Good to have you here Rob! I am the exact same way. I absolutely love cars (mainly sports cars and muscle cars). For me a lot of it is about the intricate mechanics involved, just as you mentioned. It's amazing that some group of engineers somewhere can come up with this stuff and make it work, whether it be firearms, sports cars, electronics, etc.I like firearms for the same reason I like cars (I'm a total car guy, so the "car forum" on here is a plus). There is just something so cool about having all these working parts come together to form a cohesive piece of machinery that works with mechanical precision. Almost makes you teary eyed. Anything else ya wanna know, just ask.
