Found this site and discovered I must have joined up sometime in the past. It's hell getting old!!

Reading many of the posts I realize how fortunate I've been with Marlin guns. Got a 39A when I was 13 years old living on Elmendorf AFB in Alaska. We had an indoor rifle range on the base and I was able to walk to it at night carrying my rifle for a couple of hours of shooting. That gun followed my family to our next duty station at Clovis, N.M. where I could hunt rabbits and prairie dogs. Our next move was to Illinois where junk yard rats and ground hogs were plentiful. Later sold that gun when I was in the Air Force myself.

Fast forward 25 years to Seattle. Met a policeman who had an FFL and he ordered me another 39A for cost plus $10. However instead of the 39A I received a 39M. Very happy with it. Lived outside of Seattle in the Cascade Mountains at the time so it was a great woods walking gun. Ten years later, moved to Spokane and got the urge for a 30-30. Bought a 336 with beautiful wood. Although I no longer hunt, both guns give me a great deal of enjoyment just handling them and shooting at dirt clogs.
