The Henry Golden Boy Silver 1000 Man Shoot rifle is a limited edition firearm! On November 14, 2016, NRA and Henry Repeating Arms teamed up to set a record and raise funds to continue efforts in protecting the 2nd Amendment. Freedom loving Americans joined together to set a world record by simultaneously firing 1,000 Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy Silver rifles at Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ. Henry Repeating Arms generously donated the custom engraved rifles to the NRA and they in turn paid it forward by donating one rifle to every NRA State Association.
The Henry Golden Boy Silver rifle in .22LR is configured with octagon barrels, American walnut stocks, and fully adjustable Marbles semi-buckhorn sights. This beauty features a mirror-bright nickeled receiver cover, matching barrel band and buttplate, and a gleam that'll get you noticed proudly anywhere you shoot. The Henry Golden Boy Silver for the 1,000 Man Shoot comes custom with a 1,000 Man Shoot commemorative logo (watch the video below for a great shot of the rifle and logo) and Allen case, making it one of a kind. Or one-in-a-thousand.

Well, as can be expected, the gun ban lobby went apoplectic, and three of them, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, and GiffordsPAC, filed suite in a federal court in Texas. From Reason.com's coverage of the story:
Panicked, a trio of gun-control interests (Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, and GiffordsPAC) tried to muscle in on the lawsuit at the very last minute and prevent the settlement from going into effect. Friday, after a hearing before Judge Robert Pitman in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, their attempt failed, the settlement went into effect, the lawsuit is over, and the files are being freely distributed.
...The Brady Campaign and their partners, Wilson thinks, were just hoping to stall resolution of the settlement and "kill us with paperwork and keep us in court" for possibly years longer. "The Judge saw through everything, is the long and short of it" Wilson says. The executive branch, Wilson says, "gets to decide on national security prerogatives" and in a sense Wilson says his side was being forced to defend the arguments of his ostensible legal opponents in the federal government, "which is that the courts can't review" the decision to let the files be distributed.This likely isn't the end of Wilson's legal battles as Reason reports the New Jersey AG sent a letter to him threatening a lawsuit and CBS reports that last night Defense Distributed agreed to block Pennsylvania users after an emergency hearing Sunday night in federal court in Philadelphia.
