and finally decided to share in the joy of owning a Marlin lever gun. Picked up a Marlin 30AW from the pawn shop a few weeks ago and man is it a joy to shoot! I've wanted one since my dad had one when I was young. So this year I decided to look for one I could rescue and put to good use. I have sixty rounds through this one so far and no problems yet. Plan to take a hog sometime this year and hopefully a deer next season. Thanks for taking the time to read my rambling folks!
