    hello Steve, and welcome to the Marlin Forum. glad you joined us.

    allthough we are mainly oriented towards Marlins, please check out our sub-frum on other guns. we all love our Marlins, but many of us own many different brands and types of firearms. please check it out.

    BTW, i read your post on "spray on finishes", very informative and different! nice post.

    Welcome Steve!! :)
    Glad to have you as part of our friendly group.
    Like many others here, I love my lever guns but I own a variety of other firearms. I'm retired and in my mid 60's and have bought, sold, traded guns and reloaded since I was 21 years old. I have downsized my collection in the past few years but I have owned over 300 guns in total.
    I grew up in the country and hunted beside my Dad since I was old enough to carry a BB gun. Due to age and health concerns, the hunting has dwindled but I still enjoy a day at the range as time allows. I run hot and cold on my interest but for now, I've focused more on shotgun sports, mostly Sporting Clays. I like the idea of paying for 50 birds and then walking a 90 minute course where I can shoot 50 times. A lot different than walking the fields all day and shooting a dozen times. ;)
    Jump in and join the fun.
