Our OOIDA Board of Directors meets twice a year here in Grain Valley. I serve on that board as the employee director. When I walked into our OOIDA Board Room in April and took my seat at the large oval table, I really wasn’t surprised to see one of our board members with a .22 rifle lying on the table in front of him.
It’s the OOIDA Board, after all. Nothing really surprises me.

At the spring board meeting, we had the chance to look at one and handle it. Lewie Pugh passed it over to Terry Button. And on to Gary Carr. And on it went. The Henry is a lever-action, breech-loading, tubular magazine rifle with a long service history in this country, especially in the settling of the Wild West.
