1860 Henry Modification A leather lace-on “heat shield” wrap around the barrel and magazine tube of the 1860 Henry rifle has been approved by the Range Operations Committee. The proposed modification is a reasonable solution to a well-known safety concern regarding the use of the 1860 Henry rifle in SASS competition. As many shooters choosing to use that model also shoot in Black Powder categories, the lack of a forearm can be problematic as the barrel heats up. That can lead to possible safety issues in maintaining control of the firearm while shooting. Advising the use of a glove while shooting one discounts the fact that a glove can be a hindrance when shooting revolvers.
When I first started cas in ‘09, I just went out and bought stuff. In 2011 I got a pair of Walkers. Over the years of on and off shooting I struggled with holsters that were either too big or to small for the guns I like to play with. I have all the revolvers I want (I think) and finally ordered my dream leather the end of last summer. It showed up this week. Looks like I’m short one gun. When you shoot Josey Wales every chance you get, one needs options.
