The other day I was cleaning my few guns and I started to wonder how long before all these become obsolete? For past centuries we have relied on the gun powder to use guns similar to oil that we needed to operate vehicles. Now we see the shift from oil to electric operation of vehicles. How long before we see the similar shift in weapons technology for civilians where gun powder becomes obsolete? And what will the next technology look like? Any thoughts? I am that sure some you who have an extensive collection must have thought about this where one day all the weapons we have today will be no more than antiques decorating our walls remembering the past. Such as swords, lances, daggers, old musket firearms etc.
