A comment by the dissident frogman on Friday open gun advice thread
Val: indeed, I've not reached 50 yet. Don't know what I'll do when I'll get to that venerable age, as a rifle might not be enough - buy a cannon maybe?
Jason: I have many cowboy fantasies as well, but I was under the impression that Winchester closed the shop on their legendary lever-action rifles?
I thought maybe going the Marlin way, as I've heard they were good rifles, even though they don't have the same Far West aura as Winchester. Any happy Marlin owner in the area?
