    Anyone have any experience? I use some powderless agulia ammo around the house. Its really quiet.

    I have always wanted a Henry lever action rifle. When I saw the mares leg at my LGS I just had to have it. It's small and can do everything the longer version can do. I am just getting it as a play gun.

    Super excited!

    So is that technically classified as a pistol?

    If so, you should could get an IWB holster for it! :supergrin:

    It is a pistol, so technically...if your pants were baggy enough...:tongueout:

    But on a serious note, I saw some amazing leather leg holsters for these around Christmas. I was thinking of picking one up, but ended up going in a different direction.

    If prices are still good around the summer, I may pick one up. Let us know how she shoots!

    Quite a good review some months ago of the larger caliber versions as being an ideal utility gun for farmers.

    Henry makes GREAT stuff, I have three :) My favorite .22LR long gun.

    That mares leg looks sweet, nice pickup!
