The first pic is him getting his marlin 60 .22 cal and the second pic is a target we went out and shot . If you look just under the rats eye you will see a big hole that looks like a 3 leaf clover,that was me with my 45 cal glock 21.I put 3 rounds through virtually the same hole at 25 yrds.I was pretty proud of that.

Way to go, Ryan! I love my model 60. I've had it for over 30 years and it's still my favorite .22. Nice shooting too!

Well done on the present, and on the shooting. If you've found a good recipe for reloads, stick with it.

Marlin 60 was my first .22; my parents gave it to me for Christmas many years ago. I had to leave it in the US.

Ryan, that's a very nice Marlin .22 for a Christmas present (plus keep the pictures!). I'm sure he'll love it. Big boy!

Oh what happened with the .410 talk, I think he'll find out the .22 is very practical. Maybe the .410 later? ;)

.....oh, and try to keep the box and all the papers in an attic or wherever, my 1966 Winchester 290 .22 box I BELIEVE is in my mom's attic somewhere, nice to have it all.

Thanks.This may sound funny but I never had any formal firearms training.I learn by asking questions and reading anything I can get my hands on and then I go to my dads where I shoot and practice what ive read or watched.Im no pro but im getting better.I practice drawing,shooting from cover,different stances and distances.I just love doing it.

Same here, not counting my Daisy BB gun at 7 or 8, I found some very old .22 ammo in our barn and started shooting his old Springfield single shot at 11....teaches you every shot counts, then Scout Camp got pretty good. Bought my own gun and practiced a lot, just came naturally, never really liked the scope.

I learned to shoot rifles with my dad's Marlin 60. I still love those things. I have 2 currently. I've had more at times but 2 seems to be enough. Dad was big on teaching us to shoot with shotguns. He didn't want us shooting the neighbors I guess even though there was only one house in range of a .22. I guess that was enough to make him think a shotgun would be better. But by the age of 9 I was starting to shoot and by 10 I was shooting pretty well (for a kid). Truthfully we all learned most of what we needed to know shooting BB guns I guess. Those we got when we were 5 along with a stern warning about not shooting at anyone. If we had done that we would have never seen our BB guns again and we knew it. Dad was big on giving us responsibility early on and I did the same with my kids. Drove my wife crazy when I told my kids they could go anywhere they wanted when they were 14. It worked out great though. Both have great jobs and a good education and neither has ever been in a single bit of trouble.
