Default My Youngest Son Bought his First Rifle Today

A very nice used Marlin in 35 Remington. He picked up 2 boxes of ammo. I helped him sighting it in. It was shooting way right and high at 25 yards. A few a taps with a brass punch for windage and a couple of steps down on the ladder put it almost dead center. We took it out 65 yards and he was putting holes in a 6 inch circle with open sights off hand. Good enough for deer.

I was at the gun show in Tulsa today saw 3 Marlin 336 in 35 Remington 425 to 475 all three looked to be in pretty fair shape.

He paid right at 425.00 for his. I am pretty sure it is a pre Remington acquisition. Not a mark on it. I am trying to get him interested in reloading now. I am going to introduce him to Trail Boss and 357 pistol bullets for some cheap plinking. Work that action and really slick it up.

A friend of mine has an older 336 in 35 Rem. I don't need it but I want it. Have expressed an interest in buying it several times. He told me a month ago he made his will and I will get that Marlin. What a nice guy.

I helped him load up 3 last night. First time he has expressed an interest in reloading so I jumped on the chance. I told him lets shoot those to do a quick safety check today. If all looks good then he will load up all of the spent brass with his first load and we head out to the range.

Set up a 3 ring binder and everything so he can keep his notes, etc...
