You pretty much summed up my first days of deer hunting. I had to wait until I was 15 to get a .270 Win.
Before then it was shotguns with buckshot or slugs.

This:

Ruger saw all this crazy demand and jumped in the ring with rifles priced twice what they are worth (in my opinion) and people are buying them as fast as they can be made. The other levergun makers are just riding the bandwagon until the wheels fall off the demand.

Ruger is offering Classics for $1300. NIB. Why not just buy a real nice used Marlin for $800? Marlins price is too much for me. I doubt they will ever make the Model 39A & M again and if so it will be $1300++.
