    Thumbs up New Lever Guy from central Florida

    Howdy, I'm a member over at MarlinOwners and thought I would sign up here - great site!

    I'm very interested in defensive carry so this should be fun and enlightening. I'm mostly a lever guy but I have handguns, shotguns and could even go AR. Hope to learn some from the members here. Some of my collection that makes up my defense.

    Marlin 1895M - 450 Marlin



    Marlin 1895G - 45/70



    Marlin 444P - 444



    Marlin 336D - 35 Remington



    Marlin 1894P - 44 Magnum

    Welcome!

    "Posing" your rifles on that fencepost illustrates that the balance point of those Marlins is just slightly forward of the trigger - darned close to ideal, in my book. I picked up a barely-used 336W for a song at a gun show a couple of years ago, and it's a hoot to shoot. Just about ready to start reloading .30-30 with lead bullets to get some low-cost trigger time with that gun.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
