I think the majority of people have a least one lever action. They might not use them for their primary guns but they are more popular than a lot of people think. Personally I have 3 marlins in 30/30, .35 Remington, .450 Marlin, and a Winchester 94 30/30. I still want to get a Marlin 39A .22.

I have a Marlin 336 in 30-30 and 2 Marlin 39As in .22. I love all three of them!! I use the .22s in squirrel season but I no longer use centerfires for deer anymore (ML only) so it has been officially retired until my son/daughter starts to hunt.

I think your right Jeffs, most people have levers but not for their primary gun. Where I live the state just past a law that after a gazillion years, we now can use rifles instead of shotguns to hunt deer with. Being an owner of Marlins, Winchester and Henry's, I'm in my glory and levers are my primary firearms. With this new Hornady LE ammo, levers now have some range with a little more knock down power.

I currently own two '94 Win. 30-30's, one pre-64, one post, a '94 Win. 32 Spl., pre-64, a '71 Win. 348, and a fairly new Henry .22. Do I hunt with them? Naw. I often take the 32 Spl. to bear camp as a back-up gun, however. Although I will admit killing my first several deer with a '94 30-30. That was many moons ago.......... They really are nice to carry.

Marlin 336 in 30-30 and a Savage 99 in .300 Savage.

Both work really, really well on deer.
