For example, I'm looking for a 32-20 Lee Loader set and mention it in a couple places just in case someone has one they want to sell. No real response and I kinda give up. Been checking ebay for a couple weeks and found one there that was with two Lee boolit molds and being sold all together. Must have had a wicked high reserve because I won the auction at just under $6o and reserve was not met. Seller wouldn't reply to my questions about selling the loader seperately so I gave up on that one.

Then last night I was back here surfing a bit and checked my post asking for info on the 32-20 in the 1894 forum and danged if there wasn't a fella said he had one! Wooohooo! I thought. Then I looked at his personal info and see he's from Austrailia!!!! Well heck.... shipping will be more than the loader is worth. But just in case, I went ahead and pm'd Aussie1 my thanks and concerns about costs and gave him my address so he could properly determine postage.

Ya know what that li'l stinker does? He responds "I'll get all the gear together and send it over Dave, don't worry about the postage, I'll take care of all that, the stuff may as well go to someone who's going to use it!"

So, a great big THANK YOU goes out to Aussie1 in particular and to Marlin Owners in general. Thanks guys for the gathering together of such a wonderful group of folks with common interests and good old fashioned values. I'm only aware of one other website that is in the same class and that is an archery site I go to.

Aussie, if you see this, I owe ya one. Big time.

Dave

Thumbs up to both of you! Hopefully you'll "pay it forward". ;D

I had a similar thing happen to me on a Pontiac forum. I needed a part for my '67 but didn't want to pay $50 for a brand new reproduction when a serviceable used part would do. So I asked on the forums if anyone had one they would sell. Someone there shipped me the part for free. :) It made my day!

I've found that internet forums can be filled with some of the nicest people you'll never meet. ;)

No doubt...

I have driven from PA up to Rhode Island to meet with a group of guys I gamed with. I've also flown out to Chicago to attend the wedding of another guy I gamed with for years.

I met him back in 2001 and we still game several times a week and do a weekly internet radio show together along with his wife. You never know where you'll meet your next good friend.

Yep, Shane is a good guy, sent me a set of reloading dies NO COST! That was back a few years ago and I don't ever forget it or how some of these guys jumped right in to help me get started reloading. We're a good bunch here at MO! Mr fixit

I've had several occasions like that on MO, and I hope to be on the other end of that sometime!

The wealth of valid information and the acceptance as an equal from everyone on this forum is why it is my main hang out. It also keeps me out of mischief that we guys just seem to as be into around the house.

Back about 10 years ago, when I got my first .45/70 Marlin Guide Gun, a poster here (or maybe on the old "Marlin Talk" forum) not only told me how to shim the scope mount, but sent me some brass shims to use.

That cured the problem - an earlier case of Marlin barrel droop I believe!

Good folks here, for the most part.

Regards, Guy

Pretty much the way it goes, we help each other and that is what this is all about.

I've been on the sending and recieving end here at Marlin Owners a few times.

One that stands out is a package I got by surprise had two unopened boxes of 170gn for my .32 Special, that's 200 rounds to reload. My friend Papa John thank you again.

Shane has also sent me numerous cartridges for my collection, several of which I was totally unfamiliar with. There's one or two I'm STILL not sure about. ;D

Ed, I knew the minute I laid eyes on those bullets what I ought to do with them. And you're very welcome. Least I could do.

I believe it. The quality of the people here on MO is the main reason this is the only site I check regularly when I am at home. That and the wealth of infomation they possess :). Hats off to Aussie1 ;).
