Hello from TN!

Post by BluVett »

Hello everyone! My wife and I are a couple of blue dots in eastern TN, recently retired from the Military (me USAF, her Navy).

Just recently came back into the firearms hobby world after a long, long absence. First got into shooting as a teen, owned a couple really nice rifles (I wish I still had!)--a Remington 700 ADL/30-06, and a Winchester 9422M.

We currently own a Taurus G2C and a Marlin XT22 w/a Cabelas 3-9/40 scope. Just ordered a Remington 783 Black Walnut/scope package in .308, should be at my dealer's early this coming week.

Selfishly perhaps, I'll probably tend to be more in the "receive" mode vs "contribute" mode for a bit as we get reacquainted with the hobby.

Thanks for the acceptance to the forum!

--Bill

Welcome!

How do you like the Taurus and Marlin? Make sure to gloat here when you receive that beautiful 308 so we can be green with envy. :mrgreen:

Thanks!! We're impressed with both. We hemmed on hawed a bit on the Taurus, seems like folks don't feel much in the middle of the road on them. Compact, comfortable, seems really well-made. I'll know more when we've had it for a while.

The Marlin's a really nice little plinking rifle. I decided to add an inexpensive scope just, well, because, LOL. But it makes for a pretty sweet little package, and for me anyways, the affordability of 22LR makes a great choice for range time, which, sadly, I sorely need.

Great! Can't wait to hear about the 308. I have been looking at the Remington 783 for a while now.

I like my Taurus... all of 'em! :D
