A Production Ruger Made Marlin Model 1895 SBL Bye, bye Miss American Pie

03/06/22 – After sixteen years of writing about Ruger, within a broader mix of manufacturers, I apparently fell from grace and was shut out of the Marlin introduction. So I sat and watched them feed “Better Guns & Groceries”, “Hank the Dancing Cop’s YouTube Channel”, etc. T&E firearms and information, while letting me twist in…

Marlin’s 444 Marlin Part I Another Big Bore choice...

If you told me that the 444 Marlin is the best cartridge for medium to large game, 50 to 1500 lbs, I would probably say, “Uh-huh”. If you told me the 444 Marlin serves no distinct purpose, I would probably do the same. In a world of cartridges and rifles with so much application overlap,…
