I think there's been a slight climate shift in the last few years. It seems like its hotter in the summers, and cooler in the winters than it used to be.
i saw few last summer and haven't seen any this summer yet. i can remember my grandfather liking to sit on the back porch aon summer night and us watching the fireflys lighting up in the dark.

Thousands in northwest Ohio light up continuously. Looking over a soybean field is like a small fireworks show. They are a little thicker than normal, but we usually have a pretty good number of them. My girl gets a kick out of flashing a flashlight across a field of them, they pause for a second, then flash within a second or so of each other.

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

You have ever traded services from your business for a customer's gun they are selling. My great grandfather did this in 1947 when he was offered an 1882 Winchester Carbine in.38 Winchester Centerfire for some repairs on a guys truck while he was out here visiting family form Colorado. hat rifle is still in the family.

As a wedding present you receive his and her's gun safes.

Your C&R collection is large enough to have to be categorized by conflict, year of manufacture, and country.

Loaned my nephew my JEEP Cherokee to drive to school his Senior year, 2 weeks into the school year he walks in and hands me 5 5.56 rounds and says "You trying to get me suspended?" I forgot they were in the ashtray.

My son has the same challenges. But just as likely he is driving his Bronco. He usually has a bug-out bag, chainsaw, machete, etc. just because we are often using those tools. He is going to the local county trade school where all pocket knives are banned etc. (its still a public school) but he leaves all of his artillery out in his truck. Sometimes a piece of brass or a live round can be found though.

Most of mine are from Beretta. Hey, they have nice clothes. Their hunting jackets and range bags just happen to cost the same as a new gun.
