Henry Customer Letters
Here's Danielle she's just 6 but is already into the shooting sport, she Love's to plink away at bottle's and can's with her .22mag from Henry...thank you for making such a great little gun for Danielle.
Anthony, sorry that it's taking so long in sending some photos of our Henry Shoot Out. All of our friends were pleasantly surprised of the support that you gave. A year ago no one in our group owned a Henry, now as you can see we have ten in the group and counting. Thanks again,

I have owned several Winchesters Marlins lever gun and none were as smooth operating as the Henry .44 mag. Plus I just fired it last weekend for the first time. Boy was i surprised the rifle hardly kicked at all and the accuracy was great. The rifle placed shot after shot in about the same place each time and no problems with the action at all. The action was the smoothes i have ever had on a lever gun.Keep up the good work I am very proud of the rifle and the craftasmanship that went into it.
I want to thank you and your staff for the great support for our recent Eby Ranch Shoot-out. Your shipment of catalogs, hats and shirts was a real crowd pleaser! As you will note from the attached pictures we had a great time and plan to have the Henry Rifle Competition as a semi-annual event.
As previously reported, I bought my first gun at the age of 62 - a 22LR Golden Boy. When I brought it to the fall shoot-out, everyone oohed and aahed - especially after seeing the results on the target! Well, short story is at the spring shoot there were 9 more Henry rifles with several more in the offing! Not bad, eh?
Thanks again for helping make this shoot-out our best ever! "Buckskin" Barb Henry Carter

I, would like to personally thank you, for this incredible rifle! my son, who is 8 years old,shot a bullseye (dead center), on his first shot, with his Hoo1 rifle, right out of the box at 50 ' He now has a passion for shooting sports! He brags about his Henry rifle now, at the gun club! I am proud to pass on this tradition, from Father to Son, made possible by your outstanding Rifles! sincerly one of your loyal fans!!
I am very happy with my .22 LR Every weekend I'm out there on my Honda, smokin jack rabbits here in Southern, Utah. I've made many 200 yrd shots. It is very accurate. On average I get about 10 rabbits a day. Hope you like the photo.
We have five acres of woods with a small target range which is great for a Henry carbine! Our house in the background was built in 1798 by James Galloway, a blacksmith. It's windy out today so we just went to an indoor gun range with some friends who wanted to learn to shoot targets. It was Michelle's first time shooting. The number of bull's eyes from our little Henry was amazing.
Thanks for your interest and advice on cleaning.
Disabled Sportsmen of America would like to thank you for you kind donations. We recently had a turkey shoot where your donations where used for prizes.

Good morning Anthony;
Attached is a photo of Sarah Hall, my god-daughter, and daughter of my supervisor, Steve Hall. Notice that she is holding a Henry .22 Golden Boy and that is her first rabbit, which she ate that night. The Golden Boy was given to her brother, Ryan, on behalf of John Blake, who won it during the '03 Governor's Symposium on North American Hunting Heritage. John is from Canada, and would have not been able to easily get the firearm home at the time. Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your friendship and hope to hear from you soon. May God Bless and have a beautiful Easter. Kindest regards,

My daughter "Sugar Cookie" has a 22 Henry and has been shooting 5 months. She recently shot "winter range" a national cowboy action shooting competition where she took sixth place.
Thanks for these fine firearms right here in America. Even though I bought this for my granddaughter it's the style and action that I have always wanted for myself. At least I'll get to use it once in a while, with her permission, since I'll be keeping it stored in my safe. All the best to you and yours,
Henry Repeating Rifles,
I've owned my Model: H001 for about 9 years now and I love this rifle. It's best qaulities include...it's short, it's well balanced, and it's extremely accurate. Unbelievably enough this rifle shoots accurately when dirty. I can shoot all day and still get great accuracy. One day I took it to the range and was hitting a soda can sized target repeatedly at 100 yards with my low power scope on it and I had a fellow shooter comment that my .30 cal. was awfuly quiet. I couldn't help but laugh; I told him it was my Henry .22 that I was shooting with my favorite brand of .22 LR ammunition. This rifle will be one that I give to my son once he gets older, it's definitely a rugged rifle.
Thanks for producing great rifles that have a classic look.
Thank you very much as it is getting time to take our daughter out gopher shooting this little rifle is way better than any other starter rifle on the market I did a lot of research before we got for her as a Christmas gift in 2004. we found that shooting at water balloons with shotshells was the most fun and easiest way to get her interested in shooting. here are a couple of pictures of her. we are also looking at a couple of more lever guns later on
Mr. Imperato- My Golden Boy is chambered in .17HMR. The 17HMR has exceptional performance even past 100 yards. A H004 Golden Boy with a scope could take advantage of this performance, but would not look like the period firearm I believe you intended it to be. I read-up on the Marbles tang sight, and finally had one mounted on my Golden Boy. The results were impressive. Now I have a classic 19th century-style rifle that can place accurate shots at small game and targets.
I purchased a Henry Golden Boy .22LR last spring for my 11-year old and I to shoot. We dreamed and saved for one for several years. We have had a great time with it. It shoots and looks great. We are very proud of it and I'm sure it will be in our family for many generations. I truly admire the fact that the rifle and its' parts are Made in America. We need more of that. Thank you for doing it right.

Dear Mr. Imperato,
I did receive my Henry Catalog. I thank you very much. I have now added my second Henry Rifle. I purchased a Golden Boy .22 Win Mag, which I plan on passing to my children when they become old enough in a few years.
Everyone to whom I have shown it is duly impressed. The great design and the wonderfully smooth action speak for themselves. I can't decide whether to shoot it or wait and let my son be the first to shoot it. It would be a long wait as he is just turned one. In the mean time I plan to start saving for Henry Big Boy. Thanks again for the totally cool products you produce!!!!

Dear Mr. Imperato, We (my husband, Walt, my daughter, Katie, and I) just read an article about Henry Repeating Arms in the Heartland USA magazine (Nov/Dec 2006). It was written by Joe Byers. We all found it to be an excellent article on an extremely unique company. It's not very often today to find a company that operates on good old-fashion values, while producing a quality selection of merchandise. You truly care about your employees, and the article brings this out. You also 'give back' by donating to charities. We live in a suburb of Pittsburgh, and Katie was proud to know that the steel in her Henry Golden Boy .22 LR came from near her hometown. When you answered our first e-mail I thought "sure, the president of Henry really answers all the e-mails." I was skeptical. I was happy to be proven wrong by this article. Kudos to you, Mr. Imperato. Quality leadership running a quality business. You just can't find that in America very often. Walt is a union carpenter, but he wants to know if he can drive from Clairton, PA every day to come work for you! What is Marian making for breakfast? We are going to cut this article out and keep it with Katie's Golden Boy. We are impressed. We know we sent photos of Katie with her Golden Boy before. This one is her dad's favorite, and he insisted we send it. Proud dad. Hope you enjoy it. We look forward to making future purchases of Henry rifles. Thank you for being the kind of business Americans can truly be proud of, not only because they own one of your rifles, but also because you run a business that anyone would be proud to work for.

I promised I would send along a photo of the first predator taken with my new Henry 22 magnum lever action. He didn't have a chance. I took your advice and tested and used Remington ammunition. It feeds very smooth and I dare say I've been bragging to everyone about the results. Please post this letter and picture in your letters column, and I thank you for producing such a fine firearm.
