Dear Mr. Imperato;
Thank you so much for your personal response to my fan mail. I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer everywhere but my bones and brains back in May 2015 so as you can imagine I don’t miss a chance to bond with my daughter. The rifle fits her like it was made custom just for her. She cleans it herself and then asks me to inspect it because she wants to keep it looking and functioning just like new. Words simply cannot express how proud she is of her rifle and how proud I am to see her progress as a marksman and her appreciation for American freedom and the lifestyle of responsible patriotic gun ownership.
On a range trip early this summer she had just finished shooting a 2″ spinning target at 25 yards so quickly it never stopped spinning from the first hit to the 15th. Then she announced “Reloading” and couched the rifle against her foot and a directors chair. Mom started to walk in front of the muzzle and my baby girl shouted “Mom STOP!, don’t walk in front of the rifle. ” Of course mom stopped and went around the other way. Just a small example of the big responsibility she acknowledged was hers when she picked up the gun. Again she’s only 7.
It has been my distinct honor and pleasure to pass along my love of the shooting sports, outdoors lifestyle and passionate belief in American freedom to my daughter. Henry has played an integral part in this process and that was the best gun money I’ve ever spent. I have already requested a catalog and signed up for the newsletter and a new Henry decal for my toolbox. I had a Henry sticker on my toolbox at work but not on my toolbox at home. The guys at work also agree that Henry makes a damn fine rifle and nobody I know has ever had a single problem with any of them.
I will truly appreciate anything you send me or my baby girl but if I may I’d request a coffee mug. I love my coffee and the only thing I can think of that would make it better would be to enjoy it out of a genuine Henry campfire coffee mug. 🙂
I named my daughter Abigail after Abigail Adams who could truly be said to be the mother of the American Constitution because every time John Adams got tired of debating with the federalist it was his wife Abigail who stiffened his spine and encouraged him to fight for greater state rights over federal authority.
As you requested here are 2 pics of my daughter proudly holding her very own Henry.
Thank you again for your personal response. It’s that kind of customer appreciation that makes it easy for me to confidently recommend Henry rifles to anyone that ask me about a good lever action rifle.
Thanks for making a great product, here’s an image of me with my Henry.
I finally got my Golden Boy Silver 17 HMR out to the range and I put the first shot in the center ring at 50 yards. This is my third Henry and I’m already planning #4 – A Big Boy in 44 Mag. I’ve never had a miss feed on any Henry and the action is as smooth as silk.
I can’t say that for any of my semi autos. Thank you for making great guns and works of art at that.
I bought a new Henry 30-30 and it is great.
I thought that I would never find a better rifle than my Big Boy rifle in .45 Colt. Then I got my Big Boy Carbine in .44 Magnum! Now I can’t decide between the two – so I’ll just have to plan on another Henry!
Hello, we are a Henry dealer here in Lapeer, Michigan and wanted to pass along a great story regarding one of our recent rifle sales.
A younger Gentleman came into our shop wanting to see the Henry American Beauty .22 rifle, which we carry in stock. He was very taken with the rifle’s quality and workmanship and proceeded to put it on layaway. As I started the paperwork, the customer mention he was buying it for his daughter. I responded that not only was the rifle a wonderful gift, but he was creating a family heirloom for his future grand and great-grand children. Then I asked “how old is your Daughter?” His reply really touched my heart when he said “she isn’t born yet”!
Weeks later, both soon-to-be parents came to pickup the rifle with their Daughter’s birth only days away. Attached is a picture of one of God’s newest American beauties, Baby Jolene with her very own Henry American Beauty rifle.
I have shared this story with many customers, one of which was brought to tears. Knowing your company is a family business, I felt compelled to share this wonderful story. Thank you for making a quality American product. Customers rave about your rifles and we are proud to be a Henry dealer.
Bryson received a Henry bolt 22 for his 8th birthday! We had a very excited little boy! He loves his first rifle!
I’m the proud owner of a brand new Henry Big Boy. Its not enough to say that this is just a fine gun. I’m a retired forest service law enforcement officer and have owned, shot , and been around many different kinds of guns my entire life, as have my whole family. I’ve never been more proud of a gun as I am this one. Not only is the quality and workmanship outstanding, this gun is also a genuine shooter. Best of all, its made in America. My thanks and gratitude to a fine company who produces works of art that can still be used by the American family for hunting, pleasure shooting, or just show.
I am attaching several photos of the gun ceremony and presentation. Capt. Espinoza accepted the rifle on behalf of Stg. Huggard at the NRA banquet. He couldn’t be there because of a last minute job obligation. The Huggard’s visited us at the ranch and then we met them for dinner and took pictures with the rifle. I have also attached his bio. Please let me know if you need anything else. Sorry it took so long to put this together, but it was hard to make the schedule’s work with the Huggard family. If you need any info on the pictures, let me know. (I will send the pictures in two emails. Let me know if you don’t get them.)
