    So I'll pull it out and have it sit with me for awhile so I can admire it. Then it goes back in the safe.

    And another 39A goes into the safe, and the price of all 39's creep upward an infinitesimal amount!

    Catherine,
    I have 2 Henry's but I agree with Lonnie that you should get the Henry Pump Octagon in .22 mag, since it would complement your Ruger Single-Six (unless you don't ever shoot mags, then get the .22 LR). But with your lever action and single action you are crying out for a pump to go with them. I have to admit as much fun as the lever 39A is, a pump is about the most fun you can have with a repeater rifle that is legal. I have been shooting my old Remington .22 pump lately and boy is that a kick. Plus the Henry with the Octagon barrel gives you that Old West touch we all love.

    Hey....as mentioned, I just picked up a Henry, it was the H001 model, the plain jane, nothing fancy model.....I am quite please with her, smoothest action I have ever worked. For me, I just wanted a knock around, .22 truck gun. I have to admit, I was tempted to go with pump.

    Mine is very light, acurate, and a hoot to shoot. 39's are rare here, people just don't give them up and the stores can't keep them long enough and the stores have been getting a little proud with their prices.

    So, the 22 Henry went home with me and I no regrets and a whole lot of fun!!!

    I have the H001 and H001M and love both of them! They are about as economical as you can get in a .22 lever action and the customer service from Henry is unrivaled. Lifetime warranty whether you are the original purchaser or not.

    If you have a problem with your hands I would recommend you stay with the H001 because of the weight and balance. I have neuropathy and osteoarthritis in my hands and I can handle the Henry's just fine.

    My dilemma is whether to shoot one of those or my Marlin 981T when I go out target shooting.

    Re: I looked at 3 Henry rifles today in 22LR~~~

    I am considering the same Catherine. I bought my son the H001L about 7 years ago if I remember correctly. He has quite a gun family for someone in their mid-twenties including a Marlin CBC .45 colt that he deer hunts with. He's a serious birdhunter and has an assortment of fine shotguns. You ask my son what his favorite gun is and he'll tell you that Henry H001L.

    Now for me, the H001L and any Golden Boy won't be considered because the H001L is just tooooo short for my personal tastes and the GB just doesn't feel right though I have never shot one. I am considering the Frontier as I like the octagon barrel and it feels really good in my hands. I would however be happy with their H001 model as well. Whatever I get, I will also order the large loop as an accessory from Henry.

    Good luck with your pick ... I don't think you can go wrong .

    BJM,

    I'm going to Ask Santa to bring me one of those Big Loop Lever's for my Frontier this coming Christmas. I had been thinking about it,, and sometime's,, the regular lever,, just feels a little bit cramped.

    I'm gonna sit myself down right now,, and Write The Big Guy a Nice Letter,

    Re: I looked at 3 Henry rifles today in 22LR~~~

    Folks,

    Thank you for all of the information and I apologize for getting back here 'late'. I had to get some important papers and post office mail finished first.

    I did not get to see a Henry PUMP rifle - just the 3 that I mentioned that were in lever action styles in my first post. I will call around and see if any other stores have Henry rifles IN stock too. MM looked for me the other day 'outside' of our college town and he could not find any. We did see the 3 that I mentioned in the one store here in town - the former SW store. My local small store does not have any in stock to look at either.

    The PUMP action sounds COOL but I did not see any of these in the store. I never shot one of those styles or 'pump actions' in a rifle. I will have MM explain this to me too. Please excuse my ignorance there - I have never had the opportunity to see or shoot one in person. I never noticed them in a store either.

    http://www.henryrepeating.com/rifle-pump.cfm

    Model Number H003T
    Action Type Pump
    Caliber .22 LR/.22 Short
    Capacity 15 rounds
    Length 38.5"
    Barrel Length 19.75"
    Weight 6 lbs.
    Stock American Walnut
    Sights Adjustable rear, beaded front sight
    Finish Blued barrel

    If I do get another rifle and in a HENRY brand... I will get it in a 22LR caliber since that is the caliber that I shoot 95% of the time now. I shoot 22LR in my Ruger super single six too. I don't shoot WMR, I hardly ever did shoot it, but I think that we have a tiny amount of it left here among tons of 22LR ammunition. I deliberately want to keep my firearm calibers the same for my ammunition stock. His, hers and ours 22LR ammunition stock.

    Plus 22LR ammunition is much cheaper for me to shoot compared to 22WMR too.

    I know that I do adore and love to shoot lever action and single shot rifles... I still like that Sharps style in 22LR.

    Thanks again and I will reread this again later on.

    Take care!

    Catherine

    Re: I looked at 3 Henry rifles today in 22LR~~~

    To the one poster who asked me a question about why I call myself a minimalist.

    I am a minimalist in my lifestyle more and more.

    In some things in life, I always believed and still believe that Less Is More.

    So I keep going back to certain specific styles/actions of My Favorite Firearms and I shoot 22LR the most now due to my arthritic hands and old accident issues. So compared to what I used to own and shoot in ALL kinds of various calibers... I am a minimalist there too!

    Take care.

    Thanks to you too.

    You have my sincere sympathy when it comes to your hand issues.

    I am happy that I can still shoot but I take more 'breaks' now when I do shoot. I never used to do that even in the cold weather! I used to just switch from a bigger caliber to 22LR and back again!

    Plus I want to keep up my self defense skills even if it is with using a 22LR caliber firearm the most now.

    Take care!
