Marlin 1895 Dark Series The anatomy of a dragon slayer

05/03/2020 Audio Prologue: The Marlin 1895 Dark reminds me of my once favorite heavy hitter, a Mauser bolt action with a hog’s back full stock, a 20.5″ Douglas barrel and chambered for the 375 Ruger.

Marlin’s 1895 Trapper 45-70 Gov’t Sometimes a little less means a whole lot more...

  The snow is gone, with the exception of drift accumulation, and now it is easy to see what outdoor work needs to be done. I don’t mind. It puts me out in the fresh air and makes it easier to get in those ten thousand steps each day without resorting to running like a…
