This is my first .22!! I've never owned one before, shot plenty of them, but never got around to buying one. Now I have something economical to shoot, and it'll be a blast. Picked up this Henry .22 Lever action yesterday! Looks good, great fit an finish, the action is wonderfully smooth. Cant wait to take her out tomorrow. The best part is....my lady paid for 3/4ths of it because she wanted something cheap and fun to shoot (this is coming from a girl who refused to even TOUCH my guns to begin with). Good times! Guess she's a keeper after all!
