First rifle I bought was a 10/22. Don't know how many rds. been run thru it now. A couple of years ago I bought a older marlin model 60 for $40 at a garage sale. Looks damn near new, the old guy couldn't have shot it much.

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
