Expanding a little on my opening post. As I shared there, discovering my first Henry was accidental happenstance. I was with my son and a friend. They were working with a store clerk to out fit their MRs. Entertaining for a while, but got bored with it so was looking over the other rifles in the racks. Then you see there was this drop dead gorgeous shiny brass H009B that caught my eye and wouldn't let go. Got to touch it and play with it a bit and handed it back. WHAT! NOOOO, YOU SAY. No worries, I came back the next day and took it home. I was hooked on first sight. Tried to resist an impulsive buy ... could only hold out until the next day. Took it out back to try and scare up a nutria. None that day, but tromping around, that beaut was getting heavy.

So started the need to accessorize! First up a sling. H009B has no swivel studs and I wasn't going to drill holes in it to mount them. So I went shopping for a pocket or harness sling and swivel stud tube clamp. The web search lead me to Brass Stacker. While ordering their harness sling for the H009B I noticed the size of the swivel stud tube clamp diameter looked too small for the diameter of the mag tube on my H009B. So measured my tube and yup bigger that the clamp they were offering. I called them on it. They said the tube clamp fit the H009B they had. So that put me into another web search for why my tube was bigger. A couple things happened. I learned there are a gen1 and gen 2 H009B. Mines a gen2 and Brass Stacker's was a gen1. Ok mystery solved. In solving that mystery the 2nd thing occurred, I found this forum. Now mind you I don't join blogs, forums and other membership stuff that are on the web. The members here, the content they share and the manner in which it is shared, gave me pause. What a great forum! Like what happened with my first Henry, so likewise with being a member of my first online forum! The sum of it, I got here looking for a solution to a problem. I wasn't looking for a forum to join.

SH, did you select the 303lithgow moniker based on an Australian Lithgow bolt-action rifle? What was the model and caliber of it? I bet you might have some interesting history to share....possibly another thread line?

Sometimes not looking results in the best find. And others have said the same about our HRF: "What a great forum!"
