    Since I have, in the past, bought a gun just to shoot ammo someone game me, I've got nothing to add.

    Got you beat. I told my wife to pick up some 22 mag ammo and she came back with 17 Win super mag ammo. When I told her the problem, she said walmart doesn't return or exchange ammo so she guessed that meant I'd need to buy a new gun. I LOVE my wife (except for the Henry debacle).

She hasn't even held this wonderful piece of american made machinery so I don't think she has a claim to it at all. I also informed her that if that's how it's gonna be, I'll get another Henry in 45-70 and made some disparaging comment like "I'd like to see you shoot that one with your degenerative disc disease" or something to that effect. We're not talking about lever guns right now.

    If you wife insisted you buy a Henry, she really has good taste.

    Get revenge!

    Get a Uberti Henry.

    The only thing the Henry of today have in common with the historical Company is the name. The Ubertis are at least using the same action. And the real Henry design is know for better accuracy since the mag tube is part of the barrel, therefore stiffening it and acting as a heat sink.

    You just need to figure out the 'Henry Hop' and remember to ANGLE the gun when loading and never drop rounds in from the vertical. Dropping from the vertical worked with the rimfire originals but I don't suggest it for the centerfire repros.

    And you are supposed to b "Peacemakr"?. . . . Boo. Hiss!
    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
