    My wife surprised me with a Henry .22 rifle for Christmas this morning. Man this thing is sweet. I was admiring it when I took it out of the box. The gun is just beautiful. Nice blueing, gorgeous wood, it is just a nice looking gun. Then I worked the action. I have never felt a better action on a lever gun. It is like butter smooth. Finally got to shoot a few rounds thru it a few minutes ago. I spotted a tin can on end about fifty yards out in the yard. I proceeded to rip it up. Seems to be dead on out of the box or at least minute of bean can. I think I am really gonna like this little rifle.:santa:

    Nice. We have the Henry catalog in our office at work. It gets drooled over several times daily.

    I'm jealous. My first gun was a .22LR Marlin lever action. It was a Christmas gift from my wife and included a scope. I loved that rifle, but later traded it when I got into archery.

    Still have the wife!

    Congrats.

    Congratulations on your new rifle. The more you shoot it, the more you will love it.

    I own the Henry Frontier .22lr lever action model. It shoots CCI Blazer 40 RN and Remington 36g Golden Bullet ammunition surprisingly well.

    Use subsonic ammo and you have a .22 as quiet as a BB gun. Lets see some pics.
