    Took the Marlin Camp 9 to the range yesterday

    Yeah, I sound like a broken record, but I really enjoy that rifle, as well as anyone i hand it to to shoot it.. I picked it up around 6 years ago, before I got a pistol license, but wanted a rifle in a pistol caliber. No one paid them any due while they were being made, and while they had their foibles, they were easily remedied. Now PCC carbines are the rage., and Ruger came out with the PC9 take down. it has a certain coolness factor that the new offerings don't provide IMHO.

    I think that really depends on when you started to buy/collect firearms.

    Pistol caliber Colt Lightnings, Winchesters and Marlins from the 1870's (you were too young back then) - were very popular!

    In the 80's and 90's I collected PCC's like the Uzi, HK94, HK USC .45, Colt AR-15 9mm, Feather AT-9, MK 760, Calico 9mm, etc. They were pretty popular, but not as popular as the Mini-14's. .223 AR's we few and far between in my circles, and back then only with 20" barrels. The 16" version were even more rare.

    But there does seem to be an uptick in PCC's nowadays, mostly due to your range reports!

        I wish I would have kept one for myself when I did that group buy.
