Default They Sold Quickly!

I am now just reading emails I received today. Whittaker's Guns sends me Daily Deals. Today they had 444 Marlin H&R Handis for $99, yes $99. Anyone here get one before they sold out?

Thanks, Dinny

That's a deal, one of my employees is a Handi Hater, but his brother found a 7mm-08 at Academy for 69.99 and all of the sudden he is a fan

I would've picked one up "just in case" I were to get picked for the moose lottery this year.

I guess that means you didn't get one? It's not a caliber I like, but, at that price; I would have bought one just because.

I'm pretty sure I would have bought all of them.

I bought mine some 2 years back when new old stock was getting cleared out. 210$ for the .444 marlin and 240$ for the .300BO. Took me a while to realise that there was no reason I had to push those rounds or suffer with recoil. This spring I loaded up some 220 gr cast boolits with .44 mag powder loads, and put them in the .444 marlin. 4.6 grains of titewad worked fine as did the same of Red Dot. Very low sound, recoil was just a soft nudge, but you could hear a pretty good THUMP from the far end. Was having scope issues that day, so only fired a few. Will get back one of these days and get it zero'd again. To me, now, the .444 marlin is one of my 2 favorites. Wild to mild, heavy boolits to light, cheap to load for. Brass is a bit pricey but I look at brass as a long term investment. Like tools, got to have them to do much. Could I sell mine for 500$ today? Not a doubt in the world I could. But I would not let it go for 4 times that much money. Don't think I would sell it if someone offered me 5 grand for it.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
