PS: I was five years old when my grandmother said I was related to General Beauregard, and I instantly became a Civil War buff ...
What is it that you love about historic firearms?
JS: My favorite guns are those with a specific history - guns that are a tangible link to a specific person or event from our past. The good ones are "goosebump guns" for me.
Americans have a deep fascination with guns which is certainly reflected on TV and film. Why is that?
PS: Guns make things happen. They change history. Without them, TV and action movies would be one endless car chase that ends with a crash.
