Talking New from Texas.

Im from the great state of Texas. Live in Denton just north of Fort Worth. I have been shooting of and on for years. Had to take my most recent break due to multiple heath reason. Im a retired R.N. that worked for many years in Emergency Departments. I discovered yall when searching for info on my latest buy, a Mini 14 wood and blued. Reminds me of my Marlin 99 M1 22LR carbine that I have had since 1967. I have various guns both rifle and handguns.

So from Texas I say Howdy.

Howdy from Central Virginia! Also have a Mini-14 wood/blue (or two) - soon to be three. And also have a 1967 Marlin 99 M1 (no S/N) with the original rear sight. All are great carbines!

This forum is the absolute best for Mini-14s and other Mini-caliber carbines. Like you, I found this forum when doing a little searching for "Mini-14".

For your Marlin 99 M1, this is a good place:

Excellent choice TrueTexan...I admire your taste in Mini-14 rifles! Hope you got plenty of 5.56x45 or are most surely going to "need" it!
The dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
