    My name is Austin and I am the community Administrator.

    Being born and raised in Texas I have been a firearms fanatic my entire life and have always enjoyed lever actions for as long as I've been shooting.

    I know Marlins aren't only known for lever actions, but that is what I enjoy.

    Currently I have a Rossi lever action in a .44 mag, a gun given to me by my Grandmother when I turned 18, but will be making the conversion to Marlin very soon.

    Firearms are in my blood, I grew up sitting behind the booth/counter of my Grandparents stores and gun shows they attended. My first rifle (aside from the .177 pellet rifle from Daisy) was a pump action .22 and I carried it everywhere with me.

    From there I've been buying and trading my entire life.

    If you have any questions or think a category should be added please let me know and I will get it taken care of.

    Thanks for joining!

    Thank you for the welcome! I've always been a Marlin fan which might be because one of the first rifles I learned to shoot with was a Marlin 80 .22 owned by my great grandfather.

    I currently own 4 Marlins in 22LR, 22Mag, 30-30 and 30-06....I think I need a shotgun. A model 90 16ga would be AWESOME!

    Welcome Johnny.
    Marlinitus is a progressive illness but most often - not fatal.
    Glad to have you with us. Maybe you can share some of those stories of hunting Texas with your Marlin.
