    What [bullet size] is the most sensible Henry?

    Besides the little black .22 caliber, what is the most sensible [bullet caliber/size] brass-parted Henry rifle? Although some might think it dumb to consider or refer to such a pretty, expensive lever-action rifle as being a sensible weapon for long-range shooting or for home defense. I want one of those guns!

    Tough call. I'd probably go for a pistol caliber like the .357. I agree, they are beautiful, and unique. I want one too

    No brass, but here's what I bought... Henry Repeating Arms Rifles ...in .22 mag with a Leupold scope.

    The Henry Rifle is a reach out and touch 'em, HD weapon.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I agree.... a .357 or a .22. I have a .357 Marlin and would like to have a .22 or .44 Henry.

    I like the 30-30 the best. It adds an honest 100yds of useful range over the .357 and still won't beat you up with recoil.

    .357 leverguns are nice though. I have one of them too.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    I have a Marlin Camp 9 that I am using as a defensive rifle, it shoots 9mm 147gr with 16" barrel. It will shoot a 2.5 to 3.0" group at 100yds. Thats good enough for me. It drops pretty quickly after that so no use in shooting any farther. 0 to 100yds is as good as it gets in defensive hardware. I have a Truglo Red Dot sight on it and it does real fine. Thought about getting a more expensive Red Dot on it but don't know why I can see thru it just fine. Has a 12 and a 15 round magazine that I use with it and that would keep a bad guys head down if ever needed to. I hope it never comes to that though. Hand gun is a Ruger SR9c with 11 and 17round magazine so I probably will never run out of ammo.
