And another Marlin 60 here. Mine is a Marlin Glenfield Model 60 bought in 1970 which I still have. Always has been a great little .22 and very accurate. Years later I got another Marlin 60 with the shorter barrel.

Marlin Model 60. Then a Ruger Mini-14. What a POS that was. Sent it back to Ruger, they rebuilt it. I promptly traded the "new" Mini for a Colt HBAR. I never looked back.

My dad use to talk about Otasco. He said it was a pretty cool store. He still has a Browning 30-06 BAR that my grandma bought my pa way back. Surprisingly he found its receipt not to long ago. I heard there was one left open in Border Texas.

If I knew then, what I know now, my first semi

would have been a Marlin 60.

I call it "the typewriter", because with

the 'phones on, it sounds just like a

secretary using an electric typewriter,

at full blast.

My first semi auto rifle was a Savage/Westpoint 487t 22 rifle I purchased in the mid 70s at a True Value Hardware store.

SKS.

All my .22 rifles are bolt action.
