Go ahead and get the Henry. You're obviously a fan of the Duke. Every John Wayne fan has to of had at least one lever action. I forget where that's written but its somewhere.
That Henry will probably last you from now on. You can always add a 10/22 or Marlin later if you want to.
Depends on if you prefer tubies, mag feeds, or lever guns.
A Marlin 60(my fave), a Ruger 10/22, or a 22LR lever gun...
