    Hello everyone,

    Just found the forum while googling. I'm a Marlin enthusiast, I have a 39a dated 1959, a 336 in .35 Rem, 308 MX and a 444 as well. I'd like to add a .32 Sp, .375 Win and any of the other discontinued calibers...and I guess a 30/30.

    Welcome aboard Steve.
    I really love NC. The mountains are beautiful and the people are really friendly.
    My mother (passed) grew up in Goldsboro. My father (also passed) met and married her while stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB during WW-II. Not much of the family left, at least the ones that I was close too. The family plantation has been divided so many times that only the big house and out buildings remain. Some lady bought it, turned it into a boutique and had it added to the Historical Society Registry. I haven't been there for many years.

    Welcome aboard leper65...you have a couple really nice calibers in your collection so far. Sounds like you are already hooked since you are drooling over some new ones.

    I was stationed at Seymour Johnson from '1992 to 2006 when I retired. I was fortunate to be hired back in as a civilian in 2007. I'm in Goldsboro almost everyday for work.

    Not many of the old plantation homes left, which is too bad, they have a lot of character. I do wish we were closer to the mountains, the summers would be much nicer. July and August are nasty hot/humid. I'm from around Buffalo, NY and even after 20 years here, I'm not used to it.

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone.
