In celebration of 100 years of Boy Scouting, the Henry Repeating Arms Company has built the Henry Golden Boy “Boy Scouts of America Centennial Edition” Rifle.
This special rifle features the Scout Oath, Scout Law, scrollwork and traditional Boy Scouts of America logo embellishing the receiver, as well as a 100 Years of Scouting logo and Centennial Edition gold filled etchings in the buttstock and forearm.
No one knows how many boys first learned to shoot on the rifle range at a Boy Scout camp, but that first experience could have been with a Henry Rifle.
It was the tiny American flag that caught my eye, in a Henry Repeating Arms advertisement on the inside back cover of the October edition of Texas Co-op Power magazine (the Pedernales Electric Cooperative Edition).
As you might expect, that little flag was irresistible to me, and I had to take closer look. Let me encourage you to take a closer look too. The story of the Henry Repeating Arms Company is American history. There is a great video on the Henry company website that shows how the rifles are made, and you can ask for a free color catalog. I have one, and it is a splendid publication. www.henry-guns.com
I’ve been hinting to Husband for a new sewing machine for Christmas, but there’s no reason I can’t have Golden Boy of my own. Right?
