In 2005, 2006, My Dad, RR Myers NRA Endowment Life Member #000020857557, purchased a Henry Golden Boy, lever action .22 cal rifle #GB052987. His first grandson my nephew Seth 17 has actively shot 22 long distance and BPCR silhouette with him. Dad bought Seth’s first rifle a Winchester #67 bolt action, single shot when Seth was just two weeks old! However, that Golden Boy tops Seth “bucket list” of rifles to own !He knows that Grandpa has already willed that rifle to him but it’s not his yet!
Accordingly, I decided the first born of each of my two sons should have a Henry Golden Boy 22s. Both boys are enthusiastic hunters and target shooters Zachary, and Justin.
Dad ordered and delivered to me in July two Henry Golden Boys #273785 and #273916. See the enclosed photo of my first grandchild, Layton Dean Anderson, almost six months that day, with his Golden Boy #273785. How proud he looks!!! My younger son and wife have no children yet but the second rifle #273916 is ready for the first baby, boy or girl. Three Henrys, for three first born grandchildren.
For now both Golden Boys are secure in my gun safe, awaiting that first session of gun safety and target shooting. As you can see the Myers grandchildren own firearms and begin shooting at a tender age.
P.S. I might add that we inadvertently started something with that rifle order. The very next week after Dad picked up the Golden Boys, his dealer got five more! Cleaned out the distributor!
A proud grandfather,
