My father, a WWII and Korea vet, instilled a "Made in America" mindset in me from an early age. In and of itself, it is not as much of a belief in American quality as it is a belief that American jobs are more important than foreign jobs (keeping our communities alive, keeping our tax base robust through full employment). I drive an American car, I wear American clothes, I eat food grown in America, and I own American-made firearms. In my mind, it's the American thing to do! That being said, quality is key, and companies that produce a high-quality product and that are American based, American sourced, and American staffed, are where our hard-earned dollars should be going. These are the companies that need to be supported to ensure that American products and know-how don't disappear under the weight of foreign knock-offs and questionable manufacturing processes and quality standards. Henry has always symbolized both quality and American ingenuity to me, and I didn't hesitate when it was time to purchase my first lever-action rifle. I bought a Henry. I may have paid more than what some other lever-action rifles cost, but I never once doubted that it was money very well spent. God Bless America, and God Bless Henry Repeating Arms!
