I think therapy of some type may be in order. There is no known cure but maybe they can slow the progression of the affliction some.

Yes the GBD (Gun Buying Dease) is hard to control & there is no cure only control !

I have a few firearms to thin out in Aussie just got back to NZ today, thinning out 2 But ended up with 3 more & even when I went into a gunshop to see about transferring after sale, ended up buying another !
But a near mint 92 Win Octagonal in 32WCF, just couldn't pass that up !

Only I was after a full tube mag to match my 44/40 Rifle, so got nice Gibbs (I think) 6.5 Sporter, Brno 22Hornet & the 92 Win !

Quite a find in that M92 = well done.
The BRNO .22 Hornet - also good - BRNO Fox? or CZ?

Thank you Daryl, better still ZKW465 double trigger, looked a bit scruffy from the photos & was a bit but bore is 85-95% one of the best of that old model I have had !

Yes that M92 is a beauty & the bore on that one is 95-99%, only down for me was half tube mag as are most of the ones in the South Pacific & the wood is very plain even if in great condition .

Yeah - I just sold my .45/70 Marlin to a friend. I'll stick with my M76 in .50/95, I guess. It does 1,650fps and up to 1,750fps with a 368gr. FN. That will do OK for me.
