    Thumbs up My daughter's first grouse

    This is my then 8 year old daughter with her first grouse. Made a great head shot with her own Henry Mini-bolt .22. She is going to be a dead eye!

    Default It was last fall

    9-11-05, I was getting ready to leave for the weekend on a moose trip when I saw this nice grouse in the yard. She shot the first one while it was still on the ground then two others flew into trees nearby and I got them. Made a nice little dinner!

    Nothing like a nice fresh meal. Even better cooked on the tailgate way out somewhere.

    Default Thats awesome

    I bought my son the same little .22 for his 6th birthday and he is deadly with that Litlle Henry. Great feeling aint it. This year he's 8 and shooting a 270 win for black bear and I cant wait to see how it goes down.

    Question Mini 22

    Hello, I have a 10 yr old son. I think he would like the Henry .22 mini-bolt, but I have never heard of it. :-) Where can I find these and how much should they run???\
    Thanks

    Default Henry Minibolt

    For kids????? I bought one to stick in my backpack.....fits nicely in my pack and is a handy & accurate small game getter......mine weighs 2lbs.13oz.

    Nice little rifle, even for the big kids.

    Default Mini-bolt

    I got mine through a friend with a FFL. Any decent gun shop should be able to find one for you. I got this one just over wholesale and it was around $170 I think. It's a great little rifle, single shot bolt, stainless/synthetic with neat little fiber optic open sights. Trigger needs a little work though (pretty heavy). It is very similar to the chipmunk, but I like the stainless/synthetic better for about the same price.

    Smile Yep, 6x6

    I bought it new in 2004. There is nothing like them unless you get into the Argo type vehicles. There is a little more maintenance since it has drive chains for the rear, but if you keep up on them they aren't any problem. It is very stable and what I like is the load capacity. The factory rates the rear box for 800#. It's not a land speed record breaker but will do 45 without much problem. If you get one, be sure to get the engine braking system. It is a lifesaver! Alaska Power Sports in Anchorage gave my brother in law and I a killer deal on them (we bought two). We got the machine with a 2,500# warn winch, the engine brake system (normally a $500 add on), and hot grips for $7,348 each. I have no complaints whatsoever.

    Default Kid guns!

    I managed to pick up a little stevens model 73 single shot for myself! Those little rifles are just to much fun! I bought Savage/Stevens "Favorites" (the current version) for a friends son's when they got old enough. Very accurate and it's a ton of fun to take them out and spend the afternoon popping balloons!

    Really nice picture. I've got a three year old son and can't wait to show him how to shoot semi straight, hope your daughter keeps shooting.
