Thanks for your service, Gary....and welcome from the Show-Me-State.

Interesting timing with your comment that you "shoot a lot of BP muzzleloaders." I just got my first BP ball & cap pistol this week. Starting a new adventure with a different type of firearm.

Many folk here will look forward to hear how you like your new Henry .45-70 SS. Of course, if you have visited the forum before joining, you know that pictures really tell a good part of the story, too! ;)

Enjoy your time on the HRF.
