Hello: New to the forum. I have two Henry's mares legs one .22 and one 38/357. Both are a blast to take to the range! I just put a BSA .22 4x something on the 22. The 38 special/ 357 mag is a show stopper. They are not for everybody! I have let five others touch or try it! Three made cash offers after shooting of more than I paid on the spot! And one put on lay-a-way. One did not like it. Holsters and cases are a challenge but with reloading my own 38's and .357mag I'm looking forward to fun at the range! My wife prefers the Ruger 10/22 target rifle over the Henry's. I think it's because it has a scope. I'm looking for a recommendation for the .357 mag any suggestion?

I had a scope on my Henry 22 Mare's Leg. It takes the standard Weaver tip-off mounts. Do you want to scope the 357?

Yes I was looking to scope the 357 Henry, factory sights are great at close range but I'm looking for the 50 to 100 yard range.

How much kick does it have shootin' 357? I've only shot 38 in mine.

mare's leg .22 is a blast

I traded a beretta 22 neos with 100 boot for this little guy at a gun show the other day. It is fantastic! It shoots better than a pistol if you use the cheek piece properly. A reckless squirrel showed up when I was testing it out and I shot it out of the top of a 75+ foot oak tree... I'm not necessarily going to be taking it hunting over my 10/22 but, hey, I'm happy happy happy with it Jack!

A lot of people don't realize you do have enough stock for a good cheek weld. I put a peep sight on mine.

Yep.
I have a Rossi Ranch Hand .44 Mag. I have tried different ways to shoot it, but the steadiest is to hold it like a normal rifle. Just hold it up and use the same cheek weld. It's not as steady as a regular rifle, but steadier than a handgun, and closer to a rifle.
Surprised me. I honestly bought it as a novelty, but it might be useful after all.

I can get it to my shoulder, and it shoots well that way, but it's not exactly natural feeling. A curved grip and lever would help a lot there.

You can't put the stock on your shoulder? That's wild!
