Thanks people. I've read all the discussion about the 795 and it has convinced me to get one. Went to Big5 and laid down my money. The Big5 price of $149 is still good until May 25th and the Marlin rebate is good through December 2009.
I'm looking forward to doing a review between it and my old Deluxe Ruger 10/22 that I've had since 1989. I've had some luck finding rimfire ammo recently so with these two I can keep my shooting skills going.
