    Hi - I'm from NorthEast Florida and took up hunting again after MANY years of inactivity. Used my 13 year-old son as my front line excuse. Bought us both a Marlin 336CS ('89 and '91) 30-30 to use with deer and hogs. He shoots his rifle well, but hasn't seen a deer to shoot at yet. Missed one hog running across a logging road. I've knocked down several deer and hog, from 50 to 120 yards. One buck ran about 40 yards before stopping, but the others just went down where they stood. I can't speak more highly of the guns. Plus they just look like rifles should look, heh? Well, hello, and nice to be here.

    Welcome to the forum. That was a pretty good reason for buying a gun. I will have to remember that one! I'm always looking for excuses .
