I have been chasing Marlins for reasonable prices, but not had much luck.

Have you guys seen any Marlin Darks, or any NIB Marlins for sale anywhere?

When Ruger rights this ship, I am sure they will be available at Dad with 3 kids at home prices.

Shot a friends 1894 Marlin Dark in 44 Magnum, and I really want one.

He paid $850 for it in March. He could probably sell it used now for $1500.

BWW, are you only looking for Marlin? And only 44 mag? I see Marlins on a fairly reg basis, but it might be anything. I saw a 41 mag this summer go for what I thought an extravagant price of $450.

Well you haven't been paying close attention on Marlin prices.

450 for a Marlin 94 in 41 would have been a steal. I would have brought it in a heart beat.

I guess so, I still think of them as a $250 rifle. That's what I gave for a marlin in 375 win a little bit ago and thought I paid dearly for it!

I am doing something I haven't done in a while on Wednesday, I am going to make the gunshops loop.

One of the locals that has a lot of Winchesters, Marlins and Savage 99's told me that he isn't going to the Tulsa show since they cancelled it.

I found a new 45-70 Marlin stainless GBL with the rail on it for $1100. I actually think that is a good price.

The only 44 Mag guns I can find are Rossi M92.

Just a month ago my nephew asked if I was interested in a couple Marlins a co-worker was selling. Safe queens,but they had the safety so I wasn't interested. A 30-30 at $350 and a 444 at $375. He said they looked new except for a couple dings in the stocks. I had no clue they are bringing the kind of money you guys are talking, would have been a good investment after all.

FISH!!

Heed the words of Winston Smith in Orwell's 1984:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right."

They'd probably be worth $500 each in todays market.

The $1100 Marlins are the tacticool type ones.

You need to educate them in cost, benefit analysts.

And not to go to collage just have the experience.

Then not to pay for it just to go.

Saying no is some times best.

I paid my own way, too, Seth, but wish I hadn't spent the money on that one year of law school.
Lucky for me my daughter had a full ride at Baylor.

I have four daughters, one is married to a Sailor and for the most part has paid for the majority of her nursing education.

The other 3 are 5, 7, and 9. Education isn't forever long away but it is going to be a while.

Between my disabled veteran status, and the fact that I served 20 years they should have the majority of their education paid for. I am hoping they serve in the military, and hoping they attend one of the academys or go to Bob Jones University and do ROTC.

I worry about what college will look like in 10 years.

The time will go quick, to quick. Let college work itself out, just enjoy raising those girls.
As far as an $1100 marlin..... it had better do everything for you but oral sex for that money!

Today my life is great grand kids at 2 & 4 and one thats still crawling, All but the baby are riding their own horses, and he is in his mothers lap on her horse..

My advice is buy them a horse! keep them off the street and in the right envioroment. tu2

To divert a bit (sorry BWW)

College is great (for the right person) Trade School is great (for the right person)
Learning how to work your tail off is great for EVERY person.

My 3 kids are a perfect example. My two youngest are not for College. Machinist and a Chef (they have zero interest in a University).

My oldest, yes, Engineering has served him well.

As a teacher, I try and try to help parent's and kids understand that in many cases their child can be more successful going the trade route. It depends on the kid.

Be careful with Marlins made between 2013 and 2015. Many had out of time iron sights and seized receiver plug screws. Ain't no factory warranty now. They were rough as a cob too.

I only have a degree because of the VA. My military trades, and several police academies got me into the career that I have today.

The best gift that I have left to my 3 sons is a good protestant work ethic by example. Those boys will never go hungry due to that disease known as "sit on your ass + wait for someone to give it to me syndrome".

Even with a college education its not a bad idea to study a trade growing up, two of my kids train horses and the other is a horse shoer, but thats other than their college degrees, but if their trade goes bad or they get laid off, the liberals ruin the economy, they can still make a very good living...My granddaughter is a Nurse by trade, but she trains horses and team ropes and made about 25,000 roping, mostly on weekends
this year so for. and she trained a horse that is now being ridden by Wesley Thrope who is #1 this year in the team roping PRCA so far..She also is going to the finals in team roping in Vegas this year. Her hobby extra job pays as much or more than her nursing job..Whatever they learn to do that can back up a trade is always a very large benefit..I btw have had to make a living digging post holes!! thats why I pushed these kids to have a trade to back up an education..A barber, a hair dresser, electrician,plumber whatever..

Worked in my fathers meat market from age 12 to 27. He taught me that the day doesn't end at 5pm. It ends when the work is done. Despite undergrad and an MBA from one of the finest Universities, the lessons my Dad taught me have contributed the most to my success.

In 1970 I walked into a store and plunked down a hundred dollar bill and walked out with a brand new Marlin 336 and some change.
