    I love/hate you guys. A few weeks ago, I bought a .22 Henry carbine and took it to the range. It was so much fun that a few days later, I ordered a .357 carbine. Took it out last night and now I want a .44 carbine.

    Why don’t you give us a range report on those shooters? I’d like to know how that 357 shoots.

    Real nice. But you have to pick up the pace a little. You need 30/30 and 45/70.

    I have had both on the range. My grouping were abysmal at 20 yards. On the paper, but not what anyone could call a group. I have spent so much time teaching safety and running the range that I don't get to shoot as much as I need to. I'm changing that now. I also can't warm up to the buckhorn sights, so Skinner peep sights might be in order.

    Glockman, I'll let you know about the recoil on that .357 if I actually feel it! It is very soft shooting rifle.

    Im not concerned with recoil, I’m interested in how it groups with different loads, at various distance like 25-75 yards or a little further.
    If you could take some pics of your groups that would be great!

    Henry really, really needs to make some lever guns with side loading gates. Start with the 357 Mag, please...

    Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.

    I think that is the single thing that has held back my purchase on a center fire Henry...I have a Henry 22 and have no issue with it in that caliber.

    But then again, it wouldn’t be a Henry if they did I suppose.

    We're Cimarron dealers. I get a lot through the shop that I just can't say no to. I have an 1872 Open Top Army in 44 special in one of the safes, a 1873 44 mag on order, a 1883 Burgess 45 Colt on order, and an 1858 New Army 45 Colt on order. Just me personally.

    We'll see which ones I actually sell.

    I bought the yellowboy up there with the intent on selling it. But they only imported 15 of them and it's going to be a couple of years before they switch back to 44 special production again. So...into one of the safes it went.
