    lots of different ones. marlins are just a part of the collection. as i enjoy firearms in general, my collection is varied and will always be. marlin makes great rifles and has been for years, but there are so many good firearms out there. i try not to limit myself to only one brand or type, and because of this, my collection will continue to be an evolution in collecting.

    i will say this, i don't collect or keep firearms for them to be closet queens or just to say that i own a particular firearm. if a gun doesn't function, perform as desired, or doesn't meet my expectations, it is soon gone and replaced. everything i own gets shot at some time or another, some just get shot more than others.

    Not a lot of others that I enjoy using currently. The nylon 77 I got when I was around 6 years old still takes care of squirrels and woodchucks .
    Wanted to switch up last fall and instead of my 3 marlins do a wrenchester season. A couple 1894s and a newer Brownchester 1895 built in '84.
    Time , $ , and not enough range time to get comfortable added up to deciding it wasn't gonna happen that season. :(
    But , the oldest of the three spoke up and almost pleaded with my to not put her back in the safe , she wanted to get out in the woods for some fresh air.
    Well being the kind hearted soul I am , I couldn't deny a sweet old girls wish ( she's around 105 years old )
    She did get to hang out at camp and on nice days got to get out and enjoy time in the woods . Unfortunately , no deer or bear for her last year , we'll give her another go this season ;)

    My firearm interests go all over not just marlins. Or rifles.

    1894, that is an awesome looking winchester! doesn't look like it's 105 years old and a 38-55 to boot! i would love to shoot that rifle. very nice!

    gater, it looks like your collection of firearms is as varied as mine! i too like different type and calibers. i mostly am partial to bolt action centerfires, but stray from that path at times. my next in line purchase that i'm looking at is a lever action rifle chambered in 44 mag. to go with the revolver that i have.

    Gator, liberal definition would say you have an arsenal, conservative says you have a gun collection.

    Which do you have? :)

    Yea...but Axxe55 and I have already started Manufacturer specific threads for just that reason. There isn't an Henry or EA thread if you want to start one...S&W, Ruger, Winchester, Walther, Stoeger, Kel Tec, Beretta, Bersa, Remington, Springfield, Glock, Colt, etc. are covered in the "other guns" sub-forum !

    Agreed. I never shot my Rem 700 30-06; maybe 200rd in 20 years. So I traded it for a better bear gun, a S. Blackhawk.
