Awesome! And there you go, I think you've pretty much got it narrowed down, then. Same here about the playing cards and poker, not skilled mind you, but I love playing the game along with other card games; I like blackjack the most. But I do like guns, specifically the black powder guns used before and during the civil war era, of which I have a large reproduction collection set that I target practice with on a regular basis. There is just something about them that appeals to me, more so than modern guns. Not to mention I have a attraction to other things from the old west, from old security locks to old mechanized machines pulled by horse or mule. Anyway, like you, if were to assume all the attraction to this stuff was to come from a past life, I'd say the old west as well; or at least somewhere between 1750 to 1900.
If anything, it makes one wonder.
