    Today I purchased my first firearm. It's an XT-22VR. I'll still be waiting 28 days before I can bring it home to the safe. I'll put some picks up after my first trip to the range.

    Love the 22

    I got a Savage MKII FV, the Savage rifle similar to your Marlin and I had a heck of a time choosing. Eventually I had to close my eyes and pick because it was either that or buy both. I am extremely impressed with my rifle and how it shoots with any ammo. I am sure yours will do as well. I am glad you have taken that first step. When you get to know your rifle, take the next step...a 22 pistol. You're gonna have some fun now. In the mean time...don't chew your nails off waiting in anticipation for the day you can bring baby home. Just do as I did...get out the Red Ryder and shoot holes in the screens. :eek:

    hombre...Have you priced a "Red Ryder" lever these days. Fetching almost $50:eek: The do teach trajectory and windage! Young eyes can follow the slow-moving BB and adjust their hold if the first or 2nd shot is off the mark.

    That's $50 (w/tax) that could be spent on some .22LR rounds, powder, bullets and primers for more important chores!

    OH...and BTW, welcome to the new folks from the Southern Hemisphere! Sad to know you have to wait to get a tool like the new Marlin. Our Govt. is attempting prohibitions and their efforts aren't sitting well among American gun owning sportsmen.

    Welcome to the forum. It's good to see someone from down under. It's been awhile, since I've talked to anyone from Australia. The last person I spoke to bought a 1894 Century Limited off of me. It took quite awhile for it to get from the U.S. but he got it in great shape. Now it's my turn to ship me to Australia!!!
