    You know you're a gun nut when...

    I was down at Barnes and Nobles the other day looking at a SWAT mag as I turned the page there was an ad for a .50 BMG. Needless to say I started to drool and I showed the ad to my buddy.

    He asked if I was drooling over the woman in the ad or the rifle.

    I didn't know there was a woman in the ad.

    Go dig a hole, crawl in, pull in the dirt over you. I, of course, never notice the girl either if my wife is present!

    I like gun ads as well as anyone. A pretty woman holding a gun can be a true form of ART.

    I'll never quit looking at women till I'm dead.I

    As my wife puts if, she dosent care as long as I..."look but dont touch".
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Except I'm not really that close to 35 yet....When I took a second look at the ad and saw the woman, the rifle was still better looking.

    I thought it was a Cobb .50 ad but I checked their website and they didn't have a copy of the ad.

    We've caught a lot of flak for running that ad.

    Caught flak from who? It is tasteful and IMHO it sells. I know I want to buy their products!
