I'm not "a gun nut" David, my interest is purely academic I don't, and never have owned a gun myself, the only times I have used them was for five years in the Royal Marines as a small arms instructor and in combat and I have no desire to ever touch one again.
Hold on, there was a unit in the Royal Marines for soldiers with small arms?
What exactly did you teach them?
Eight hundred leaf-tables and no chairs? You can't sell leaf-tables and no chairs. Chairs, you got a dinette set. No chairs, you got dick!
