The .22 Henry could use a big brother to hang out with and be a bad influence. Isn't that what big brothers do, or was it just mine? A .357 Henry would be a really nice rifle to have. For the short ranges typical of the woods in a lot of places a .357 Magnum is powerful enough for deer hunting. Or you could do like one guy at work did; set up at the side of the road with a 7mm Rem. Mag. and some high powered glass. Eventually a deer will cross somewhere between one end of the road and the other.

For years I thought I would get a 4.2" stainless GP100 if I ever got another .357. The 6" would be nice too but with the full underlug it has 5 more ounces of weight I don't need, or want to carry. I always wondered how much it would cost to get that milled off and just have a normal ejector shroud. Too many ideas and not enough money.

Well guys my Henry is a little laser. Dang thing hits everything We aimed at. We set up clays and spent shot shells, we also put up cans of shaving cream. Needless to say it was ridiculously fun. In one afternoon we shot an entire brick of 1100 rounds. I pulled a bore snake threw it and just kept shooting it. It?s definitely a hit with the family. Now I?m looking at the octagonal barrel golden boy for myself  :D

I have never heard anything but good things about the Henry.  I hope you get that Golden Boy you want.

Ever consider getting it in the 17 HMR?

Once more a Henry rifle lives up to it's reputation. Good. Every family should have at least one .22. Most of us grow up shooting one anyway. Having an accurate one would help build the confidence of any shooter hitting what they're aiming at.

When I read the part about the boresnake it reminded me of something my dad told told me. When he was young and dinosaurs roamed the Earth, he and the other boys shot an old .22 so long without cleaning it that instead of shooting out bullets, it was squirting out lead wire. ;D One of his old .22s we still have in the family looks like Larry Potterfield's favorite single shot .22 rifle. That may have been the one he meant. It's the same type of Winchester single shot, but I can't say if it's a model 60 or not since it's not at my house anymore. It does have the same plain trigger guard and not the kind I see on most pictures of 1902 and 1904 models. It's in non-firing condition but it's a one of a kind since my dad inlaid the stock with pieces of cow horn.

My dad still an old sears single shot 22 that he got way back in the day. He says around 1961 is when my grandpa gave it to him. We don?t shoot it anymore. We don?t want it to break. I still got my 10/22 that was my birthday gift back in 1987. I?m 43  ;D

I shoot them unless they are really old or fragile!!!  What model Sears is it???   If you want to shoot it and still afear damaging it, I bet you will eventually find one just like it for cheap on Gunbroker or one of the other auction sites.

It?s more sentimental for him. We?d take it out but he?s not willing to chance it.

You can look up who made the rifle for Sears here...
