Customer Letters

larry-mJust wanted to say thank you for the donation of the rifle for the Hatfield and McCoy Mine rescue competition. We had 19 teams from around the US from New Mexico to Pennsylvania.  The Team from Pennsylvania won the overall traveling Trophy (GUN) and it will return next year and once again be put up for grabs.  Your support has made this Competition grow and your donation was a hit among all competitors.  Had several people said they never knew you all produced these guns and wanted to buy one. So I sent them to your web-site.  I hope you sell many guns to these Coal Miners.  Here is a picture of the winning team and I will send you a write up from the paper when it is finished.  Again thank you for your support.

rick-martinHi Anthony:

Last Sunday I was able to attend an Eagle Scout ceremony. Brothers Austin and Scott Johnson both received their Eagle Scout Badges. They were also both given Boy Scout Henry Rifles by their parents. I would love to share a photograph with you if you could reply with an email address. It is a very nice image and I am sure you enjoy it. FYI, I also own a golden Boy myself and it is one of my favorite rifles!

tomm-swannIn 2009, my wife and I were blessed with triplet grandchildren. For their first birthday I wanted to give them something very special that they could keep for their lifetime and maybe even pass on to the next generation. After watching your infomercial on TV, I made the decision to buy each of them their own Golden Boy 22.

When I contacted Henry by phone, you personally answered the call and was very gracious in helping me personalize my order of the Golden Boys with special serial numbers for the rifles using the names and birthdates of the triplets. I even ordered a Golden Boy HMR 17 for myself. I placed the order through my friend Any Story of Storys Sporting Goods in Opelika, Alabama. I really appreciate that you took the time to personally help me.

My son and daughter-in-law are both in law enforcement in Alabama and absolutely love the rifles and although I have not caught them, I have a suspicion that they might sneak them out to the range when the grandkids are asleep. They are looking forward to teaching the little ones how to safely handle and shoot the Golden Boys when they reach the appropriate age.

I have enclosed a picture of the triplets with their Golden Boys on their 5th birthday. I hope you can use it in your catalog or advertising.

Thank you again

Mr. Imperato,

Thank you for your email inquiry on my gun search.  I’m happy to say although my search was unproductive in the local area I did find a factory new Henry Original on-line and picked it up a couple of weeks ago from my FFL.  Although my schedule has not permitted any range time I can attest this is a beautiful firearm.

This is my third Henry rifle as I also own the Golden and Big boys as well.  I’m certain you receive countless satisfied customer comments daily on the quality of the Henry and the stunning detail in workmanship, but I feel I would be remiss if I didn’t comment on another significant factor on why I choose to be a loyal Henry customer.  I am very pleased to see the generosity your company exhibits with financial donations to worth while causes, especially those for families of very ill children and also supporting our countries youth.  Being a retired Air Force member with 22 years of service I also truly appreciated the articles in the Henry Repeater that honored our military veterans.  Thank you.  That completely solidifies why a choose to spend my hard earned dollars on Henry firearms.

By the way I’m still searching for a Golden Boy 17 HMR when they become available.  Your staff is already working to keep me abreast when they will be released to the dealers.   I’ve been trying to locate one for approximately two years.

Thank you again for your time

Mr. Imperato,

Yesterday my wife pick up the .30/30 Brass for me. Just in time for my birthday.

I can’t thank you enough for your time and efforts in helping me get this rifle.  It is absolutely beautiful.

Your efforts are a true example of the reasons to buy American.  The customer service of your company is next to non and I am extremely happy to be a proud owner of a new Henry rifle.  It is efforts like this and dedication to customers that create a lifelong customer base.  Between the quality of your product and your loyalty to your customers and military is outstanding.  I WILL be a lifelong customer and I look forward to continued ownership of Henry Rifles.

Thank you.

I appreciate your communication to help me find a special Henry.  I did find the model I was looking for at “the Sportsman’s Shop” in New Holland, PA. They are a great dealer to work with, and their inventory of Henry rifles is impressive.They had a Big Boy .357 mag in stock and I gladly purchased it that day. I have the Golden Boy .22 mag and the Golden Boy .22 LR in my collection as well. The craftsmanship is superb in all three!  They are beauties and fun to show off to my shooting friends.

Thank you for your fine product and customer follow up. I love to buy American and I love your rifles!

I purchased a 44mag Big Boy for my son as an high school graduation gift this year. He has put the rifle to work this year during deer season. I thought you might enjoy this picture of his success. We both carried our Big Boys in the deer woods for the first time as Ohio just passed the law to allow pistol cartridge rifles for deer hunting. I am sure this will not be the last story of success with our Henry’s. Thanks for the workmanship in the rifles. They are a treat to carry and shoot. Keep up the good work.

Love my HENRY .22 magnum. The action is smooooooth!!! Went through 50 rds in no time. Sighted in at 25 yds the last 30 or so rds in approximately a 1″ space. This lever rifle is awesome.
Not bad shooting for a 65 yr old ! What a birthday gift.

Hey—and its AMERICAN MADE !!!

Thanks Mr. Imperato

Yours truly,

Bob Curtis

Just wanted to say you have outdone yourself with the American Beauty. I’m at a gun show today I never seen that done before. It is awesome! I don’t know how you made the flower stand out so beautifully with that copper color but it is sweet.  Couldn’t resist, had to walk out with one. Keep up the great work.

Mime and Rodney BarnesWe were honored to meet Mr. Anthony Imperato at the 2014 NRA conference in Indianapolis. His genuine spirit and care for his customers really warmed our hearts and increased our pride in our ownership of Henry guns.

Of course we are happy to receive the fireside mugs( HM001) that Mr. Imperato has offered. However, I also want to take this time to express my gratitude for his and all of Henry employee’s time and care for their products. We have and shoot often, a classic carbine ..22. This past Christmas, I surprised my husband with another Henry gun, a ..357 Big Boy.  I am overwhelmingly proud of my husband. He has served his country in two major capacities, as a CWO3 with the United States Marine Corp Reserve for 22 years, with two tours of duty in Iraq and as a police sergeant for over 25 years.  As you can imagine, many guns have passed through his hands and yet, the Big Boy is his favorite!

Please pass our sincere gratitude along.

Best wishes,

Mime and Rodney Barnes Dublin, Ohio
