    I have two Henrys a 22 Mag and the 22lr. The 22lr shoots shorts, longs and long rifles which is great if you want stealth,because you can uses cb shorts and super calibraies

    For now I'm think of it as a just in case gun for the back window of my truck.

    try and find a good used older Marlin or Winchester. personally i like the looks of the Winchester, but i think the action is a little stronger on the Marlin. have you given any thought to what caliber? the Marlin probably comes in many more than the Winchester, from pistol calibers all the way up to large bore calibers.

    For "just in case" and fun shooting, a Rossi in .357. .38 and .358 ammo cheap enough to become proficient and plenty of power for deer to 100 yards. I've had several pistol caliber Marlins and much prefer the 1892 Rossi action.

    Ok, look on the barrel just in front of the reciever if it is JM oriifmark, you got a marlin.If it is REM in a circle you got a remington made marlin. So what did you get?

    Also take a look at marlinowners.com a great resource for marlin owners.
