OK Gabe - looks like I gotta put some rds downrange with my Henry this year, starting with the 'Chilako Trials' event at your club.

Please tell me that we're not going to be shooting them at wash tub sized targets at 10m .....

In my opinion there's nothing Like a Henry to show off fine engraving.

Sorry I can't polish my 1860 because it is the iron frame model. Converted to .45 CA Special ( .45 short) it is a hard hitter and super fun to shoot. Fully loaded 17 rounds is that an ancient assault rifle?

Loaded as it was originally intended.  Mine is as well.   Hell of a lot more historically accurate than a Henry n 44-40 or .45 Colt.  Good on ya.

My wife bought this Henry from Henry Repeating Arms, for one of my Christmas presents.  It's a quality rifle.  Wood to metal is excellent!

Excellent photo.  Thanks!  I keep asking myself, though, "Hero or villain?" ;D

Thanks, This buffalo coat is the warmest coat I've ever owned.  No matter how cold and windy it is, it never fails to keep me warm!

Here's two of my all time favorite rifles.   My 1860 Henry in 44-40 made by Henry Repeating Arms.  And my 1874 Sharps Hartford in 45-70, made by C. Sharps Arms.   Both fun shooters!
