I’m 64, gettin’ a bit stiff & tender around the shoulder, but that ‘magic’ Big Boy just keeps driving my car out to the range, a MAKING me run a couple of hundred through it!
Takes a few days for the Big Boy to get over the soreness in it’s butt- plate caused by my shoulder poundin’ on it at the range, but sure as shootin’, before I know it, there we go back to the ‘playground’ again!
I do believe that you good folk making them so handsome, and so downright fun to be with just encourages that Boy’s natural neighborly personality to bubble out, and he spends all afternoon visiting with, and talking with all who show up! It makes me grin, though, that when he starts conversing with the whole crowd, he becomes a real attention- getter. They all kinda relax real quiet-like, and listen to the Boy make sweet music ’till his butt-plate is too sore to go on!
We have noticed that a few of his Smaller Brethren are out enjoying the coming Spring, and occasionally another Biggie will grace us for an afternoon. Y’know, there surely are a lotsa content Boys out, lately, and from all the smiling faces, I would think there’s a lot of VERY content owners, too!
We eased back over to Fort Ambrose earlier, to insure that Jerry’s outpost wasn’t overwhelmed by the dreaded Black Circle riders, and the Boy surely did break a lot of hearts! One poor pilgrim showed up at the fracas with a VERY overpriced “Northern Mediterranean” knock-off! ( no offence A. I. )!! It was pitiful to see a grown fella go through all the five stages of grief in 60 seconds!
The Boy said we should show ’em mercy, but I could tell he was favoring that butt-plate. Even as exhausted as the Boy was, he insisted on his “quality time”! That special bond that there is between a class firearm and a shooter! So I read him a bit, and shared a cup while he dozed and rested that backside!
You know, life can be sweet when ya get it right!
Thanks from me ( and the Boy )
I,ve had my Henry Golden Boy 22 LR for about 7 years now. I was hunting in northern Mn about the forth year I owned the gun. I bumped a log and lost my inner magazine tube. I didn’t carry extra bullits, it held enough. 20 miniutes lator I walked up on a grouse. One bullit, 45 yards, lunch! What a Rifle! I tried for 18 months to get a new magazine from different dealers, no one seemed to care, thier not selling a new gun. I finally contacted Henry my self and had a new magazine in days. love your service, love your gun.
Thank you so much for all your assistance on our recent purchase of the Abraham Lincoln 200th Anniversary rifle. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT…. It is a gorgeous rifle. My husband is so proud of this rifle, the fact that you went to all the trouble to make sure we were able to purchase serial # nine to add to our collection, just absolutely made this gun one of our favorites !!!!
Just purchased one of your Henry Golden Boys in 22 caliber that I have been pining for for some time. Its a lovely rifle to say the least. The walnut stock is extremely nice. I can`t wait to go out and burn up a couple boxes of 22`s. I have several lever action cowboy style rifles and the Golden Boy has already found a place in my heart. My daughter has claimed it as her`s when the Great Spirit has called me home. Thanks for making such a fine traditional rifle. Rick “Rain in Face” Schultz, War Chief, Animesix Nation. Well, thats what I think of my self when I`m holding this rifle! Sitting Bull would have been proud to have owned this lever action to……
My name is Josh Rowell and I am the office manager for EOTAC LLC. I have owned a Henry .22 LR for a few years now and am still impressed with the reliability and accuracy of the rifle. After I purchased this rifle I retired some of my old 10/22’s including my Ruger and Marlin and have adopted this as my full-time plinking and small game gun. I have received multiple praises from top guys in the industry on it’s accuracy, reliabilty, and overall quality through the years. Needless to say, many squirell’s, rabits, and other small mammals have been laid to rest by this plinker and I have never been let down. You know that when a reputable marksman shooting by your side at the range comments on the incredible accuracy of an open site lever action .22LR while he himself is shooting a prototype $1k .22 LR with an optic scope and range calculator that you have landed a quality rifle. All in all I am very pleased with my Henry and it is one of the few guns that I will never part with. I’ve had no problem selling or trading 1911’s, shotguns, and other rifles, but this Henry is one that I will never get rid of. My compliments to the production squad and designers of these fine rifles.
I liked the Golden Boy .17HMR so much I bought a BIG BOY .44MAG. Just fired the .17HMR today. Shot the 4″ ring at 50 yds consistently. Can’t wait to try the BIG BOY. Plan to use for Hogs and DEER. Proud to have such a fine USA made weapon. Thanks. PS – Can I buy some stock in Henry R R ?????
Thanks for the fine rifle made in America. Now when I go out squirrel hunting I don’t spend all my time working on the gun (10 22 POS!) Thanks again for the quality rifle.
Just picked up the Henry Survivor and I am having a blast. It is a hoot to shoot.
I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how pleased both my 11yr. old daughter Mallory and I are with the recent purchase of your Henry Mini-Bolt. This is an excellent introductory firearm that has made it simple for me to teach safe firearms handling and shooting techniques to her. I have been an avid shooter and outdoorsman my entire life and I am elated that my daughter has chosen to join me in sport shooting. After approximately one year of shooting with the standard Williams Fire Sights (which she loves), we decided to kick it up a little bit and purchased the Henry cantiliever scope mount and a 4×32 scope. She continues to thoroughly enjoy it and continues to have much success on the range. I forsee her stepping to a larger model Henry in the not-so-distant future. Thank you again for manufacturing such a quality firearm.
To whom it may concern:
I just wanted to let you know i just purchased my first henry rifle today a model H001 in .22cal and i must say as an owner of several other lever action rifles and a few other .22cal rifles that the action on the henry is by far the smoothest i have ever seen ! The quality of your rifles is great and the accuracy of this gun was excellent ! Please continue the excellent work of these fine rifles and be assured i will ad another henry to my collection in a future date!
