Good morning!
Would you say the term "Büchsenmacher" is a little misleading? I see it means "gunsmith" (someone who makes or repairs guns). I was maybe expecting this to be related to books.

I guess it's the same as in English with some compound words. e.g eggplant has nothing to do with eggs. Curious if there is an explanation or I have to learn it as such.
