Something I’ve noticed… many of the same people who are gunnies are also knife people (what should they be called- knifies, bladies ??).
ANYway, my guess is that those who admire the fine workmanship of a well made gun, & its good fit & finish, appreciate those same qualities of craftsmanship in a well made blade.
I’ve been an accumulator of pointysticks longer that boomsticks, although my fascination with both goes back to when I was a crumb snatcher. Probably the cowboy & Wild West thing.
Mebbe we’re just crazy people who lust for weapons?
That’s probably it.
