I had a Henry AR-7 for years. Easy to carry and fun to shoot. Kind of a clumsy gun. The stock and grip are wide to accomodate everything in it. The trigger is terrible and the barrel oddly skinny. You would think it would be good for kids, but that grip is too wide. If you are going to actually use it for targets or animals, I would make another choice, unless you are going to carry it hiking.
