    I was on the want-list at my local gun shop for an AR-7, and they called me on Saturday to tell me a Henry US Survival Rifle came in.

    I'm going to pick it up today.

    That was the first gun I ever owned (mine was a Charter Arms AR-7, but this is the same rifle). :bowdown:

    Be cooler if you had a suppressed one in 25ACP with a infrared scope a la James Bond "From Russia With Love".

    Yep, and when it's stowed, it's waterproof and floats. :bowdown:

    I splurged. I picked it up along with the 10/22 from the other day. :o $400 for both. Plus a few magazines for the 10/22.

    I'd do it now, but I don't think my company would like it if I brought in a couple rifles to my desk. :noes:

    My boss (also my father) is a gun enthusiast as well. Back at our old place we had some of the neighbors come over and check out a rifle he had just bought.

    I work for Northrop-Grumman. We build aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines, and guided missiles, but I'll be fired if I bring in a weapon. :mamoru:
