I just hate the fact that Henry doesn't put a loading gate on even their real rifles... I understand not using one for the rimfire, but for real cartridges? Get rid of the stupid ass plunger.

Still awesome when you win it LOL!

Do any of the lever action 22s use a loading gate?

I've got a Henry 22 that has probably killed more rabbits, ground squirrels and other pests than any other gun I own.

I hate the plunger, and I hate the lack of a positive lock on it. Other than that, it's just about one of my favorite guns, despite not being taciticaloperatorninjaspecialforcestierone approved.

+1 If it can evacuate the brain from the skull with one shot
+1 If ammo can easily be found within 5 miles
+1 if the weapon can handle well in tight corners
+1 if the weapon is easy to reload while jogging
+1 if the weapon has a quiet report and low muzzle flash

-2 If it can not evacuate the brain from the skull with one shot
-1 for every ten miles you would have to goto to replenish ammo
-1 if the weapon is large and cumbersome
-1 if the weapon is complicated to reload
-1 if the weapon has a loud report and bright muzzle flash
-1 if the weapon has limited ammo capacity and/or no auto/pump/lever reload

+3 = good zombie gun
+2 = ok zombie gun
+1 = not the best zombie gun
0 or lower = At least you have a gun

The big boy is accurate and fun. It is not tough enough to take the abuse of cowboy action week after week, but for are excellent unless you want to beat on it like a rented mule.

We can deer hunt with them here in Indiana, so I might do that with it. As well as taking out a few coyotes on my uncles place from time to time, but other than that, I'll be killing paper with it.
