I stopped by a gunstore today, (shocking right?). On the rack was a used 1860 henry. I asked the kid behind the counter to show me the 1860 Henry. He pulled down a big boy with a brass receiver. Honest mistake I’ll give him that one. I corrected Ana said “no the other Henry.” “Oh sir this isn’t a Henry it’s a ‘ooo-burr-tie’” thanks kid. My internal monologue would have made Tennmike proud. 
Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I can only speak for myself but I'm happy they don't know all.
    I'd have far fewer guns if they did.

    I bought my Savage 1899 takedown in .38-55 for $400, I couldn't get out the store fast enough!! Clerk said if they can't get the ammo at Walmart, guns won't sell!!  B)

    Same line I got at Gander Mountain when I got my take-down 99 in .300 Savage.  BTW they even had ammo for it right there on a shelf  :D
