Dear Mr. Anthony Imperato,
Yesterday I took my two daughters to our Sportsman’s Warehouse to look for a .22 rifle for the oldest one. While we were looking at different models (of other brands) I asked if I could see a Henry.
A year or so ago I had seen a TV spot about your rifles and your company philosophy. That sparked my interest and I even ordered a catalog and went to your website and watched all the videos you have posted there. Just listening to you speak (on RFD-TV) made me want to own a Henry rifle. You are so passionate about your guns and our country that I just loved listening to you. (You really should have a show of your own!)
Please don’t be offended by this but your accent reminds me of Chuck Schumer speaking. Except I can’t stand listening to him and I love listening to you! It’s refreshing to hear that accent saying things that I agree with for a change. Please believe me no offense is intended in comparing you with him. I shouldn’t have even done it. Please forgive me.
So… I was handed a beautiful walnut stock on a Henry Lever Action .22 rifle. I was amazed by the beauty and fine finish on the wood. I remembered from your RFD-TV appearance that the walnut wood came from (among other states) Missouri the state I grew up in. I remembered you detailing how different parts of the gun came from different states and that all of it is made in America. These were the reasons that you gave to make me want to own a Henry firearm.
As I stood there working the action and inspecting the excellent quality one of my daughters stepped back away from the counter and started talking on her cellphone. She soon returned and said, “Daddy I think you should have that rifle for Christmas! I’ve already talked to mom and she’s okay with it.” Well to make this long story short I am now the PROUD owner of this fine American made firearm (Serial # 561053H). I appreciate my daughters and my wife for many things and I appreciate this gift from them this year (a little early) for Christmas.
Thank you for producing this fine firearm and for the quality you put into it. Thank you for your attention to detail. Thank you for your contribution to our way of life and your love for our country in operating an American company. Keep up the great work!
Thank you again! And by the way, we did leave the store with a .22 for my daughter as well.
