My mother the art collector taught me something about the art of being an art collector: collect what makes you happy, not what you’re “supposed” to collect. Follow your heart, as Disney princesses constantly remind us. My gun collection is far too meagre to have a theme (never mind a theme song). But if I had to identify something that ties my firearms farrago together it’s my desire to own a quintessential example of each firearm type: striker-fired polymer handgun (FNS-9), revolver (Smith & Wesson 4″ 686), battle rifle (SCAR-16), lever gun (Grizzly Customs .357), home defense shotgun (Benelli M4), etc. Speaking of all the guns you lost in a boating accident, was there any overarching characteristic that defined your collection?
