Christmas Present
 
I was lucky enough to get a new gun for Christmas this year. Low and behold, it was a Henry Goldenboy! I was really blown away by the quality of the gun. The lever action was just as smooth as silk. And not to mention its gorgeous! It has a nice deep blue on the octagon barrel. I had heard that the Henry plant had been shut down due to damage from Sandy and production had stopped. None of the distributors I use ever had any in stock. But my old man found a new one somewhere. As soon as the snow melts, I'll get some pictures.

Sweet! One of my favorite .22's.

Beautifully crafted golden silk....always get comments at the range!

They make a beautiful rifle. I bought one at a flea market a couple of years ago but its .17 HRM and not .22 LR. I've never shot mine. I just cleaned it up and stuck it in the vault. It does seem strange this day and time to see a firearm maker advertising on TV. Hope you don't mind if I post a couple of pics.

Not at all. I'm a big fan of your pics. :)

Just some quick pictures.

Very nice
 
I love the shooting bench. I can shoot out here on my property but need a bench and maybe some trees cleared. You can keep that white stuff whatever it is. :D

The bench was a present from the wife!
