I’ve got mine out on it’s annual deer hunting week. If it’s really well behaved it’ll get to go bear hunting this fall.

I've got a JM G model. Bought it new in 2000 probably. I haven't shot it in nearly a decade. Once life slows down, I look forward to re-learning that gun. It certainly is beautiful. I'd love to go bear hunting with it.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

A friend had a Browning 1886 years ago that he let me heft, but not shoot. A fantastic rifle.

I'm sure he sold it after his heart surgery, but he didn't tell me and I didn't pry, knowing how much he loved that gun.

I have two JM Marlins. One has a Marble's peep, and the other just a William's peep. When i shoot them, I start singing "somewhere over the rainbow", because that's where the bullet will land, given the trajectory. I do like to roll big hogs with the 325 gr Hornady at about 2000 fps, but only inside 200 yards, mostly inside 100.

That is some carbine. Very nice. There is just something sexy about the lever action carbine. Congrats

Found a Sharps for cheap. Holds one round of 45-70.

Bought a revolver later. It holds twelve rounds of 45-70.

If a lever gun was able to present itself someday...
