Hello yall, and thanks for letting me be apart of the forum. Short story about me. OIF vet served from 07-14. Native Texan of the European variety. I've owned several Marlins over the years some that have been traded off. I currently own a 92' 336CS 30-30, a 00' Ported 1895 in 45-70, a 06' 1894C .357, and now as of this week a Ruger made 1895 SBL. All have been great shooters that often are used for hog hunting here. Well the SBL hasn't made it out yet, but will. Anyway I'm glad to be here and learn as much as I can.
