    Blasphemy!:p

    I think its possible, maybe like three of everything could be too much, as for one or two? Never.

    You need that 303 and a Garand.

    You can never have too many mil surps. I have been telling my wife that for years, and I never lie to my wife.

    Actually had that debate with myself last month- did I REALLY want to add to the stable ANOTHER caliber I would have to stock ammo for?

    Being a GREAT debater, I won. :rolleyes:

    I to love mil-surplus guns. I've got a Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk 3 and a No. 4 Mk 1 on the way, a 1954 Russian SKS, a Mosin-Nagant M91/30 and a Polish P64 9mm Makarov pistol. So many more I want to collect.

    So very true, but why you'd want to be cured is beyond me :)

    Trez, did you hit your head or something? Go out and buy a Mauser, and be happy. ;)

    Personal I think you probably have a few too many but thankfully it a problem easily resolved. Send me your address I'll have a copy of my C & R license on the way. :)

    I have limited myself to one caliber. I got rid of the Japanese rifles, the German rifles, and have stuck with the Russian/Soviet/Finnish/Chinese/Romanian/Polish and Hungarians. I love 880 rounds of high-power ammo for $150.90 delivered, it makes the cheap-skate in me happy, very, very happy.
