As I sit on the porch, enjoying the fall weather, I can’t help but think about days gone by. Not just my own childhood, but days from centuries ago. There’s something about autumn that brings back memories of bygone eras.
I can picture myself as a young boy in upstate New York, sitting on the porch of our old country home. The leaves are falling gently from the trees overhead, and a cool breeze is blowing through the air. I’m listening to my father tell stories of his youth, when he roamed the countryside trapping and hunting.
I can also imagine myself as a cowboy out west, riding across the wide-open plains on horseback. The sun is shining and there’s a crispness in the air. I’m chasing after outlaws and dreaming of one day settling down with a beautiful woman.
These are all wonderful memories, but sadly they’re just that – memories. I’ll never be able to go back and experience them firsthand. That doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy thinking about them though. In fact, I’d say that reminiscing about days gone by is one of the most enjoyable pastimes there is.
I have never owned a Henry Golden Boy rifle, but I have been thinking about buying one. There is something about the design that just speaks to me. Henry rifles are known for their quality and craftsmanship, and the Golden Boy is no exception. It’s a beautiful gun, and it would be a perfect addition to my small collection. What do you think? Should I go ahead and buy one?
What would I do with it if I did buy one? I’m not sure. Probably just keep it stored away in a cabinet somewhere. But it would be nice to have, just in case I ever wanted to go out and do a little shooting. Henry Golden Boy rifles are built to last, and they’re certainly a piece of history.
Do you have any Henry rifles in your collection? If so, which ones? I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment in the contact us section. Thanks for reading!
