Lovecraft and Guns

A recent comment had me searching for more information, and I found this pericope,

"...Lovecraft at this time developed an interest in firearms ... 'After 1904 I had a succession of 22-calibre rifles, & became a fair shot till my eyes played hell with my accuracy. [1]" [2]

1 HPL to Vernon Shea, 1933.
2 A Dreamer and a Visonary, Joshi, Liverpool, 2001, p.53 & note 26.

I did not know this about HPL. I'm loving your blog. There's some great information here.
