Game Getter-Is the Marlin Game Getter a good side-arm for use on the trap line?
The Marble Game Getter is really a good arm for trap line use, as you can use it with shot, for killing small game, and bait, and the .22 caliber barrel may be used to kill animals in traps, for small game that is out of the reach of shot. With the .44 caliber round ball you can kill a bear in a trap, and occasionally you can kill a deer or other big game, though I would only advise shooting at big game when you are sure you can kill it. The Marble Arms and Manufacturing Co. have records of big game killed with Game Getter guns, one of which tells of a 220 pound deer killed at 130 yards with a single round ball from a twelve-inch barrel Game Getter, and another of a moose killed with such a gun, although I do not know the distance at which it was killed.
