Just thought you might be interested. This photo was taken on our backyard gun range earlier this summer (2012).
Here are my (92-year-old) father, Ralph, and my (87-year-old) mother, Lois on our back yard range this past summer. They had been enjoying themselves with their rifles.
Ralph, a World-War 2 veteran having served in the Pacific learned to shoot on a .22 while in high school in the 1930s. Lois just always enjoyed shooting when opportunities presented. They will be celebrating their 62nd wedding anniversary on November 7.
Take care and best regards,

I decided that he needed some thing that would shine at the range, well on august 14th after 2 months of waiting it finally came, a Henry .22 golden boy rifle – it was worth every penny. After looking at the detail on that rifle nothing comes close out of the box beauty than your golden boy/big boy series of rifles.in short “impecable”!!!! it is just an exqusite thing of beauty,and we were the talk of the range.
Well when it was finally my turn to shoot it it had an authentic feel to it, the weight,lever action sighting and again not mention the detaialed craftmanship made it all feel so incredable. the balance the feeding the ejecting all felt and acted harmonious, i had a piece of americana in my hands that cannot be matched by any other.
I just want to say that you and everybody responsible in building my rifle made me feel what a grandpa should feel, i know long after im gone that ole henry is going to be the hands of his grand kids and he will understand how i felt, here is a photo taken in 2011 -thanks again for a life time of more memories to come.

Dear Henry Repeating,
My 11 year old son Caleb shot his first deer this year, it was a buck! only 25 minutes into the opening youth deer hunting season here in Wisconsin, this buck walked rite into Caleb’s site. We were in a tower stand so he was able to bench rest his new Henry “Big Boy” .44 magnum. I assisted him in by keeping him quiet and calm until the proper shot presented itself. With a grunt noise I stopped the buck to grab his attention for the few seconds Caleb needed to place the shot. Caleb touched off the .44 and dropped the buck rite where he stood about 25 yards away, no tracking required.
The excitement and joy this young man experienced in these few seconds it took to drop this buck will always be in our treasured memories. We compliment the fine craftsmanship and swift power of the Henry “Big Boy” .44 mag. This rifle has received many compliments from our fellow hunters and shooters at the range and in the field. We would like to thank you for your quality workmanship your dedication to building rifles in the U.S.A.
Caleb received this rifle just a month ago due to his good grades in school and his interest in hunting. After this experience he has stated he is now hooked on hunting for good and cannot wait until our next outing.
Thank you again for the fine work you did on Caleb’s rifle he will cherish this for a lifetime.
Scott & Caleb Dauel
