The first gun I bought when I turned legal was a new Marlin golden 39A anniversary model 22 rifle in 1971. Shot the bejabbers out of that gun for 10 years and after I moved to Indianapolis someone broke into my house and stole it. Really ticked me off. A few years later my father bought me a used 39A to replace it but it just was not the same gun. Still over the years I have picked up used guns that caught my eye and a couple weeks ago I went through the gun safes and discovered more of my rifles were Marlin than any other brand. Never really sorted them out before but it looks like I must be a Marlin guy. Prefer 22 Lever guns but have a couple model 74, some larger calibers and a Papoose although I have not fired that one yet. Still looking for good older Marlins but they are harder to find.
