Henry Customer Letters
I just wanted to write you and thank you for making a fine product to introduce young children to a wonderful sport. Attached I have included two pictures of my daughters with their Christmas presents. I purchased 3 of your 22 Mini Bolt Rifles for my 5 year old Triplet Girls. They had each practiced with a stock Mini Bolt during this falls Deer season. I took each one of them up to Tejon Ranch here in Southern California to go deer hunting with me. Those were the 3 best weekends of my life. Getting to spend one on one time is very rare as a parent of triplets and the girls love practicing with the little 22 but one complaint kept coming up "Dad when do I get my own rifle. Why do I have to share a rifle with my sisters? You don't share your rifles with Mommy!" I knew I had to fix this situation because everyone needs their own rifle. I purchased 2 more rifles and sent all 3 to Charlie Sisk of Sisk Rifles and asked him to personalize the rifles by painting the stocks in my daughters favorite colors. As you can see they are a great hit. Your product is perfectly suited to teach young children the joys of shooting and the quality and function are excellent. Thanks again for making it easy to introduce my 3 girls to a sport I love very much.

I bought my daughter a Mini Bolt for Christmas this year. I selected the Mini Bolt for her due to her small stature. She is six years old and loves to go to the range with dad. The quality of this rifle is impeccably impressive. You should have seen the smiles when she opened her own rifle.
Thank you for making such a high quality product and not forgetting about our future generations of firearm owners.
It is great that your company obviously cares about your clients as much as you do. As a small business owner, I understand the importance of your time and fully appreciate you taking the time to personally respond to your company's emails.
Best regards and wishes for a successful 2005!

I just want to thank you for making such a fine .22 lever action LR. I am the proud new owner of my "Henry" and I love it! I'm practicing for Cowboy Action Shooting!! I can hit a dime at 50 yards.
This is my son Brandon Welsh with his new Big Boy 44. He worked for me on the Farm all summer to earn enough money to buy it. Now he is hoping to kill a Deer with it. Thanks to Henry Repeating Arms for making such a fine firearm.
Mr. Imperato, I wanted to share with you our first deer with the Henry Big Boy. This is a beautiful 9 point buck shot with the Henry Big Boy at 100 yards up hill. We made no adjustments to the gun it shot perfect when we received it from you. The Whitetail dressed out at 225 lbs. Let me tell you that this is the best big game rifle I have ever used. I hit the buck at a 100 yards in the neck and he dropped in his tracks, right where I was aiming which is tremendous with regular sites. Now I hope our entry in the Campbells Challenge will be good enough to get a place in the championships. Our camera did not supply the best quality video, so we are looking to upgrade it as soon as possible for our next hunt. Hopefully a new sponsor will help us in this area. We are greatful to use such a high quality firearm for our hunts, we will be posting these photos as well as our story of the hunt with the Henry Rifle on the showmewhitetails website. Thank you,
This is Matt Coverdale of Riverton Kennels and his dog CH. Lemschlogs Gem Dandi. They won the Regional Championship and got the Henry Lever Action rifle. He's really pleased with the rifle.
Wanted to share a picture of my son Justin's (age 6) first squirrel hunt. I couldn't have been prouder.
All the best,
Thought you might like to know that my son is the Washington State Boy's Subjunior Champion as of last weekend's Westmatch.
The subjuniors shot .22s. My son's rifle was his pretty little Golden Boy whose silk smooth action never failed him through 10 stages.
Thanks for a good product and thanks again for the replacement part!
A very happy and smiling father,
Dear Henry - I thought you might like the target pic Terri shot at 40 yards while we were camped this weekend. Not bad, but the real kicker came later Sunday afternoon as she shot clay pigeons at a measured 225 yards with the Golden Boy, open sights. Sure, it took a few shots to find the range but once she did it was great fun watching that gun perform.
We want to thank you, once again, for the kind and generous donation of a Henry Mini Bolt rifle for our Shooting Range. The rifle is a great hit and has been used by many of our Scouts who attend Camp Whitsett.
Attached is a photo of one the the Scouts holding the rifle just after shooting.
picture of me, the rocky, and "Golden Boy" !!!
Mr. Clayton Shores received a Henry Rifle for his ninth birthday from his Grandmother and Granddad. Here are photos of his firt day at the range. Mr. Shores comment.."awesome!!"
Dear Mr. Imperato,
My son, Peter, and I were thrilled to meet you and to see your entire product line at the NRA convention in Pittsburgh.
You had quite an impression on him; since meeting you, he has told the story over and over, perfecting his Brooklyn accent, when he quotes you, "I like the way you look, kid." Since he's only 8 years old, it's pretty funny to hear.
Thank you for making a great product that has made shooting so accessible to my son.

