Hello all,

I just recently (as in yesterday) bought my first ever gun. It is a Marlin model 60 .22 long rifle. I had the pleasure of going out this morning and firing off a few rounds through it. Loads of fun and it seems like it is going to be the perfect "starter" gun.

Anyway I am a gun noob and just happened to stumble across these forums. I am sure I will be asking a lot of dumb questions but we all have to start some where.:)

Thanks, Dave Johnson.

Welcome Dave and look forward to reading your posts! You made a good purchase. The Marlin Mod. 60 action has been around for decades and is a very accurate rifle. It's refreshing to see a newcomer to the dwindling fraternity of gun owners in this country!

Dave is really kewl, him and I are looking for the best bang for your buck when it comes to handguns. I'm a handgun n00b. Love my riffles and my shotguns, just never owned a handgun. What's some good models for n00bs.

Thanks John

:confused:

Enjoy your new toy Dave. I got my first .22 single shot in 1959. Got my first shotgun in 1958. I killed alot more game with the .22 than I did the shotgun, after I got the .22. At present I have no idea how many guns I have. By the time you get to be an old man like I am I hope you can be so fortunate.

I took Dave to see my Pop's collection and he has too many to count. Dave is a really cool guy and will be a big help in keeping our rights here in Iowa.
