I recieved a Herny golden boy for my 11th bday( I'm 15). It's engraved with my name, birthday, and a short message from my Uncle. It's fairly accurate as far as I can tell(Not really used to the buckhorn irons). I don't shoot it much though, it looks too good...... :-)

I love my .22lr. Easy to use same ammo as my other .22's.

I shoot mind with relative frequency, but always concerned about the 'bling'!
Wipe it off frequently....you can explain that it is necessary to the family...after a while they won't think a thing about you sitting on the couch caressing her....mmmmm.
What happened...where am I?

I got a Goldenboy 22lr for Christmas last year. It's an amazing gun! Incredibly smooth and well made. I'd recommend the 22LR as its cheaper to shoot and you can also shoot shorts and CBs as well.

I'm getting a Golden Boy soon. I just got the Big Boy .44 two days ago. After handling it this weekend, I went to the shop and he is holding a Big Boy .357 and a Mares Leg in either .357 or .44 for me as well. This is going to be quite the Henry Collection!

I like it so much more than my Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited.

I have found a few of them on the internet and one at a local gun shop as well. I am confused though, because the Henry website says there is a Golden Boy Deluxe Engraved II and it comes in 22 lr/s. My first question is, was there a Golden Boy Deluxe Engraved I? And the particular rifle that is at my local gun shop is a 22 mag engraved gun, but it is not shown on the Henry website. So do any of you think that any of these would be good investments? I mean I understand maybe not in my lifetime, but my great grandchildren might get to see benefit from a few guns that were 1 of 1000. I also found a Henry Big Boy Deluxe II for sale that is a 357 mag/38 special. The Henry website says that they are also calibered in 44 mag/sp, and 45 colt. So does that mean that there are 1000 guns of each caliber or is there 1000 guns of all three of those calibers all together in the Big Boy version? Anyways, I hope someone might have some insight about my questions. Thank you in advance.
I dont know but I'll bump your question to the next page.
