    A good solid .22 is something everyone should have in their collection, I've currently been enjoying the heck out of my Henry .22, such a nice shooting little rifle.

    Cheap to shoot, and usually buy too.

    Yep my Henry is a boat anchor but is a tac driver... he only shot a tad over 1 MOA not that impressive....

    It didn't show, but I'll bet he wasn't shooting off handed.Big difference in shooting from a bench. I still like my little Marlin 75c that I have had for almost 25 years.

    I picked up a Marlin 60 at Wally World for $150 a few months back, great gun, fun and cheap to shoot.

    I realise It's private property,but when I shoot I like to be able to see anything at least 25 yards to the side and have a clear view behind my target

    Consider also, a Henry lever action. One of my favorites.

    I'm thinking about either a Henry lever action or a Marlin 39A, is there a reason you would go with one over the other? (I would get both, but my wife would throw a fit.)

    I have a Henry, and honestly have never handled a 39A (but I do have a Marlin 336), I personally like the straight stock of the Henry's for lever action rifles over the pistol grip of the Marlins, but that is a personal choice. The Marlin is longer too, but I can put rounds out of my Henry where I want offhand at 50 yards easy. I'd go with the better deal. FWIW, Henry's can be had under $250, and looking at gunbroker 39a's are in the $500 range.

    However, in a SHTF scenario, I'd take a lever action or bolt action tube fed .22 over one that needed magazines.

    Thanks for the response.

    I checked out the prices for the Henry lever actions and it is certainly better than the Marlin 39A (it looks like the Henry Golden Boy is in the same price range as the 39A).

    I definitely prefer lever or tube to magazines in a .22 rifle. Ruger 10/22s are great rifles, but they are a pain in the a$$ to load.

    I have 2 of them. They go bang everytime and are pretty accurate as the video shows.

    EDIT: many times when Im out on the property, the Marlin is what I carry rather than a pistol. I just like it.

    Nice gun, nice shooting, but really nice to be able to shoot like that in your driveway...

    I just purchased a Savage Mark II BV. Can't wait to get a scope mounted and take it out for a little R&R
