    Title says it all - have fun :)

    When you don't let an open wound on your cheek heal properly because you keep shooting on it.

    When you calculate your meals/bills/trips/gas/etc. on the basis of how many boxes of shells that compares to.

    When you get a speeding ticket and figure out what new gun that money could have been used on instead.

    When you feel like a non-shooting day is a wasted day when there are light winds and a sunny sky.

    You have no more money, Your arm is exhausted from reloading on weeknights, and your wife wants a divorce as your never home on the weekends for Honey Do's.

    When you drive out to the gun club and am told you can't shoot due to -80 degree wind chill and the machines won't function properly, and you get upset!

    When you have shot every target at the grand and rush back home to see if you still have time to shoot the doubles event.

    When you shoot your final shot at the week long state shoot (after shooting over 1400 targets) and head to the practice field in your home town to get in a few rounds of practice...

    When shooting gives you something that most old trap shooters take Viagra to get.
