Just the job if your time machine takes you too far back.. :wink: I only ever fired one once, the guys at the range warned that the guy who's Marlin it was loaded his shells way beyond safe pressure, I must say it certainly felt like it would ruin a T Rex's day..... :lol:
From his weapons on the open road no man should step one pace away, you don't know for certain when you're out on the road when you might have need of your spear.

I owned two Marlins in 45/70. Back when I was around twenty I stoked up the loads to shoot through my first one and was that ever a mistake. The rifle was so light and I was about 120 pounds soaking wet so I had no natural padding back then. I quickly picked up the bad habit of flinching when I pulled the trigger. I still catch myself to this day flinching every now and then even if I'm just shooting a rimfire. As long as I concentrate on just shooting I don't flinch but if I'm not paying close attention the flinch pops up. I wish I would of had one that was ported and that may have tamed it a bit. Now at 54 I'm good with lighter loads because I'm not chasing buffalo or T-rex's.

I claim I've build the first Dinosaur range east of the Mississippi, you out west people I don't know about you but east of the Mississippi in Yankee land people are still are pretty tight ...
I cut into the tail, build a bone structure out of conduit, lined with 4 inch flexible plastic drainage tube closed the ends with rubber gloves and put it together up his ...
I only cut the tail (butt) because I could wrap a small tight bungee cord around it and still blow him up. I then started with small holes at in the head feed and rear end to lock in the "bones". The rest then was 3 CASES of great stuff, should have embedded some tannerite because you can shoot this sucker all day and he's not going anywhere.
Great Stuff is that, I lifted a 2 1/2 car garage with multiple 10 ton jacks( and digging holes), drilled holes though the concrete and shot 5 cans under one corner and it hasn't dropped in 3 years, I don't think it will.
