Henry Customer Letters

vanharlPraise the Lord for a Henry Delay
The poem

He hunted in the north woods, white tails on his land
He was a friend to many, held no malaise for his fellow man
He taught his children to do what was right and walk within the law
Crime stayed away from him, but on the news it was the violence that he saw

Some in our nation turned to the alleged easy way of crime
Many a young man by 21 had already done hard time
Taking to the streets while the sun shone down, making criminal hay
Sadly the good family of the north woods might soon need a Henry Delay

Henry Delay is not a person it is a fine rifle in a good citizen’s hands
It is a lever action rifle sitting next to mom on her way in the family mini van
Henry is the 22 bolt gun you teach your children how to safely shoot well
But most importantly, Henry is the tool–you dispatch evil back to the gates of hell

You are not a soldier or a cop standing on that thin blue line
You are a parent getting the kids to school and you to work on time
But evil is always out there rushing to block your way
You can run, hide or fight but with a Henry in your hands you can survive that awful day

Henrys have been around since 1860 when our nation was divided and torn
In 1996 with the legacy of the past and modern steel a new Henry was born
With great emphasis on quality and customer service a new rifle was produced
You may not stop a hostile army but with a Henry lever gun evil, will be reduced

To slow the descent of harm upon your family is the goal of a Henry Delay
With a Big Boy rifle in your hands evil is kept at bay
Henrys in the hands of an American family are there to stem the Godless criminal tide
A family in peril will be better served with a Henry Delay on their side.

Louis Imperato was a man of vision who saw a Henry in every American’s hand
But my family way up north hunt with their Henrys on Canadian land
There are Henry rifles in Scotland and in the Australian outback
An Aussie boy smiles at the sound of his 22 Henry’s reported crack

When I pulled out my first Henry the wife said “Oh, shiny”, it was that Henry bling
It is the workmanship and great looks that makes it a Henry-girl shooting thing
The finish and fine lines of the Henry with your hands you can trace
Quality and reliability that made a Henry Delay the cornerstone of your family’s defensive base.

Do your target shooting and fill your hunting tags this deer season
In your mind keep it clear that a Henry Delay is an important ownership reason
Can you stop evil before it crosses your threshold?
With a Henry, live long and prosper and gently grow old

If the sun were to always shine there would be only desert I am told
You would need rose colored glasses to observe and behold
Rose color distorts and can hide danger from your sight
Evil tells no time, a Henry Delay could arise in the dark or in the midday light

Quality counts when your life may perish in a moment’s time
The quality of a Henry will hold that defensive line
The Lord wants you to follow his rules and to him you obey
In the wee hours of the night when evil calls, praise the Lord for a Henry Delay
Praise the Lord for a Henry Delay

mike-elsberryI grew up in Iowa and was able to enjoy responsible firearems ownership and use from an early age, thanks to supportive parents and a midwestern culture which understood the importance of that aspect of our American heritage.  It has been a challenge to raise my son with those same values and opportunities here in California. Fortunately, he has been able to experience the outdoors, including his 12 years in scouting (Order of The Arrow and Eagle Scout) as well as shooting sports, even though shooting opportunities are fewer and more restrictive than I experienced growing up.  As a boy, Tyler began his firearms education (as did I) carrying an unloaded BB Gun on our firearms outings to learn safety and proper firearms etiquett.  His ability and confidence progressed remarkably as he was given more freedom and responsibility, and he now works in gun sales at our local Turner’s Outdoorsman store while attending college.  Tyler’s first rilfe purchase was the Henry AR-7 Survival rifle.  His mother and I gave him his Brass 30-30 Henry for his 18th birthday, and we later presented him the Big Boy 44 Mag Eagle Scout and Order of The Arrow rifles in celebration of his attainment of the Eagle Scout rank.  I first satisfied my “Henry thirst” with the 45-70 steel when it became available and most recently added the Henry Original Iron Frame to our collection.  Regardless of what other weapons we take to the range, our Henrys always receive the most recognition and admiration from rangemasters and fellow shooters.  Both Tyler and I look forward to adding the 1000 Man Shoot rifles to our collection. This will be Tyler’s 21st birthday present, and your assistance in getting consecutive serial numbered rifles would be most appreciated.

Thank you for keeping American tradition, values and craftsmanship alive and well for my son to pass on to future generations!

ted-larrabeeI 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!

frankgryncewiczMr. Imperato,

What would be more American then a large bore revolver on the hip and a Leaver Action on the shoulder? When our archery season ends, here in Tennessee, time to grab the hand cannon. In my opinion no one makes a finer production lever action “NONE”. I have attached an image of my new “go to gun” for this season. On top of the Leupold sits a TACTACAM video. Quite surprising was the fact the 45-70 recoil was not anywhere near what I thought it would be. On the other hand the 460 will let you know who the boss is (ha) so this long gun is tame in comparison. The other members of my hunt club are amazed, at least one is going to purchase your WS 30-30. Now this is “We The People” hunting. Video will follow up this season. Thanks again for manufacturing the best Lever Action on the market.

janetplattHi Anthony,

I first had the pleasure of meeting  you at last year’s Gun Guru’s filming in Nashville. I ran into you this year in Louisville. You gave me your business card and said to send you an email, because you had a lot of pink stuff. Well, I finally got around to taking a picture with my Henry rifle, Gun Guru and Henry items to send your way.

It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for manufacturing such quality firearms. To quote your motto…”Built in America, or not at all.”
