Can you imagine how huge your jacket would have to be to fit all that hardware under there?

Walk me through first .22 purchase. Bolt action, left handed, wood and steel. Used for shooting inanimate things and possibly killing coyotes.

Other considerations: .17HMR instead of .22 for extra punch and Henry lever action over bolt for extras awesome.

Thanks.

I'd feel a lot better about taking on a coyote with some kind of high velocity varmint round. Maybe a 22-250, 220 Swift, something like that. If you are talking about a .22LR, I wouldn't try Coyotes with it.

Yeah, a 22LR won't do much better than rabbits, squirrels, etc.

If he's a collector, he could also get them in electroless nickel and stainless. He could add the rare 3-inch variant. He could get limited-edition versions like the "Python Hunter," but I doubt even all of these would bring you anywhere close to 60. Maybe he's also into matched pairs. A matched pair of 2 1/2-inch Pythons in a double shoulder rig would be a cool defensive carry outfit. At least I think so.

I talked to him last night. he wouldnt say exactly how many, but said "well, theres more than 60 laying around between me AND dad"

Ive sold him probably half a dozen nighthawks in the past year. He's probably spent more on firearms in the last year than ive made at my full time job.

Meh, in my experience, it is better than the alternative.

Coyotes are an occasional target. The .17 should handle them.

Anyone have actual experience with Henry?

for that price range, they make the smoothest action and use the nicest furniture. If you dont really care about that stuff, save the extra money and buy a 336

You think so? I thought the Henry action was a lot stiffer compared to the Rossis I've handled. I might have just gotten ahold of a bad one though.

really? theyre a solid action to me. very smooth. Rossis are a pretty nice gun for the money. But IMHO its like comparing a rossi revolver to a smith revolver.

Selling firearms is your business or a side thing?
