    I was looking through my collection and was thinking: "Wow, I have quite a few of certain rifles, calibers, etx."

    So, what is everyone's addictive and guilty pleasure when it comes to rifles? What is that one _____ that you can't seem to have enough of? Mosins? ARs? AKs? Milsurps in general? Certain calibers that you have multiple platforms of? Certain configurations even?

    I personally have quite a few 'doubles' in my collection, despite only owning a dozen guns - mostly milsurp. Pics welcome if you want;)

    I generally celebrate diversity...but, have several .22LRs. Mostly I prefer to keep one rifle to one use, and most are in different chamberings (that I consider ideal for the respective use), even some of the .22LRs have different uses despite the like chambering.

    :)

    I was gonna say .22's as well, but I think I have developed an addiction to TC Encore barrels and accessories.

    Mini 30 and SKS: 7.62x39.

    Three Lee-Enfields (.303): a #4 and two #5s :).

    Sadly, so far only one Mauser: an 8mm Yugo 48A, but will have a second classic Mauser.
    Of the few Czech VZ-24s I've seen, each had a trashed bore, some with only dark, very scraped metal.

    A second .22 rifle would also be lots of fun.

    I'm pretty simple.

    .22LR, of course.

    7.62x39 and x54r.

    I'm a fan of the Russian .30's. Wanted to get my safe filled with AK, SKS and CZ52, a few more Mosin Nagants, a PSL, and anything else I can find (and afford) in x54r.

    My biggest complaint is that I can't find a modern bolt-action or (relatively affordable) M1-equivalent in x54r. Love that round.

    5 Various 22LR (one semi-auto, one lever, three bolt actions)

    5 Swiss K31s (7.5mm Swiss)

    4 AKs (two in 7.62x39, one in 5.56x45 and one in .308

    2 FALs (7.62x51)

    2 Springfield 1903s (30-06)

    Longguns: AR15 & AR10 types, turnbolts, semi-auto shotguns. Turnbolts most common by far.

    Calibers: .243 Win, 12 ga, 20 ga, .45-70, .223, .17 HMR, and of course .22lr (if you count pistols, then .45 Colt, .45 acp, and 9x19mm). 12 ga most common in longguns, followed by .223/5.56x45.

    It would be milsurps in general for me.
    I have a Lee Enfield No. 4 Mk 1*, a Long Branch.
    Once I get a gun safe and a rack of vintage stereo gear sold, the wife says I can get more guns. She seems to have more issues with stereos than guns.:D
    I'd like to get a No 1. Mk III, a K31, and various Mausers.
    I'd also love a Garand. It'd be a great hog control rifle.

    22LR is the winner in my house:
    6 - Rifles (does not include one I gave away last week to a father of 2 kids that are learning to shoot and loved my little old single shot bolt action Remington)
    3 - pistols

    Next up is the 7.62x39:
    3 - Rifles (2 SKS and 1 AK)
