Bolt, Lever, semi

What action do you have the most of?  For me, it's the lever action.  And I don't particularly like lever guns. 

Kinda like Wambi's like for originality, I guess.  And I can't pass up a good deal, or even a not so good of a deal.  Ten years ago, after Christmas and deer season, where I live you could pick up a Marlin 336 for a decent price. I believe I paid $225 for a pawn shop rifle, the one with a scab on the stock.  And my original Mauser with a Lyman 48 sight I got for about the same price.  Not a cigarette gun, either.  As I said, can't look past a good deal.

The 336 is in good shape other than the scab.  Made in 1977, as was my 1894 Marlin. 

Since I don't hunt, I have some degree of originality which I get semi-obsessed. .  I won't put a scope on my levers although I did at one time.  They shoot fine. It's an entirely 'nother game with open sights.

I re-read this and realize I'm rambling like the old man I am. 
Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
