I decided to get the first two guns that I ever called my own out of the safe for a trip down memory lane today. The memories inspired a photo shoot... and here are the results. My Marlin 336 in .35 Remington and My Marlin 780 .22. I got the 336 for my twelfth birthday and then the 780 for Christmas about six weeks later. I gotta give it to ol' Dad... he has good taste.

Both are very nice looking rifles. Your dad does have good tastes. The lever gun especially is very pretty.

That 336 is a fine lookin' iron. Please tell me that she makes meat each deer season.

Thanks y'all. You know... back when I was a LEO (early - mid 90's) and was heavily into the whole tactical thing, I had thought about selling these to fund other firearms. In fact, I did sell a Savage .222 over 20 gauge and a Savage double barrel 20 gauge shotgun (both also gifts from my father) during that time. I am so glad that I didn't sell the Marlins and I am so sad that I did sell the savages. Those are the only guns I have ever sold... I will never sell another if I can help it. I will definitely NEVER sell a gun to fund another gun ever again.
