I just couldn’t wait to write to you about the retirement party we held for our Friend, Coworker and Supervisor at Hamilton college, Ed Neidhart. Because of you and your very fine company, and excellent customer service, the retirement party was more than a success, it was an emotional event that could never be surpassed! The party was a complete surprise, and consisted of Ed’s family and his closest co-workers and friends. Between the Beautiful Big Boy .44 mag rifle, and a Custom Oak gun display cabinet made by Ron Saunders (Hamilton College’s Master Carpenter) decorated by the Beautiful Brass Henry Plaque that you provided, Ed had tears of joy as I was presenting it to him! He could not put the Rifle down, in fact he probably hasn’t let go of it yet! It is and will always be a priceless possession to remind him of the respect and admiration that we have of him! The suggestion of the Initials and birth date in a unique serial number, made something special even more so! Thank you so much for all of your help in making this event such a success!
I myself have a Golden Boy 22 Mag, passed to me by my father, and I purchased the Big Boy .44mag last fall. My next rifle will of course be a Henry, and it will have the loop lever ! I Love my Henry Rifles, and knew that Ed would Love his! I have attached a pic of Ed with his Big Boy, and a pic of the finished cabinet!
Thanks again and have a great day!
Per your request, I will share with you my cousin Rick’s story as discussed with you at this year’s NRA Henry exhibit.
Rick and I are the same age, and growing up together, we were more like brothers than cousins. He’s a 57 year old, hard-working family man, with a loving wife, a fine son, and a beautiful daughter. I remember, as kids, we used to take care of sassy bandits and desperados with his lever action BB gun. Over the years, we have honed our skills with a lot of 22 target shooting for the friendly competition and fun.
Rick was never one to keep a gun for long, until now. In fact, he had been without one for some time. A year ago or so, Rick purchased a Henry Golden Boy. A beautiful gun in 22 LR that he is so proud to own. He had his initials engraved on it as he was thinking in terms of a family memento to leave to his kids.
Rick has been fighting cancer for a few years now and is on Social Security Disability. After going through chemo treatments last year, he said never again. Lately, a few hours during the afternoon are his best chance of feeling good. Rick had been telling me about the silver version of your Golden Boy, and a couple of weeks ago, he went to Grubb Hardware and Farm Supply and ordered one. I have included the picture of Rick he sent me last week of him proudly displaying his brand new silver Golden Boy.
I was thrilled when you asked me to write this and for Rick’s address. It will mean so much to him to hear from the President of Henry Repeating Arms Company.
Thank you and God Bless!
It’s an old west lever action, ( My favorite). Its made in America, (My favorite). It was donated to help the Friends of the NRA to promote education,(My passion). Thank you Mr. Imperato of Henry Rifles, you made my day. Very proud to own a Henry.
I want to thank you for making such quality products. I recently purchased a Henry steel 30-30 from David’s Gun Room in Norcross, Georgia and cannot express in words how pleased I am. I took it to the range as soon as I completed the purchase and right out of the box it is dead on accurate. This rifle has the ghost ring sites before your upgrade and I really like them. It was was of the reasons I bought this particular 30-30. Love the way it operates and love how easy it is to acquire the target. Also, this particular rifle has an outstanding piece of figured walnut in the forearm stock and pretty nice walnut in the butt stock. Lastly, I am not someone who pays a lot of attention to what others say or express about price and other issues when they are making a decision on a rifle purchase. I make the purchase based on what I want. I value my dollars as much as anyone, but if someone wants quality, then price shouldn’t be a deciding factor. I am more than glad I chose this beautiful lever-action rifle and will cherish it for many years to come. Thank you again for all you do!
I just purchased Henry Lever Brass Octagon Caliber .45-70. I can’t wait to shoot it. I have been looking at your rifles for sometime, this is my 30th wedding anniversary lucky me. I’m going to order your catalog. I just wanted you to know how proud and happy I’m to own one of your Rifles, it’s the only one I own. This is my new pride and joy.
The photo you requested. Dad with the .44 mag Big Boy and daughter with the .22LR Golden Boy. Another great trip to the range to enjoy shooting the Henry’s. Both are very accurate at any range. The Big Boy will be my Deer rifle this fall. We really enjoy our Dad and Daughter times at the range shooting the Henry’s.
All you need is a Henry rifle, a Tyler “hawk” and a dragon named Grace to help “Back the Badge.”
Good afternoon Mr Imperato,
I just wanted to give you a update on Grace.A few days after celebrating her 13th birthday, Grace was hospitalized and reached a critical state of danger where only a lung transplant will save her life. Excited to announce that Grace did get her surgery on July 29th, 2016 and is now on the road to recovery with her new lungs! The recovery time is expected to be about 3-6 months at the earliest. She is finally home and came to visit us yesterday her first words were where is my henry rifle! (Her dad bought for her 13th birthday)We can not thank you enough for all you have done supporting Grace with your generous donation!!! God bless
Here are the photos of the rifles I was talking about. There are a 22 long rifle, 22 magnum, 17hmr, 44 Magnum, and 45 Long. The serial numbers are SRPC00001 through SRPC00005. I had the cabinet built in Rheinbeck, Germany. My friend has a custom wood shop there. The tree was older than World War II. The tree survived, the town was destroyed I thought that was neat. We also have other rifles from you guys and we love them but these will be a family heirloom forever. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Good Evening Anthony,
I hope all is well and your trip to Rice Lake last week went well. Too bad we missed each other it would have been great to see you and chat. We of course are busy getting the finishing touches put together for our new store in Appleton, WI. I “memory” came across my facebook feed yesterday and I wanted to share it with. A great picture (picture is attached) and an even better day! Such an incredible day and one of my proudest moments that we have had at Fireline Shooting & Training Center since we opened the doors. We would certainly love to do this again and offer this opportunity to our customers in Appleton and of course hopefully have you there to do your magic and make the day that more special to our soon to be loyal Henry customers.
I know I may say it too much, but thank you for what you do for the industry and thank you for what you do for us as Fireline Shooting & Training Center! Genuinely appreciated!
