    Thinking about another 22. Think it's going to be a Henry. Anything I need to know before I make jump. Always liked lever guns since my first 30.30 which I still have

    Just make sure that you have plenty of ammo. My Henry is fun to shoot. Can't go wrong with a Henry.

    Do you have a .22mag? If not, you might consider the Henry in .22mag. They have several models starting at about $550 msrp.

    Since Henry ads say they "Preserved the Union", I've but little desire for one.

    I've got a few long ago relatives that might have been "preserved" by a Henry then....something to think about. I never knew that about their ad.

    I have never heard that.

    But haven't I seen those special edition Henry rifles commemorating Confederate generals and such?

    Or was that some other brand?

    ETA: I looked it up (probably no longer available in today's "rewrite history" climate):

    I shot my Henry 22 lever last week, I like to fill it up with CCI 22 CB shorts, very quiet and a lot of fun, I also have a nice older Marlin mod 39 made in 1957 which is also a fun rifle, I like shooting them with my Ruger single-sixes.

    One of the reasons I bought it already have a single six. Also like the fact that it shoots shorts

    They are nice little guns. They are smooth as silk, the action that is.
