I learned to shoot using the Marlin waaaaay back in my childhood. My Grandfather gave it to me for Christmas. I put thousands of rounds through it. It was accurate and fun. When in my twenties, my apartment was gutted by fire, and the rifle suffered mightily. My Grandfather restored it a gave it back to me, and I continued to use it for many more years, its accuracy unaffected. Sold it during hard times, and miss it a lot. I have a 10/22 now, and while it's a fine rifle, I wish I still had the Marlin as well.
