new to the forum but have owned marlin firearms for over 20 years. the first rifle i was given a marlin 25n. i still have it and will teach my kiddos how to shoot on it when they get old enough. recently i picked up a 795 from a friend and can't wait to get out and run it thru its paces. I am from the Louisville, KY area. Born and raised here. Been serving in the army for the past 16 years.
