Dear Mr. Imperato;
I just wanted to drop you a note to say “Thank You” for providing a quality product that will last for generations.
I purchased a Model Mini Bolt Action .22 caliber Series H005 with the stainless steel barrel as a gift for my youngest grandson’s 8th birthday. As a long time volunteer with the Boys Scouts, I wanted his first gun to be a well built, easy to handle, and safe product for him to learn proper gun handling. This rifle met and exceeded all of my requirements. That it is a single shot gun was a requirement from my Scouting activities. The double safety insured that care would be taken before each shot.
After completing all of the requirements in the Boy Scout Rifle Shooting Merit Badge Book, as well as the NRA youth safety program, we went to the range for his first shoot. As you can see from the pictures, we used eye and ear protection, and he followed all of the safety procedures he had learned. What came as a bit of a surprise was the accuracy he achieved “Out of the box”. At fifty yards, he was able to shoot a very respectable sequence.
My grandson is now 12, and has taken his first deer with a 20 gauge single shot shotgun. Despite his being older and stronger, all of our trips to the range still include at least one box of .22’s for his Henry. After each trip, he carefully cleans and oils his gun. He has told me that he intends to use this in the future, when his own son or daughter goes to the range for their first shoot.
You are quite right in your commercials when you say that a Henry will be a gun that you are proud to own. To that, I would add that a Henry is a gun that you will be proud to pass on.
