I think I have too many rifles!
 
Just spent 3 hours cleaning rifles that I really don't use. Some are high end european sporters, others are Classic matching military rifles. A couple just got a quick bore cleaning, others I broke down completely and really detailed them. One of my all time favorites is still my 1955 Husqvarna 8x57 that is built on a 1947 Belgian 98 receiver. Only 10,000 of these receivers were ever made. Husqvarna built a limited amount of rifles each year on them from 1947 to 1962. It sports the original short side rail scope mount. The bolt is matched to the receiver which is odd for a civilian rifle, stamped under the bolt at the root. The palm swell is perfectly flat in the original Walnut stock. 55 years old and nothing I see now comes close.

Wait a minute! It is not possible to have "too many rifles". We may have to suspend your membership for even having such a thought!

jpattersonnh, are you smoking crack?

Yes...Yes...you do have way to many and you really need to send me about half of them so you won't feel bad about owning so many. On the lighter side no one can have to many Guns.

Sad part is I have over 6000 rounds loaded for those rifles.
