I probably don't need to tell you guys here, but it seems that the versatility of the lever gun is very prominant on TV.
For example, I was watching the CBS show Vegas on TV tonight and noticed the sheriff along with his deputies were all armed with lever action rifles, ( I couldn't get a close look, but if I didn't know any better I'd think they were Marlins). Then to my surprise a commercial appeared for Silvester Stallone's new upcoming movie "Bullet to the head" and I'd be darn, in one scene he appears to be using a lever gun in a shoot out.
If this keeps up, the ugly tactical assault rifle will be falling off the way side, and people will start snatching up lever guns...

After semi-autos the lever is the fastest action. Its the original assault rifle

Its always good to see others getting into Lever actions, They are just the best.... but as they start buying up all the levers it will jack the price up even further and we wont be able to afford more

I first learned to shoot with Lever actions when I was a kid. I still own one to this day. Can't beat an old 30-30 in the deer woods!
I'm glad I have all the leverguns I need.
Except if you have a Marauder in .35 Rem you are tired of, or maybe an extra .444, or...
Son, any day you wake up is a good day.
