Great story, and a great heirloom for you to have. The types of experiences that your grandfather had used to be commonplace for many Americans, but disappearing as the march from rural living to caged (city) living continues. Thanks for sharing the story.

Thanks for sharing a special family story! Many times l have looked at some old guns at gun shows and and have thought, if that gun could only talk how interesting a story it could tell. Well thanks to you, your old family Marlin kinda did.

I have and old Marlin Model 29 that my Grandfather used on the farm. When l am no longer around to appreciate it, it will go to my son that has my grandfathers same birthdate. (which happens to be today) Hopefully he will pass it along to his soon to be nine year old son.

Great story! I can hardly believe I chose to read your post on the day my Grandpa and son where born.
