Howdy, ke6gkc Bruce, and welcome to the camp from northeast Indiana. Climb down; tether your mount; loosen the cinch and c'mon over here by the fire and have a set-down on this block of ash. Coffee is in the pot. Help yourself. You empty it; you re-fill it. I noticed a most serious lack of pictorial evidence of any Marlin products you claim to own. Without pictorial evidence, some here would think you're just spinning a big windy.
