you look at the cover of "enemy at the gates" and the first thing you relaize is the mosin bolt handle is on the wrong side.

you have discussed at length whether a sword bayonet has an advantage over a standard bayonet.

you can translate arsenal symbols from every com-bloc country (or have them tattooed on you) :devilsidesmile:

have a picture of sergi mosin on your desktop.

you know who sergi mosin IS.

you actually know how to use the "bolt dissasembly tool" that comes with mosin's.

you wife has cought you fondling your military rifles and you claim you were "wiping off cosmoline".

you know the street address of the Cugir arsenal.

the UPS man has to have a heavy duty cart because your last delivery broke his regular one.

you have ever come home to find a wooden crate with cyrillic print on your doorstep.

you have used cosmoline for cologne

you have more ammo than the local sporting goods store

your ammo comes in spam cans.

you can decipher all the print on said spam cans and translate it for non-milsurp collectors

you know what "silvertip" refers to and why its so awesome

Off the top of my head.....

you have more C&R depos on speed dial than pizza places.

you refer to "Trish" at SOG or "Bryan" at AIM as if they were your best friends.

you know who "Trish" at SOG or "Bryan" at AIM are with out having to look for business cards to verify.

you ask if it's a CAI import or RGuns, and get sad when it's RGuns.

you see any Mosin, the first marks you're looking for are in this order: an ex-sniper, refurb, year, factory, importer.

you know what CZ stands for.

you have a pen dedicated to your C&R log book.

you have replaced the pen because it ran out of ink.

you have more 7.62 by X ammo than .22lr.

you sigh when you hear a dealer say the PA-63 is a Makarov.

you carry Windex with you when you go shooting.

you feel a week with out using a C&R license is a violation of the license.

ROFLMAO, I won't buy stuff adulterated by their crappy import stamps

...I still can't get the taste of cosmoline out of my wife's good spaghetti pot.

I hate to say this, but until April of last year, I didn't own a single gun, and now I'm coming up with lists for "You know your're a milsurp collector when...." LMFAO!

I figured this needs a bump with a few more additions.....

you know what makes corrosive ammo corrosive.

you correct people on how to pronounce "Mosin" and/or "Nagant".

your weekend events are planned around your gun shows.

you get up earlier on the weekends then you do during the week, just to be first in line at a gun show.

you know 5 or more people waiting in line with you.

you recognize 10 or more people walking around you saw at last week's gun show.

you know most of the vendors at any given gun show.

you start looking out of the area/state for gun shows when it's only a 1 show weekend locally.

your mail man is just as excited about delivering you a large package as you are to receive it.

you always ask "Is there a discount if I buy a crate full?"

you can't get the smell of cosmo out of your hands.

you have armed more than 2 of your closest friends with Mosins.

there's more than one gun cleaning accessory in the bathroom.

you check the ATF website at least once a week for a C&R list update.

you know how to always get free shipping from Numrich.

And last but not least......

to you, the phrase "shooting your load" is no longer a sexual reference.
