Congrats on the gun and I hope you are cancer free. Finished up chemo about this time last year and, as of earlier this month, the CT scan still shows all clear so from one to another, keep up the fight.
I love lever guns but only have one Henry rifle (my other two levers are pre-safety Marlins - well, a Marlin and a Glenfield, which of course is actually a Marlin.) My Henry is just a basic .22LR model but it just might be a toss up between it and my Rossi .22WMR pump as to which of all my rifles I am most accurate with using open sights (as well as which of all my rifles is the most fun to shoot.) I am sure you will love it and having your name on it is super cool. Congrats, again!
