It's V-E-R-Y B-A-D-D.
Very few people that have contracted this disease, have ever recovered back to their normal life!
It usually (but not always) starts by contracting it from someone that already has it... seeing them at the range with a funny lookin' riffle... but you can also cortract it from books, magazines, and websites (but not from toilet seats)!
You start being vulnerable when you say "Whatzat?" at the range... you may get away scott free, but there's a 70% chance you alread have the virus growing in your brain cells.
1 - You look at the barrel of your Remington Varmint Special, and think it's the light weight version.
2 - You start thinking that 26" barrels are woods carbines.
3 - You start thinking that a 11 pound rifle, is a feather weight.
4 - When you go to the range, you keep staring off, over the last berm, into space... mumbling "I think could do it with a new rifle."
5 - You start passing Woodchuck shots at 500 yds, saying "Aw, that's a chip shot!"
6 - Crows at 600 and 700 start looking very interesting.
7 - You start carrying a Bushnell YP-1000 in the glove box, and take it out every chance you get, while stopped on country roads.
8 - The YP-1000 gets lame, and you mount a Wild optical rangefinder over the moon roof on your wifes car.
9 - Your wife files for divorce... she gets the house, the bank accounts, the country place... and the only thing you contest is your new 19 pound varmint rifle, your 27 pound deer rifle, the Wild RF, and the new 40x125 Chinese bins.
10 - You are lost, so give into it, and enjoy... you will have a lot of company at the "clinic".
Here, kitty kitty kitty.
