    Some of My old reading material has resurfaced be good to look back over them, sporting gun and shooting news, mainly 80s 90s but also a couple from 1978 at a whopping 5p each, I'm pretty sure I didn't buy them two.

    Must be catching, found a pile of old shooting mags in a chest in the attic yesterday. Nothing before the 90s which now that i think of it still makes them nearly 30 years old.

    What do you do with yours, the general "you". Keep them, dump them, sort them into piles and do both?

    I'm a terrible hoarder, I don't like throwing things out, I have them hidden in boxes, I also have dozens of angling magazines from around the same years, angling would be my main passion, trying to get myself back into a bit of shooting. Bought another rifle last week just waiting on the paperwork. Like for like getting rid of a brno iv had about 25years for a newer version.

    What type of Brno did you get rid of. The model no 4 was supposed to be very accurate.

    Would love to get my hands on one. Those model 5's (ZKM 573) were supposed to be the best, made from 58 to 78 I think.

    I think the serial number states its 1947, I can send you pictures if your interested in it. I remember a bit of interest in it before on an old group I was on.
