New Henry Lover

Post by Old Syko » Fri Jun 14, 2019 6:29 pm

New Old guy here. Recently started picking up some Henry's and have no idea why it took me so long. My latest is the side gate 38-55 I got a month or so ago. This is not only beautiful but a real shooter also. Got plenty of questions and hopefully I can offer a little help to others. 65 years old and been retired for nearly 12 years. Been an avid shooter since birth and a handloader for over 50 years. Just happy to still be here.

Welcome and congrats on a new Henry that's getting lots of good reviews! It's a beauty, that's for sure and glad to hear it shoots as good as it looks. Look forward to hearing more from you and how you and your Henrys are getting along. Lots of reloaders here, too, me included, so there's lots of sharing!
