You know you give the appearance of a gun nut when random ass people you don't even know seek out your opinion in the gun store.

And then the guy behind the counter offers you 5 percent off your next purchase for taking care of that while he was busy with another customer...and because you've also helped other customers in the same shop.

Just helped make a sale on a model 66.

I was behind the counter and he assumed I worked there.

You know you're a gun nut when the local shops have extended you an open invite to come behind the counter to browse through the stock.

If they call me from the gun store it is usually too late to change their mind. Only once have I been able to be of any real help on the phone and that was to get my buddy a gun for a fraction of the asking price because I got frustrated and told him to make an offer for something like half of what they were asking and if they didn't accept it to walk out. They accepted it.

They were shut down by BATFE a few weeks later (Gun Exchange in San Jose CA. Not sure why they were shut down except that they were total A-holes).

Same guy bought a PSA lower from the same store for a lot more than they go for online. I had a deal all set up for him directly from JDM for $140 including transfer, but he couldn't be patient and wait for it.

I think he ended up selling the PSA because it was on the books that he owned an "Assault Rifle" and he was nervous about that. Not sure if he got his money out of it or not, but I hope he did.

I just wish people would ask for advice at a point when they are willing to listen to it!!!!

You know you are a gun nut when you get mad at friends after they buy a gun and regret it, because they didn't call you. The trigger pull is too long, I special ordered it and it doesn't fit my hand, etc. Wah wah wah

Or how about this one. A buddy of mine bought an MP5 years ago- like in 1992 or thereabouts. He called me up the afternoon he picked it up and asked if he could come over and shoot it at my house, which of course I said yes! And then a couple of years (?) later he gave it to a dude in exchange for a brake job on his piece of crap car.

Worst part? I was a professional mechanic and had a shop where I could do all of the side work I wanted and the dude he gave it to wasn't even a mechanic! He never even called me. .

I'm still pissed about that and it has been 20 years now!

You know you're a gun nut if you can recognize that these posts belong here and not in the Pet Peeves thread!
