Just pulled the marlin 30AS out of the safe. This was my first deer rifle. It still looks great. As a kid, I shot several deer with it and one rancher actually had feral goats running loose on his place that we harvested. I haven't used it in awhile. I think I will take it out this year for wild pigs and whitetail! Thank y'all for the discussions this forum made me realize what a good rifle I had collecting dust.
