Hello from the beautiful state of Kentucky. I'm 23, a University of Kentucky College Graduate in Anthropology, I just got married 6 weeks ago, and I love guns! I recently purchased my first Marlin centerfire: A beautiful blued-and-walnut 1894C. I have wanted one of those for a long time, so I decided to finally take the plunge. And oh, how thankful I am! I traded a tacticool WASR10 Ak47 towards it, and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. I do have a few newbie questions about it, so I will be starting a new thread in the 1894 section. This website looks very friendly and helpful, and I'm looking forward to hours and hours of lurking!
