... and how about plinker rifles. It took me nearly 80 years to get my first .22 rifle - and not just any rifle, but the .22 rifle, the Marlin 39A. I got my first one couple of months ago, and am itching to shoot the heck out of it, even bought me a neat scope for it, which is still in the box. But wait, it gets better, I've been wanting a 39A Mountie, and got me one last week... not here yet; a beauty, it's a 1968, in about 98+% condition - both are about 98+% condition. About six months ago I got me a .22 Buckmark; put a little red dot scope on it and she's hot! At todays ammo prices, the way to go is .22 - any one here like to have fun with the plinkers?
