So, I'm aspiring to become a Buddhist and really change the way I interact with the world. However, I have always enjoyed to study various wars and this ultimately lead to me collecting guns. Most of the guns I purchase are from WWII or older, and the only thing I kill is paper targets and my bank account. I enjoy collecting guns because it makes me feel connected to the men who fought in various historical battles and they are tangible reminders of the madness of war and of humanity's most trying times.
My question is, can I become a Buddhist and still collect firearms? I never intend to use them to harm anyone and I am a vegetarian so hunting is of no interest to me. To be totally honest, I don't even know if I'm approaching this whole matter correctly so any insight would be greatly appreciated.
