Variety is the spice of life. I have been blessed with some variety in the form of a Marlin 1895. You can read about my exploration of the big bore Marlin at; http://bigbored.onfinite.com/
The big bore experience has enriched my shooting enjoyment. The contrast between a 45-70 and 22 lr is vast though I find them complimentary. The Mountie greatly sharpens my technique by allowing inexpensive repetition. Each shot with the 1895 requires focus and this mitigates mindless wasting of rimfire ammo.
I am blessed.
