This chap dressed up for the occasion, including spurs, at the Trafalgar Meeting at Bisley, shooting a 44/40 and a 45/70 in the 200 yard standing matches.

Interesting. Does that Henry require a special gun slot in a gun owners license in the UK because it shoots a cartridge? ....and a repeater?

The Henry and the Sharps come under the same category of regulation. Any manually operated rifle is legal, except for pump actions which, along with semi auto centre fire rifles, are prohibited for us law abiding citizens to own. Semi auto .22 rimfires are OK to own.
