    Lever action guns are lots of fun.I also picked up a pump action 22 recently,that's fun too.I looked at 22 magnums also but I like to shoot them so much I couldn't afford to shoot it.I shoot both guns hundreds of rounds at a time.I'm glad you liked it.Maybe some day I might get one of them.I kinda like the idea of the extra kick with a magnum rifle.

    I don't like the extra kick in my wallet buying the mags.

    Good for you Beth ! I love lever guns, they just have a feel to them and it reminds me of my younger years. I always looked forward to when I could go to my uncles and shoot his 39A, that was and is a sweet lil'gun. Guess that's why I wanted to get my son a lever action, so he could enjoy it and so can I.;):)

    Cut back a little on eating out....
    and shopping at Lincolnwood.........
    you'll be fine along with your wallet !!
    .22WMR's are almost a necessity,
    rifle or pistol.....or both. [and fun, savvy,etc.] ;):cool:

    Took me two years to trade my Brother out
    of this 39D......[in 1980]
    shootin'-est .22 I've ever seen.
    Been through a flood/hurricane and
    a sad excuse for re-blueing/refinishing.....
    but still one helluva accurate shooter.
    A little shorter than the 39A.

    Leverguns - the cowboy version of the assault rifle.

    Very handy, very easy to carry in brush, good shooting, and such a classic look. How can you go wrong?

    I think my next one is going to be something .22, then I probably get one in a pistol caliber, and finally a 45-70.

    I don't. I going to put a set of Skinner Tactical peeps on my 30-30 instead. I don't like a lot of things to catch up on brush and branches, and a scope would certainly snag on anything it can.

    Me, personally,.....
    I think a scope on the lever gun
    detracts from the entire 'culture'
    and 'beauty' of the gun.
    I love scopes on bolt actions, semi-autos,.....etc.
    My sight at 70yrs isn't what it was 50yrs ago.....
    or 10......but I think a lever gun needs iron sights.
    My opinion, yep,.....and I don't need John Wayne
    'raising' from the grave to hunt me down and kick my ass....
    because I degraded a legendary tradition. :):)

    Nora....
    a Henry Golden Boy [.22lr or .22WMR]
    and a Ruger Single-Six Convertible [both cylinders]
    Is....in my opinion....the ultimate pair of .22's

    Then a .45colt Henry and a Ruger Vaquero .45......

    etc....etc.....etc......
