The Wildey didn't want to feed the buck and a half per bang bullets (.45 Win Mag). But your maw and sister liked the Barrett.

Those wildey's are gas operated and I've read it takes some adjusting to get them to feed/operate right.....I see a big smile om maw's face in that photo....knowing her, the bullet went right where she wanted to go.

Anyone have any experience with one of these? Looks cool and fun to carry. Even supposed to float!!

I have one. Mine actually works. I understand this is rarre in some older versions. (Charter, armalite)
Be warned, sometimes after market parts for older models will not fit the henry. On the other hand, it doesn't matter, because the henry parts work quite well.
The stock is oddly wide at the rear. It feels strange on your shoulder. Some sacrifices were made to fit the in the entire gun into the stock for storage. Also, the trigger is designed for reliability it is not a target type trigger.

I don't know about floating. Sometimes I get tempted to test it out but then I realize it is a stupid idea. I would imagine that a brief falls into water would not hurt the gun. I would not expect it to be dry inside after a long soak.
