    Symptoms of Marlinitis

    Here is the official symptoms list to tell if you have the incurable disease of Marlinitis...I will update them as further evidence becomes available.

    1. You own a Marlin
    2. You joined MarlinOwners.com
    3. You own more than one Marlin
    4. You have at least one Team number
    5. You believe the best calibers have a hypen in them
    6. You name your Marlin
    7. You bathe with your Marlin
    8. You sleep with your Marlin
    9. You believe a JM stamp is the Holy Grail of Marlins
    10. You surf MarlinOwners.com while bathing or eating
    11. You know what a Skratchism is
    12. You know the meaning of Remlin
    13. You think about taking the wheel weights off your tires so you can cast your own boolits
    14. You think Hoppes #9 is suitable for use a cologne or perfume
    15. You are required to buy a larger gun safe every six months to hold your new additions
    16. You sneak a new Marlin by your significant other by saying it was one you just took out of the safe
    17. You believe it is perfectly acceptable to own several Marlins of the same model simply because they're in different calibers
    18. You've ever posted in the .35 Remington Advantage thread
    19. You get jealous when somebody you only know on the internet buys a Marlin
    20. You get into arguments over pistol grip vs straight grip stocks
    21. You can tell the date of manufacture by looking at the serial number
    22. When you walk into your local gunshop the dealer starts pulling Marlins off the shelf before you say, "Hello."
    23. You own more than one of the same model and caliber, just in case one wears out...despite the fact it hasn't happened yet
    24. You've ever considered selling organs in order to finance your Marlin purchases
    25. You think about purchasing an old bank building just for the walk in vault
    26. You have more pictures of your Marlins than you do of your family members
    27. Your annual budget includes a line item simply labeled as "Marlins"
    28. You would rather spend time with your Marlins than your family members
    29. If you buy a non-Marlin firearm, you feel obligated to buy another Marlin to restore the balance
    30. You've ever drooled on your keyboard over pictures somebody posted of their Marlins
    31. When MarlinOwners.com goes off line, you suffer withdrawal symptoms and have to caress your Marlin while in a fetal position
    32. The voices you hear in your head are your Marlins begging to be taken to the range
    33. Whenever you are forced to sell a Marlin, you sell something else and implement Symptom #16
    34. You have a visceral reaction when Symptom #33 fails and you are actually forced to sell a Marlin
    35. You walk into a new gun shop because of an sudden urge, and find a Marlin calling your name
    36. Your idea of porn involves leather, walnut, and blue steel - but no people
    37. You believe Doc's 405 grain prescription means a trip to the range
    38. You shop for Marlin parts online while at family functions
    39.
    Your FFL dealer calls to inform you that your Marlin has come in and is ready for pick up, and you don't know which one it is

    That would depend upon which 9 you got.

    All our life we trade our time for money, hoping to make enough money to do what we dream of, before we run out of time.

    Never remove a fence without learning why the fence was put up in the first place.

    I've used number 16 several times! Works like a charm!

    Chuck Norris was born on May 6th, 1945. Germany surrendered on May 7th, 1945. Coincidence? I don't think so!

    Somehow I think a "therapy group" session here would only make the affliction worse...

    No doubt that it's contagious and (whether true or not for cannabis) leads to other firearm related debilitating (at least as far as the checkbook is concerned) extensions of the affliction (as in different gun safes for different brands or actions or types or uses).
