MM,
If the 10Ga Remy kicks anything like my 12 GA 1889 Remy CoachGun, then you'l know the meaning of "kills on one end and Maims on the other". I carry bruises for a week after I shoot mine, but it is an original Remy and I love it...

I'm still looking for an 1860 Henry or that improved modell in 45 LC.

Yeah, if I am unlucky enough to win this shotgun, http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=73167566 , I bid on as a back up then I think the 1889 might feel good in comparison. Sometimes free time and gunbroker are not your friend :o I was thinking, hey , I can get a wooden stock set from Brownells for about $35, refinish the metal and I'll have a great gun to test loads with! The other thought was I could "make" 10 ga. empty hulls to reload from store bought rounds or shoot those factory loaded 10 ga black powder rounds in it at a match. I never said I had a lot of common sense! ::)  I need to find someone local who can help me figure out what size chamber the 1889 has so I don't handload shells that are too long for it. I'm sure if I get the NEF it will help "encourage" me to do so. ;)
Don't worry when I get all this figured out I'll post some pics of the 10 gauge(s) knocking me on my 4th point of contact!

You know the most painful recoil I have felt was from a Benelli 3 1/2 inch 12 gauge with 00 Buck loads a buddy had. That narrow butted shotty hurt! I like to play with elephant guns and have fired .375 H&H, .378 Weatherby, .416 Remington, Rigby, and Weatherby, .458 Win. Mag., .460 Weatherby, and .500 Jefferys and I still think that shotgun was the most vicious. I'm not really worried about the 10 gauges, although I won't be shooting any 3 1/2" shells out of the NEF single shot if I can help it...

Howdy, Dakota.  Add me to the Henry totin' list.  Mine is Iron frame in .45 Colt.  I match it up with a TTN 1878 Colt mule ear in 12 ga, Colt 2d Model Dragoon with a .45 Colt R&D drop in cylinder & a Colt Open Top in .44 Special.  Yeah, I know.  One of these days I gotta switch to the Dark Side at which time I will need to look to trade for a .44WCF but for now I'm not bringing more than two different calibers to the loading table!

I just noticed I'm a two time member as my old handle Major 231 & as Major 2  :D

I guess it's OK then, to announce my newest Henry is in the works and on the way.
A new Steel Frame Henry  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Golleee Major 2, First the Remy Conversion and now the Iron Frame Henry.

Oh! BTW you can add me to the list as I got my Henry yesterday and went straight to the indoor rnage at the Gunshop  and blasted away for a couple hours.

Shot over 100 shots and had only one Boo-Boo. A factory Winchester Cowboy Load wasn't crimped and it collasped in the magazine jammed the lifter first, and would not feed. I had my wits about me and my Gunsmithing screwdrivers (chapman) and I released the extractor, opened the Magazine and slid out the remaining unfired rounds, dropped the lifter and slid out the offending cartridge. I reloaded and blazed away.

I made a "Henry Stick" l ike DJ's(from his picture and dimensions) and it works perfectly. I like that stick because I have small hands and I can support the rifle and not interrupt the follower with it, hard for me to hold my fingers like a "C" to support the rifle.

I'll try to get some good pictures up soon.

TRADE? did someone say Trade? ...LOL
That woke me up.

Excuse:  I sold a Nice Camper I bought with gun money, made a profit and so I returned the gun money to it rightful place. Now I'm out of Gun money for awhile. HAPPY, but Tapped out of Gun Money. but I HAVE my Henry.

I remember sometime ago I was in the NW and they had just found what they thought was some of D.B.'s money in a forest. I never heard if it really was or not.
