Well, I better get all these boring rifles out of the way, you know, leave the good things until the last... keep the audience interested with expectation!



Here is the first rifle I ever bought (not owned, as you'll be seeing a .30-06 soon that my dad gave to me when younger).

This is a marlin .22 LR I bought from a pawn shop when I was 17. I had to have my brother buy it for me (I wasn't 18 yet). I'm not really sure why I bought it, figured I needed a .22 I guess. I think I paid something like $130 for it, and if it wasn't new, it was like new. I cannot remember the exact price, because that seems kind of high.

Its a great little bolt action .22 that is pretty accurate, and simple. I use it for teaching the kids now.... another rifle that will probably never be sold!

Yes, it is in excellent condition. Most of my firearms are in really nice shape. This one, and the shotgun (see Mel's stuff: part 3) do not see serious field work. But then again, my serious field work rifles have senthetic stocks, and are generally set up better to handle abuse.... but hey, wood sure looks pretty....

yep the wood does look pritty
some of my rifles have survived me a year now lol and like 20,000 rounds
in theory they should last indefinitely but id think that eventually there is a limit to how many rounds you can put through them
might need to replace guns or barrels atleast every few years heh

is all of that stuff the origional parts?
