    Sorry to hear about your folks. Glad to hear that this forum and your new hobby are helping U to get by. Enjoy, as you found out, firearms are like potato chips, can't have just one! BTW, keep the lead flying!:)

    Welcome to the forum. I have 3 Glocks but one day I should probably add a Gen 4 G22 to my vault. Nice looking rifle by the way.

    Welcome aboard Stonebridge from the GREAT STATE OF IOWA! I'll bet we are not that far apart geographically? The way you're acquiring firearms you should join the "Bakers Dozen Buying Club" run by Brisk44, you only have to purchase 13 guns per year for membership.:eek: Fleetwood and Brisk are already a Lifetime members!:D

    pkcgbifaid - thanks man..we had a blast!
    double d - thank you for the compliment! yesterday and today will be the 10th or 11th weekend in a row :)
    Jack404 - in my opinion it handles great and im not a big guy..the recoil with the Gen4 is a lot more tame i think.
    Jacksonco - thank you..i really enjoyed the rifle yesterday..fun little .22 when you get that G22 Gen4 you will be very pleased

    yesterday was a blast, literally! i was pretty focused on the new model 60 so the glock didnt see much action (100 rds) managed to put about 250-300 through the marlin though. the range is on my friends "nature preserve" that is maintained to support widlife..we ended up walking the woods for a couple hours..loved it! i have a few pics to share with the class. a few of a little propane tank that met the .40 a few times (more today) and my henry glodenboy h004 and my pride and joy, my dads smith & wesson .22 revolver, i never got to talk to him about this pistol so if anyone could shed some light on it for me i would really appreciate it. he got sick in the early 60's so i know its pre-'65. i would never sell it, but i often wonder about its value. well..enough chit chat..pic time!

    No meaningful input but nice looking piece Stone, I like it. The henry too, always liked their looks (on the wall) but I go with the Marlin 60's & 70's (795) for practicality. I like to keep my eye on the target and pull the trigger.
