This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants.

NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Marlin Model 75C

.
The side of the rifle barrel reads:
Marlin Firearms Co.
North Haven, Ct. USA
Model 75C .22LR

The Marlin Model 75C is a brush gun, a carbine version of the Marlin Model 60; it holds 13-rounds of .22 long rifle in the tubular magazine.

It has been a good long time since this rifle has potted a big red squirrel. Times change, we all will pass on and the memories of days afield will die with us. Today many gray haired kids chewed over memories that had a bit of a sorrowful aftertaste. According to the AP, Marlin Firearms is closing its Connecticut plant with a loss of 265 American jobs. Perhaps it is not as dire as it sounds; the AP story does say that Marlin Firearms is moving manufacturing to a yet unmanned state.
