I haven't bought any firearms in a while but today I stopped at one of my favorite gun
stores and found a Marlin 1895 45/70 Govt. 22" in stock. The price was right so out the
door it went with me. This rifle will join my deer hunting rotation and will come in handy
in areas where bears have been seen just in case I run into one that is in a less than
friendly mood. I will be looking for a scope next week and after I get it sighted in, it will
be ready to go. The other rifle in the picture is my faithful Marlin 336 30-30 which was
manufactured in 1983.
