More unfortunate losses in that boating accident...

Brought home my latest Marlin yesterday - a late-model 60SS laminate stock.

It would have nicely accompanied the other Marlins that were lost in that tragic accident:

(3) 99M1's - 2 with original rear sights
1 - 989M2
(2) 39A - 1947 and 1955
(2) 70P, includes 1 DU model
1-70PSS
1 Model 60 Alamo Anniversary edition
(2) 75C carbines
(2) 60's in ATI stocks
1 - 995
1 - 99 Deluxe
(2) Golden 65's
1 - 60 modified to load from a box magazine
1 - Western Auto Supply Revelation Model 120
2 or 3 more Model 60 parts rifles

And that's just the 22LR's. There's Magnum and centerfire stuff at the bottom of that lake too!

I gave my very nice example of the 99m to my exwife. She loves it.

We were still together at the time. When I brought it home I explained how I had wanted one for over 40 years and now I had a nice one. Her response?

"You might want to keep looking because that one is mine!"

Having tried to get her into shooting many times so I was happy to give it to her. Like many women she is a pretty natural shooter. Almost to a person I have found it easier to teach a woman to shoot than most men. Why.

Attention to detail.

Listens to instruction and follows up.

Most of all they do not let their egos get in the way! I was trying to teach one very competitive middle aged male to shoot. He not only tried to out shoot me (I had been shooting, a lot, for 35 years at the time) but he even argued with me about which finger to use on the TRIGGER! As far as I know that was the first and last time he ever shot a gun!
