Hi all,

I've been messing with lever actions for a little over 45 years, although the first 7 or so of that was with an old Daisy "Spittin Image" Model 1894 BB gun. Gotta admit that I didn't own a Marlin levergun until about 18 years ago and back in those days I didn't think much of 'em compared to the other brand. Just a looks and feel kind of thing, no need to tell me it didn't make much sense.
Well, times change and so do tastes and all.
Marlin leverguns have come and gone to where I've owned more than a dozen, had up to half that number in the safe at once and I've pared it down to 3 right now. Even shot one of the two deer I bagged last fall using my .444
There are a couple .30-30s on shelves that are tempting me, so that census is subject to change at any moment.

Seems like every once in a while there's a thread from here linked on another shooting forum, so I figured it was time to join up and eliminate the middleman, see what else was going on.
