    Missed it by that much!

    I'm in mourning this morning! Yesterday after church I was surfing my local armslist and a gentleman had just posted a brand new, unfired Henry rifle in .22lr for $300. I was so elated that I emailed him immediately. Unfortunately, some lucky devil beat me to punch! Don't you just hate it when something like that happens? Am I the only one with such luck?

    Yeah, you're the only one.


    I hate it when that happens. Missed out on a couple of similar deals, over the years. I'm sure that dozens go by us every day that we're not even aware of. Infuriating, I suppose. But nothing to be done about it. What gets me are some of the M1 Carbine deals I missed during the '90s, among others.

    I must have been the second person interested by mere minutes!!! My quest is for a Henry in .22lr and one in .38/.357

    I think he happily shares the scotch. If you want to torture him, leave him with only Alexa to talk to.

    You are cold-hearted, DogWalksWithMe!! I wasn't going to be that mean to him.

    Are you looking at some particular model or variant?

    Academy sells the base model for $289. I think I saw one at Wally World for the same price.

    That would bum me out as well ..... that's a good price on a Henry. Wonder why it was that low?
    As for the Scotch .... all yours Hammer. When I come to NY we're drinking Rum or Bourbon.

    Good price but there isn't an Academy store near West Palm Beach and I much prefer a semi-auto.
