hunter, for my firearms experience, ive been around firearms since i was about 3... shot my first gun when i was so young, all i can remember from the experience was being thrown backwards (it was a 12 gauge).... but my love for firearms, and love for engineering go hand-in-hand pretty closely, and the interest in the various mechanical mechanisms inside them lead me to begin collecting them many years ago (im 27 now)...

when you see most machines they serve a specific purpose well, and there arent too many restraints on them, but when you look at firearms they have to be reliable, durable, accurate, all while fitting into a package thats comfortable to hold, and atleast survivable to shoot... its a tall order that leads me to great admiration for the early designers of the modern firearm world, like john browning for example
