  1. Decisions decisions

    Rimfire Rifles
    I'm trying to decide between two Henry 22WMR rifles. The standard Henry Lever Action blued rifle or the Henry Golden Boy ... both in 22WMR. I've already got several 22LR so that's not a choice I'm considering. I've got lot's of 22mag ammo in stock. I really like the aesthetics of both rifles...
