Henry Rifles Attempting Record With The 1000 Man Shoot!

I received a press release today from Henry Repeating Arms and it wasn’t the normal new product announcement! On November 14th Henry will line up 1000 shooters each equipped with a Henry Golden Boy Silver .22 and fire away. Each entrant will get to keep the rifle and custom case when they signup at the Patriot level.

Collection All Items

What Henry plans is to have all 1000 shooters on the line and firing at the same time which will break the record for the most shooters firing at the same time. Each rifle used will be custom engraved with the “1000 Man Shoot”. This event should be something to see and hear!


Less than one week after the 2016 Presidential election Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, and the National Rifle Association will team up to waste no time in raising funds to continue their efforts to uphold the 2nd Amendment.

Firearms history will be made when 1,000 freedom-loving Americans join together to set a World Record by simultaneously firing 1,000 Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy Silver rifles at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, Arizona on Monday, November 14th.

Henry Repeating Arms donated 1,000 custom engraved Henry Golden Boy Silver rifles and accessories that are embellished with The Henry 1000 Man shoot logo. Proceeds from the donation are expected to raise over $1,000,000 to benefit the National Rifle Association.

Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms conceived the event, explaining, “It’s no coincidence this event happens just a week after the Presidential Election. Whether we get a President that supports the Second Amendment, or one that does not, we should never be asleep at the wheel and must continue to fight for our freedoms. This event is all about showing a sense of patriotism, community, and camaraderie. Plus, we can all come together and have some fun.”

Participants who register for the $650 Patriot Package will get a spot on the firing line and a certificate of participation. They’ll also get to keep the Henry 1000 Man rifle they shoot, as well as a custom gun case, cap and T-shirt.

For more information or to register for the event, visit 1000manshoot.nra.org, or email 1000manshoot@nrahq.org with questions.

    The website says the participant will have the opportunity to purchase one of the rifles, not that they get to keep it.

      Surely, if they buy it, they get to keep it?

    • BillC

      You don’t read well do you? The rifle you keep is part of the $650 Patriot Package. It’s in where the words are up top, in the website, and in the website’s FAQ.

        Actually I read quite well. I just never went to the actual registration page.

        On the main page, above the Register Now button that is above the “About the Gun” section, it says “Besides taking part in the event on November 14, 2016, you will also have the opportunity to purchase one of these Exclusive Henry Golden Boy Silver Edition specially engraved firearms that will only be used on this day”. That led me to believe there was another charge other than the $650 Patriot Package for the rifle.

        But hey, I’ve been wrong before, and I’ll most likely be wrong again at some point.

    I look forward to hearing about this again. In 4 days. Via email. At 3:27 am. On a phone I can’t turn off.

    So… Can I bring my 39a?

  • Swarf

    No gurlz allo’d?

    I was going to sign up for this with my son and my father. Would’ve been great to have 3 generations of shooters lined up all with the same lever gun.

    However, these doofuses are holding this on a Monday in the middle of the day. I can’t exactly get the day off from work AND take my kid out of school to shoot a few rounds of .22.

    I think this could be more appropriately named the “1000 Retired Man Shoot”.
