Hey there... I am relatively new to firearm ownership, however have always been interested to a degree and grew up around them, just could never afford it, nor had the time to shoot. Anyways I had a couple questions regarding a few firearms I inherited from a deceased family member, and just figured I would say hello anyways.

My guns are my Glock 27 generation 4 which I purchased as my first handgun and am in the process of applying for a CCW in my area. I have now fallen in love with my friends Glock 20 and am deciding between that or the Glock 22. Either way, I will be buying another glock soon... I also need a few suggestions on a decently priced shotgun for misc home defense/recreation purposes.

Now I came across a 1957 Marlin 336Rc lever action chambered in 35 Remington. It's in pretty decent working condition, except for the slight crack in the stock. I am in the process of tracking down a replacement stock for it. I know it can be done. It's the straight stock not the pistol grip. It's a beautiful gun and I love the lever action.

I also came across a BEAUTIFUL, Immaculate, 1959 Beretta Jaguar Model 75 .22lr. It's a really, really cool gun, and a blast to shoot needless to say. I only have one 8 round magazine, and am looking online for more if I can track them down.

The last gun I inherited was appears to be a Japaneses Arisaka with the chrysanthemum and Nagoya Arsenal markings? Ill snap some pics and post them...

Anyways, like I said I am glad to be here and appreciate your input!

Welcome to the party and the end of having money in your account!

Remington 870 Express or Mossberg 500 or 590 are great HD shotguns. If you have a Big 5 near you they put them on sale all the time, you can keep an eye in the Commercial Sales section to see when the deals are going on.

Try gunbroker for the extra magazines for your Beretta. Nothing beats the expensive shooting blues loke a good .22.
