It followed me home and I had to keep it.

Henry Golden/Big Boy in .45 Long Colt. It needed a good home. What else could I do? Never been fired. Lever still factory wire-tied to stock, so it's new in the box. Got a decent deal, too.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

A real Henry repeater. Very nice. After a couple of years, I ended up with a Uberti version because I couldn't find an Henry anywhere.

Lucky man... Congrats!

You're going to love that Henry...and yes - I am jealous. Happy shooting!

You can't go wrong with a Henry ! I don't shoot my .45 Colt enough , but I burn though about 500 rds. of .38 in my Henry .357 every month.
