Mr. Imperato –
As soon as I got the rifles home, I unwrapped them, photographed them and sent the pictures to my Scouting acquaintances world-wide. Your BSA Commemoratives have been well received by my colleagues in the Scouting community.
One reply I received from my best friend and fellow Scouter included these enthusiastic words –
“Well you fell in it and came up roses. I have no idea what you paid for those rifles but the walnut in the stocks is beautiful let alone the engraving. The commemoration makes them priceless. They certainly are too pretty for wall hangers (that’s a joke, son! – no lectures). In future years, regardless of the books that measure such things, they should be impossible to value. I could guess that Mr. Imperato would have to be a ex or current Scouter to want to produce such a work of art for the organization. God bless him. Don”
Like myself, Don is a Scout/Scouter with more than a half century of experience and service in and to Scouting.
I will continue to exhibit my rifles in the Scouting community and let them speak for themselves. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Scouting community and all who serve the youth of our nation.
Yours in Scouting,
Ron Shoupe Sr. & Jr.
So far, I have purchased the Henry Big Boy.357/.38, and the Henry Golden Boy .17 HMR. I play to also purchase the Henry lever action .22 Mag., the new .30-30 lever action, and the Big Boy .44 Mag. I love the precision action of the Henry, and I always get compliments on their looks. Thanks for a fine piece of shooting equipment.

Greetings from a satisfied customer.
I purchased my Henry Golden Boy .22 cal almost two years ago. My son and I are proud members of your “Customer Letters” web page. Here is a current photo of my son shooting our Golden Boy at our local range, Oak Ridge Sportman’s Association (ORSA).
It is still my favorite gun…
Thanks Henry Repeating Arms,

Dear Sirs, Recently I purchased an H001 Henry rifle. I took it to the range a couple times, and then took my wife with me after I had drifted the rear sight some to get the windage right. To make a long story short, she’s 54 years old and has very little gun experience. After learning the basics of safety and aiming, she is hooked. Worse for me, she’s hooked on the Henry! Now, I have to buy another, as soon as I can get her back to work, as she is laid off at the moment. All it took was hitting that eight inch circle at twenty five yards, then she hit it a few times at fifty. That really did it. Now, she’s confiscated it for her own. I think the little H001L suits me great, and I love the carbine length too. Thanks again, Henry, you made a believer out of me and a shooter out of my wife. You guys have a great product and I enjoy it a lot. Sincerely,
MUSCLE SHOALS, AL
My wife and I have put about 5000 rounds thought our Henry Big Boy. With out any problems or jams. We shoot SASS and practice alot. Now our daughter is starting to shoot and we want to purchase one in caliber .357 The one we have is in .45 Colt. Your product is well made and we would like to Thank You for a job well done.
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my purchase of a new Henry Rifle! The feel and finish of this firearm is excellent and you may continue to brag about the quality of the wood you use for your stocks. I purchased this rifle (youth model) to enjoy inexpensive and instructional shooting with my son Daniel (age 6). You might find it amusing that when I took it home and pulled it out of the box Daniel smiled real big and said, “that’s John Wayne’s gun!” My goal is to pass this fine rifle down to him as he gets older as I hope to purchase a Golden Boy for myself when fiances so allow. Allow me to say that since other “American” firearm manufacturers have turn to foreign countries to produce their product, that I can’t help but have a sense of pride when I look along the barrel of our new Henry and see “Made in Brooklyn, NY.” Keep up the good work and I hope to send a picture some day with my son and I both holding Henrys!
All I can say is….WOW! The Golden Boy is one of the best looking rifles I’ve ever seen and simply the best I’ve ever owned. And you know how I feel about the Survival Rifle.
A BIG thanks for both.
I took them both immediately to my ex-father-in-law’s house. He was a collector of both handguns and rifles until his stroke about 2 years ago. I knew that seeing these 2 very cool rifles would brighten his day…and I think the pictures tell the story.
I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to pry the Golden Boy out of Joe’s hands. He used to load his own ammo until his illness prevented him from seeing.
His day was much better after this.
Thanks again, not only for your generous gift, but for making an old man’s day
