Happy Birthday THR Marlin 39 Club!

Three years ago Nem started the thread that formed The High Road Marlin 39 club. In three years there have been almost 2700 posts across 107 pages. It's a rifle that a lot of folks have a passion for. I've made a lot of friends there and learned a lot too.

In the spirit of the Club I shot a 3x5 card (the official target of the very first 39 club shooting match) and inspired by what Captain Hardy did with his Model 1897 tried to write 39 on the card. It is a lot more difficult than it looks. I burned up some ammo getting two that were somewhat legible - if'n you squint just right that is...
