Customer Letters

Joe-BankerI thought that I would never find a better rifle than my Big Boy rifle in .45 Colt.  Then I got my Big Boy Carbine in .44 Magnum!  Now I can’t decide between the two – so I’ll just have to plan on another Henry!

Hello, we are a Henry dealer here in Lapeer, Michigan and wanted to pass along a great story regarding one of our recent rifle sales.

A younger Gentleman came into our shop wanting to see the Henry American Beauty .22 rifle, which we carry in stock. He was very taken with the rifle’s quality and workmanship and proceeded to put it on layaway. As I started the paperwork, the customer mention he was buying it for his daughter. I responded that not only was the rifle a wonderful gift, but he was creating a family heirloom for his future grand and great-grand children. Then I asked “how old is your Daughter?” His reply really touched my heart when he said “she isn’t born yet”!

Weeks later, both soon-to-be parents came to pickup the rifle with their Daughter’s birth only days away. Attached is a picture of one of God’s newest American beauties, Baby Jolene with her very own Henry American Beauty rifle.

I have shared this story with many customers, one of which was brought to tears. Knowing your company is a family business, I felt compelled to share this wonderful story. Thank you for making a quality American product. Customers rave about your rifles and we are proud to be a Henry dealer.

I’m the proud owner of a brand new Henry Big Boy. Its not enough to say that this is just a fine gun. I’m a retired forest service law enforcement officer and have owned, shot , and been around many different kinds of guns my entire life, as have my whole family. I’ve never been more proud of a gun as I am this one. Not only is the quality and workmanship outstanding, this gun is also a genuine shooter. Best of all, its made in America. My thanks and gratitude to a fine company who produces works of art that can still be used by the American family for hunting, pleasure shooting, or just show.

I am attaching several photos of the gun ceremony and presentation. Capt. Espinoza accepted the rifle on behalf of Stg. Huggard at the NRA banquet. He couldn’t be there because of a last minute job obligation. The Huggard’s visited us at the ranch and then we met them for dinner and took pictures with the rifle. I have also attached his bio. Please let me know if you need anything else. Sorry it took so long to put this together, but it was hard to make the schedule’s work with the Huggard family. If you need any info on the pictures, let me know. (I will send the pictures in two emails. Let me know if you don’t get them.)

Thank you,

Dear Mr President (doesn’t that sound like it needs a fanfare!)

I finally managed to have a long shooting session with my Henry Golden Boy a week ago and I am absolutely delighted with the rifle. It is solid, smooth, the lever action is soooo smooth and positive. Importantly, it is consistently  accurate with infinitesimal recoil. It feels like a proper rifle should. I shot 50 rounds in one session without any shoulder or back ache – and for me aged 73, that’s an accomplishment. I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it. And I’d be happy for you to use that testimonial.

Have a good life.
With regards,

Attached is a photo of me and the new Big Boy I purchased as a birthday present for myself.  It’s a great rifle to shoot and it looks amazing.
