Are there any on this board?
More like paging WTF.
Whats the definition of "gun nut?"
A person with 10 more more guns. I am 9 right now because I just sold two over the weekend.
I'm hoping someone on this board owns a CZ P07 duty 9mm. I just ordered one and want to hear about it from someone who owns one.
Does Call of Duty count?
Definitely not a 'nut' since I don't actually own a gun yet. My wife really wants a gun and we go to the range sometimes and its a fun date that gets her all fired up. She wants a gun and I'm cool with it, but ammo is so freaking expensive. I want us to get a .22 for target practice but she's pretty adamant about us not getting a sissy gun (she's tiny and overcompensates all the time). I don't really want to shell out a ton of money for 9mm or .45 ammo, so I just haven't really gone around looking for one. My buddy says that there are some 9mm where you can buy a converter to .22 for target practice for another ~$250, but that probably puts it at about $800 for a pistol and then my wife still won't want to shoot .22 ammo. She's being pretty stubborn about it.
Shooting seems like a pretty expensive hobby.
You could get a Glock 19 9MM with a .22lr conversion kit. Then you have both. 9mm ammo is pretty cheap when it comes to just shooting. 9mm averages about $10/box of 50 around here. Where I shoot it cost me $7/box.
I have a Sig Sauer P226, .40 S&W and LOVE IT. Also have a Benelli 12-guage, and my grandfather's old .22 rifle and .38 service revolver.
BTW for cheap ammo, look at cheaperthandirt.com or sportsmansguide.com

Mr. Julester has his grandfather's old 1911 Remington .45. (I'm sure something in there is redundant but I don't know all the terminology). We had a date night with 3 other couples a few months ago where we all went to the shooting range. The package deal we bought was shooting .22s but we also shot his gun and another friend's. Fun, romantic night, LOL.
My next handgun will be a P226 Scorpion. I love that thing. I shot it at my range and it is very nice, but the P07 will be my CCW.
I went to the range recently after a 15 year hiatus and verified that I can't hit the broad side of a barn with my 38 revolver. It was so bad I took it out of commission for home protection and loaded up a 12 gauge.
My wife and i just got a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm for home defense. We both have shot it a few times and love it. I can see how people become gun nuts very fast. It is amazing how much of a stress relief it can be going to the range and unloading a few magazines.
Just came back from my hunting trip in WV this past week. S&W lever action 30-30 produced another deer for my freezer... So yes, I have a lot of guns though most of them are my dads (will be mine one day).
No, actually I'm not. I wouldn't mind getting a shotgun or rifle though for when it all goes to shit.
Congrats! I have a Marlin 336 that I use for Deer. I haven't rifle hunted in about 7 years. Mainly I just varmint hunt anymore. I go out to Western Kansas and shoot prairie dogs and coyotes. Keeps me sharp for long distances and it gets me permission to hunt land later on.

Tell your wife to grow up. A .22 is not a toy. More people have been killed by a 22 than any other caliber. If she had ever done a ballistics test she would know there is nothing "sissy" about a 22. I hear the same garbage from beginners everywhere, and it is a recipe to gets oneself killed. its always these rambos that have an "accident".
Tell her to park her balls and that practicing with a 22 conversion will allow her to learn basic shooting skills without spending enormous amounts of funds on ammo.
She needs a head check. She needs to learn respect for all firearms regardless of caliber without the bravado and bad attitude she has had thus far.
Have her watch the scene from the Wire with Snoop in the hardware store.
[FIGURATIVE] SHOTS FIRED!!
How my hair look mike?
Smiley, my advice is that you don't share this with her after she is done opening up and loading her new 9mm Christmas gift.
Just a suggestion.
I own a Glock 22 (.40 cal). My Dad just bought a Kimber Custom II 1911, I can't wait to shoot it.
