Let's start with mine!

Used this Henry Original for IraqVeteran8888's YouTube Range Day last year. Tons of rain, lots of binary explosives, lots of noise, lots of fun.

I like how he is shouldering the rifle, elbows in and down. And do I see a nose/thumb weld? Can't be with that caliber.

Sure does look like a nose/thumb weld to me. We were shooting cowboy loads this day, so the recoil was incredibly light. Not to mention the barrel on this rifle alone weighs a good bit, which significantly reduces perceived recoil. No broken noses were had that day, and the rifle was shooting incredibly well.

I don't think people realize how accurate you can be with this hold. I built my .22LR Small Game Carbine to shoot like this. The way he is holding the receiver is also important. I bought a youth stock for it and can pull it in even tighter.

My plan is to own an H011 in the next few months. But they had to make it more challenging with Iron frame version. I'm seeing prices of $1895 for brass locally. Bud's listing is $1695. Anybody finding lower prices? This Henry is a stretch of my budget, but I feel it's like having a part of gun history. Ammo is averaging $50 a box, so it's not a plinker. Anybody tried black powder loads?

Dan, Thanks for starting off this area. Those are beautiful rifles.

I was privileged to see the Henry Original next to a genuine Henry Rifle on the coffee table at the taping of Gun Guru's in 2014. Henry sponsors the show and they were interviewing Mr. Imperato. He explained how he made the rifle the same way as the Original. It was fascinating.

Thanks Dan, now I know what my next Henry will be. It is truly a beautiful rifle.

My absolutely favorite part of Henrys (other rifle brands, too) is the wood furniture.
And the wood stock on the H011 you showed us is simply beautiful. Someone got a real gem there! :D

Thanks much for sharing the event and rifle photos, Dan.
