I'm still waiting to see over-"macho" posts or posters exhibiting a fetish (Merriam-Webster - a need or desire for an object, body part, or activity for sexual excitement : an object that is believed to have magical powers) for guns.  Enthusiastic hobbyists, yes.  But people do get enthusiastic for their hobbies, whether it is guns, sand-castles, or male chorus singing.

Personally, the last gun that I used was attached by a cord to my Nintendo NES as was only good for potting birds on the TV screen.

This winter/spring I also acquired a Marlin 1893 lever action in .30-30; from the serial numbers it appears that it was made right after WWI (sometime before 1920).  Have not gotten a chance to shoot it yet and is my first .30-30.  Nice looking rifle.  Very smooth action.  Anyone here have one?

I have one in 30-30 and also one in 32special.  Have taken many deer with these over the years.

I also have a 30-30 lever action and love it, especially for still hunting since it is much lighter than my .308 Remington.  I use Hornady bullets to improve the ballistics.

Any idea how old yours are?  Here's a You Tube video on a takedown version that I especially like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnZsGX5b6zw
