To me it is first about caliber. However, the DR bug bit me and now I have bought two. They now obsorb me and my experience is you decide to either break the five figure barrier on fine rifles or you do not which to each their own. My experience is once you get into the DR stage as I have you no longer think about what you have bought in the past only what manufacturer you want for the futureSo I think I am about to commit to acts of rifle sacrilege. First, I am looking at buying a non-Weatherby rifle in a Weatherby cartridge. Second, I am looking at buying the same model rifle that I already own. The rifle in question is a Dakota Arms model 76 in .257 Weatherby.
I was just wondering if y'all have a personal rule against owning too many rifles from the same manufacturer or at least in the same model. My Dakota is the nicest rifle I have ever owned but I still feel bad picking up another simply because there are so many great rifle manufacturers out that it seems like a waste to just have all of my guns in the same model from the same manufacturer.
Obviously this is a rather ridiculous question and is ultimately inconsequential but I just want to know if anyone else thinks like I do about this.
