Hi gang, I'm from the mitten state. I've been shooting Marlins all my life, started out with the model 60, and just recently, well a couple of years ago bought one for my two daughters, they love it and so do I. I'm married, disabled, was a chef for close to 30 years. I've lived in a dozen states, traveled the world thanks to the Navy, and I"m very family oriented. Hope to meet all of you on the boards sooner or later. You'll find that I'm very honest and open. I shoot at camp Perry every year since 95 and look foward to going every year. I'm a motorcycle enthusiast, some call me a biker, some just call me crazy bob, either way its pretty accurate.
