Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
A Marlin 75C tube fed auto-loader bought out of the Sears/Roebuck Catalog back in the early 80's. I saved every penny I earned doing odd jobs for about 1 year to buy that rifle. Delivered directly to our home address when I was 13 years old.
Take care when you get information.
The truth is generally seen, rarely heard.
