    Hello, I'm new to this forum and do have a new Marlin I just bought but I am far from new to Marlins or guns in general. The one I recently bought is a model 795 that I plan to work with my 15 year old daughter on honing her skills. She's just about too big for the Henry Mini-Bolt I started her on although I still like plinking with it. My other Marlin rifle is a model 60. I do like 22's. I still have the first Marlin I bought new in 1967 as a 14 year old. It is a single shot .410 bolt action. I also have the 20 gauge 3-shot bolt-action my Dad bought new that same year so we could hunt together. Both are still in like new condition. Neither one has been shot much. I finished off the original box of .410s last summer and the original box of 20s from 1967 is missing 5 rounds.
