Hello my name is Guy (SGM), I retired from the U.S. Army in 2008 after 28 yrs service as a Sergeant Major. I have two Marlin .22LR rifles. A Model 25N that I bought in 1989 and a Model 39A that I bought in 2009. Now that I'm retired, I have plenty of time to shoot these rifles. I've read a lot of articles from this forum and decided to sign up.
