    I knew others would jump in with video. Sling is a tool . There are many ways to use one depending on your goal. Watch the video and when you are ready try it. Once you have figured it out then go out and place a few rounds down range.

I try to attend one of these classes every year as a refresher and to maintain my skills.
    That seems to be a local/Southern organization. I'm going to ask my husband if he knows how this works.

    I believe you are in Oregon or Washington State. Appleseed has training events in both states. They are all over the country.

    Got it, thanks. I see it now. I needed to look in a different spot. And some of the events are quite near me.

    We experimented with QUIET 22 rounds, from the 1050 fps down to about the 450 Feet Per Second.

    Once you get below 1050, automatics jam about every other round. Not so with the 610 and 490 fps range rounds.

    If considering the rifle, I suggest you buy a box of the 450 rage and test drive it through a regular 22 for the sound difference experience.

    P. S. The 610 is a LR round, the 490 fps is a short round.
    Didnt run any exhaustive tests other than if held mostly level my old Marlins would chamber anything you could buy and deliver it down range with pinpoint accuracy..and quiet as mouse. Definitely front heavy which helps me hit things..I had 10 22. Thats like shooting a pistol.lol. Total back heavy..short sight radius plus crappy sights.I couldnt hit the broad side of a barn with that thing. Or things Ive had two over the years..the last one I traded to by Brother for a SS Marling with a Scope. I took him preety good huh?

    I have one, it’s the blue steel carbine version with the large D loop, I love that rifle. No sling on it so I will leave that alone. Fantastic quality, don’t even think twice about getting one. You won’t regret it.

    I have one (H001) and I love it. It shoots .22 short, long and long rifle. Very accurate and the action is smooth as butter.

    Well built rifle, have never had to work on one.

    The price seems high to me, but I am inherently cheap.

    MY 22 RF rifles consist of a Marlin 39A, a Ruger 10-22 and a AR-7.

    Buy a Henry and pass it on for generations to come. US made and the pretty much make it all in the plant. cost a bit more but well wort it. There are some firearms when you put them on the bench ,that is the only statement you need to make.
    Henry is one of them.

    Learnt to wrap the arm up in the sling at the tender age of about 11 at the shootin range at the summer boy scout camp. Crusty old military guy taught us the ropes. They had some kinda huge clunky .22 Single shots with peep sites..and let us shoot clay piegons with .22 rat shot out of huge and clunky single shot bolt action smoothbore .22s designed to only shoot rat shot. It was pretty kinky.
