Just picked up a Marlin 980S to teach my girlfriends 11 y.o. daughter and 13 y.o son with. For 250.00 the price was right at Sportsman's Warehouse.



I wanted a good bolt action, with fixed sights to teach the basics and build a good foundation on. I went back and forth from a Savage, to the Marlin. The 980 had a better contrast for the sight picture. Tomorrow I will hit the range and give a report and see how well the kids shoot.

Good for you. It is great you are teaching the young ones to shoot safely. I am still holding out for a Marlin 39a.
