For me the Henry works well. I carry a rifle every day on a four wheeler or a tractor while feeding or just checking the cows. It gets wet, dropped, and bumped around. My safe has a few old Winchesters, a nice marlin or two and some really pretty uberti clones in it that are mostly Saturday afternoon shootin guns. The gun rack by the back door holds three rifles, the steel Henry 41 mag, a 357 marlin and an ar. 223. I find myself grabbing the Henry most often probably because it's scoped, carries well in the hand, and is easy to load and unload with stiff fingers. I will admit the caliber is a favorite and prefer Keith style swc bullets which this gun handles well.
That's a beautiful collection there Shrapnel.
