My wife asked me the other day what I wanted for our 20 th aniv.. Well I been wanting a levergun to go with my little S&W M60 3". I can't make up my mind between the Marlin 1884c and the Win. Trapper. I'm leaning toward the Marlin due to it's simple design I figure if I take it apart to clean I got at least a even chance of getting it back together. Then there's the Puma it"s so hard to make up my mind. The gun will be used mostly for plinking. Since my back injury hunting is pretty much a thing of the past. I would have to find some a place within a hour of KC with a short walk to my stand then shoot the deer on the side of a hill so I could roll him down hill to my truck. Then I could tie a rope to him and drag him to the check station.
