It started innocently enough, with the purchase of a couple of Allen wrench sets -- one in metric and one in imperial, because I'd just gotten into guns and I couldn't tell which one to use for securing my bipod to my .22 rifle, so I got both.
Then I got my Mosin-Nagant, and I needed one of those tools to adjust the windage of the front globe sight.
I knew things were getting serious when I acquired a Dremel tool for fitting the Tinmey trigger into my ATI stock. After that, it just kind of snowballed: a six-piece punch set. A universal bench block. A 5-in-1 dual interchangeable head hammer. A sillcock key.
Now I find myself cruising Amazon and shopping for calipers with a depth gauge, and I find myself wondering, How did this happen?
How did I, of all people, become... a tool owner?
