW.
You have more guns than your wife has shoes.
You spend more time cleaning guns than your cars.
You spend more a week on ammo than gas.
You never sit with your back to the entrance.
You position your family around the table to give you clear fields of fire.
Your family has been trained to get down when you tell them.
You have more than 2 guns stashed in strategic location around your house. (reloads in other places)
You have at least one car gun per car.
Your dogs are named Magnum, Shooter, or both.
When you watch movies you try to identify all the guns used. You also point out the errors in handling, reloads etc.
Keep going, there are a lot more, but I have to get to the airport.

Hehe, true on almost all of those, I'm not sure I have much to add.....
In situations where for whatever reason you can only carry your backup pocket pistol, you don't "really" consider yourself armed.
You own several shirts with gunmaker logos and/or pro-RKBA slogans, but would never wear them in public because they would be a "tell", so they are relegated to the range.
You really wish somebody would make a Breakfree-scented aftershave.
You plan your gun-buying "schedule" at least six months in advance.
You have no idea what the intended purpose of a pipe-cleaner is, only that it's great for firing pin channels.
You would sooner move to Central Alaska then Southern California.
The employees at the gun store / shooting range yell your name in unison when you walk in the door, just like Norm from Cheers.
