Im pretty sure some of you guys have this rifle. Im lookin for reviews on it. Big5 is havin a sale, so its 40 bucks off and can be had for 200. Is that even a good deal? Anyways, just lookin for input on what you guys think about it.

I got the Savage 17HMR...bad little round, no idea on the marlin thou. Marlins normally have pretty good rimfires?

Doesn't sound like a bad deal for a .17HMR. They are a blast to shoot, I plan on getting one myself.

Sounds like a good deal to me...you can't go wrong with Marlin rimfires and lever actions. :thumbup

Really, where ive gone shooting is my buddies property right down the road from me, ive gone to the Livermore gun range which i really liked, and also a range thats in the back roads from Tracy to Modesto which was a mom and pop range.

You can't go wrong with a Marlin. IMO its one of the best rimfires you can get. I have a 22 magnum which is pretty simmilar to the 17 as far as the gun goes and I can't complain about anything on it except the factory trigger pull, but thats a bitch I got with any new gun.

Definately Buy IT!! I have one. One of the sweetest shooting guns I have ever owned. I don't regret buying it a bit. I have had it for I think three years now. My boys and I love shooting it. The only down side is the trigger pull is a little stiff, however you can get a trigger kit from rifle basics that greatly improves it.

You know...when Ian (stangmata) had mentioned he put Peanutbutter on his teste (singular) and let Bonzai lick it off...I was thinking it was his dog...but didn't he just get back from a trip to California?

If you're under 18 your dad has to buy it for himself. If the guys at the store know he's buying it for you they may not sell it.
Nah, im 19, gonna be 20 here in a few days, so i should be good to go there.
