Drum roll, please. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itAOGRiYRLI[/ame] I am so excited I could scream. Wait, I did scream. Balota came to visit and this is a gift he bought me. You know how I've been wanting one of these for a long time. Well, this was more than I ever hoped to have. Get a load of that paint job. Feast your eyes on this. My new Henry Lever Youth model. You can't slap that smile off my face. Thank you, Balota! I love it!! Brand new in the box! Get a good look at this paint job and eat your heart out. Especially you, JonM. Hahahaha........ We went shooting with JonM and here is my new rifle getting a work out. It was general consensus that it is a mighty fine rifle. I just need to scope it. JonM shooting my new love. Balota getting his turn with the beautiful rifle. The RO suggested I get a mat to lay the gun down on so as not to scratch it up. I suggested he offer me his shirt to lay my gun on. He saw right through me and refused to take off his shirt. DAMMIT!! This rifle shot like a dream. The lever action is smooth and sweet, as is the trigger. I love this rifle. Yep, I love it. It's my first long gun and I couldn't be happier. And what is so wonderful is it is just the right size for me and it's not heavy at all. It's probably the first rifle I ever fired that fit me well. It was juuuust right!!! And I plan to share it with my granddaughter, too.
