Went to my clubs rimfire range today with my father and brother. The temps were around 80, very humid, no wind. Took the CZ 452 Varmint and a Henry Lever Carbine I picked up yesterday with us. Haven't shot with iron sights in a long time so it took some time getting used to them but I got the hang of it after a while. My brother and father shot most with the CZ because its one accurate little gun so I got to play with my new toy a lot. The Henry has a pretty good trigger out of the box and I don't see a need to do anything to it. The action feels very slick and solid too and so far I'm very happy I bought the Henry. I'm planning to run the gun with just the irons as they are plenty good for what I'm using it for but might try a scope on it at some point just see it's full accuracy potential.

Saw a baby white tail on the road inside the gates on the way to the range but it ran into the bushes before we got the camera out :(

Here are the pictures:

Gah! Did not need to see a picture of ANY lever action .22. I am trying real hard not to buy .22's just for the sake of having them as I NEED to get other firearm purchases out of the way.

Those are sweet looking rifles though. I can see myself owning a Henry.

You will be amazed how far you can hit a target with open sights. I tried my Marlin 60 with open sights on IPDA targets. It hit them pretty good out to 300 yards. Some where between 300 and 400 yards 22 rounds start tumbling. With match ammo you might get a little more than 300 yards out of a 22.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It was actually my brother who took those pictures. He has some sort of a fancy camera and also is pretty good at using it. He changed the first pic of the Henry to black and white and order a copy from a print shop for me, still haven't framed it though :eek:

I was tempted to get the Golden Boy but I knew I wouldn't shoot it because it's so pretty :D
