Default Marlin 795

I was looking for a Model 60, but there seem to be a drought of them in the South Bay, but I did find a 795 on sale at Big 5 for $129 after the rebate. I picked that up and a scope. I've owned handguns for 25 years, but this is my first rifle.

Took it to the range and was shooting some Remington Golden Bullet and had several misfires. The firing pin struck, but no bang. Fed the bullets in again and they fired fine a second time. Not sure what the issue is, whether it doesn't like that ammo or what.

Haven't mounted the scope yet either. Not quite sure how. I'll figure it all out eventually, but if you've got info about the misfires or scope mounting, please let me know.
