That would be a .035 bullet, or thirty five thousandths of an inch, or about the thickness of nine sheets of common copying paper. Kinda makes the .17 calibers look like elephant rounds.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

The answer(s) are yes to the first, and "possibly" to the second!

You know you're a gun nut if the top of your gun case looks like mine.

OK,
went down to turners today and put my money on the 10/22Laser.
Doubt if I will ever buy another gun.
Damn the paper work and add on fees.
And the ten day wait.
The anti gunners are winning.
While they have my history on their computer,
still had to fill out the same form as last time,
and the time before.
And the salesman acted as though he was doing me a favor.
Yes there are other gun stores,
but too far for me to drive.
Ok, we all remember when we could walk out the door, the same day,
with our new gun.
And sometimes with a handgun if they knew you.
AND GEE,
the crime rate was A LOT lower then.
Ten days,
and they have it figured to the hour.
Ok I don't blame the store,
they have to do it buy the book.

OK, just ranting,
its the same for all us califites.
At least that part is done.
cant wait till I get it home.

I thought "gun nut" was the name of that addiction... And it's not "just" an addiction, it's THE addiction!

I might be a gun nut if I react protectively to the name of my addiction.

That's what I was thinking...
When I was shopping for a shotgun for the shoot 'n' hoot, I went to many pawn shops. I looked at many guns. Probably close to 1,000 over the course of nearly a month. I finally found "the one". As soon as I wrapped my hand around the wrist of that beautiful double, saw the swirls of the faded case hardening, the extricate engravings along the receiver, tang, trigger guard, and rib... then I threw it to my shoulder where my cheek fell right along the stock like that's just where the gun was meant to be, in prefect alignment with the universe. I looked the dealer in the eye, and said, "thanks for holding MY gun for me. I'm here to sign her release papers."

It took less than ten minutes. I also got a red bull.
