Then, you sit back and watch the fur fly. Fifty otherwise mature and well respected members will make complete and utter asses of themselves by ripping this new member a new ******* to go along with their new gun, over, and over, and over, and over, repeatedly, and repeatedly, and repeatedly... until a mod steps in and extinguishes the flame throwers.

This usually results in some innocent, ignorant, poor soul who is just looking for a little friendly advice, now suddenly decides that maybe FTF isn't such a great place. They get mad, and leave. Very justifiably too. They probably all get the impression that us "gun nuts" are a bunch of flaming *******s too.

Totally not the way to bring new people into the fold. But watch. You stick around long enough and you'll see the "clip vs magazine" thing happen.
So friggin' true!

And instead of telling people "later", you say "Keep your powder dry"

You buy clothes in the Sporting Goods dept at WalMart at the end of hunting season... when they have sales.

Therefore, you where a LOT of camo around.

It's not a fashion choice, you're just saving $$$ for the really important stuff, like ammo, when it's in stock.

My coworker wants to talk to this chick at a local convenience store. I happen to have chatted with her a few times while shopping for junk food.

He asked me for advice. Knowing that she keeps an issue of "guns and ammo" handy, I told him this...

Go in, walk straight up to her, and say "honey, you're like a gatling gun", and when she gives you an opening, because you know she's gonna look at you like you're crazy, continue with, "you're so bad and gorgeous, I want to snake all your bores all day and all night"

He's promised to report her response in the morning when I relieve him. If he's not in jail.

In jail for what? Sounds like the best pick up line ever.