The two words that best describe this rifle are "absolutely" and "awesome". My wife got it for me as a birthday present, and it's going right in my pack for squirrel hunting. As a US Marine, my buddies and I have been able to shoot some interesting firearms, but we were all really surprised by this one. Very accurate, and once you find the right rounds, really reliable. With CCI Velocitor hollow points at 20 yards rapid fire, all but one shot hit within the 3/4" ring. Everyone at the range wants to see it-hold it-shoot it. I love it. I am definitely looking forward to my next Henry birthday.
Mr Imperato. Well you did it again, I just took possesion of another one of your fine rifles. I had purchased a Golden Boy for my 10 yr old daughter last year, and was so impressed with the fit, finish, feel and performance of the rifle. It became apparant to me that good old dad deserved one of your fine products as well.
I took it out of the box yesterday and made off to the range and what a pleasure! The action was smooth the performance was excellent and the experience memorable. There were several other shooters at the range and they all without exception tried the rifle and came to the same conclusion. What an excellent rifle!
I guess if I were to sum it up as to where your products stand, I would say this. I have a couple of hundred different collector firearms at hand here in my home, arms from all the well known manufacteres, spanning two centuries of progress, those who are still producing and those who are now just apart of the fabric of history. But the ones that have filled myself and my daughters hands the last several times we have gone shooting have been exclusivly Henrys,, and I see no change in sight! Thanks for another fine piece of art in action. If I could buy stock in Henrys I would. Makes me proud to be an American to look at and use your firearms. I could say volumns, but it would cut into my shooting time.
Your faithful customer.

Hello again Anthony,
Here's a few pics of Josiah James (my 6 year old) with his rifle. I finally shortened the "pull" by 2 inches with the extra stock you sent me. It is the most perfect gift he's ever had! I am amazed at the quality of every feature of this fine firearm! He loves it and now the 3 others want one like it too. They are all becoming expert firearm handlers with safety being top priority with each moment out there with guns. What a great family activity!
Thank you for providing us with a remarkable firearm that is absolutely perfect for the beginning shooters as well as the more advanced! The Mini-Bolt is awesome!
Thanks again for your many responses to my e-mails. Remember, I am a connection to good elk hunting out west if you ever want to hunt elk. I'd love to return the friendship!
To Everyone at Henry:
Enclosed is a picture of my dad, Glen Duncan with his new Henry Golden Boy 22 rifle. His old 22 rifle (from one of your competitors) was getting in bad shape from years of bouncing around in the pickup and throwing lead at all shapes and sizes of varmits. He raises cattle in the hills north of Kearney, Nebraska. last year he fed some of my cattle, but he didn't think I owed him anything for feed. I knew he had his eye on a Henry 22 rifle, but probably would not go buy one himself. So I fixed his wagon, I bought one and gave it to him. Maybe next time he will let me pay for the feed, or maybe not. He tried to act like he was upset with me, but it was not very convincing with that big grin on his face. Thanks for being part of a day with my dad that I will always remember.
I bought a Mini Bolt for my daughter and in the frigid North there is nothing better!! I hunt hard in severe weather conditions and this little gem has accompanied me on the trapline as well and has never failed to impress me. 17 generations of French and Indian in my family and this one will go in the family heirlooms with the other legends.
