The “Indiana Boy” rifle is a special tribute Henry Repeating Arms is working on for a remarkable young boy named Brayden.
Brayden was born prematurely at 3 pounds, 2 ounces with a serious condition leaving his intestines outside of his body. The surgery to remedy his condition led to numerous infections and now most of his organs need to be replaced.
Upon learning Brayden’s story, Henry Repeating Arms’ president Anthony Imperato immediately offered the family assistance.
Through its Guns for Great Causes branch, Henry created 33 special edition rifles to be auctioned off and sold across the country to generate funds to help Brayden’s family financially with his anti-rejection drugs that are required for a successful transplant operation of this severity.
Brayden has fought a tough fight since birth and continues to show bravery and strength through it all. Inspired by this, Imperato wanted to reflect Brayden’s bravery with the theme of the rifle and included a personal text that can be found on the buttstock.
Only 33 of these rifles will be made starting with serial number “BRAYDEN01” and going through “BRAYDEN33.” The first rifle is available for auction on Gunbroker.com. The remaining 32 rifles will be sold directly through Henry Repeating Arms for $750. All money will be donated to Brayden’s family to help with the costs associated with organ transplants.
To order please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a name, phone number, and home address. Payment can be made by credit card and the rifle will ship to a local Henry dealer. Henry Repeating Arms will recognize everyone who purchased one of these rifles as thanks for participating in this special fundraiser.
