I wish I had discovered the Handi rifles sooner. I bought my first one, 45-70 , right before they quit selling them. I wish I’d bought more. I have a contender too and I’m really liking the single shot guns .

I caught the bug about 2 years ago. I'd like to think I would have restrained myself and just bought the things I currently have, but realistically I probably would have a much fuller safe and even less cash in the bank.

They had a good thing going for a while but I think when all of the sub $ 250 bolt action rifles came out they lost a big part of the low priced entry level sales.
I started buying them around 2000 and back then the extra barrel program was very popular. You could buy shotgun barrels for $ 40 and most rifle barrels were $ 80 fitted and you only paid shipping of $ 10 even if you bought 10 at one time.
They came out with a lot of non magnum cartridges and many different models and most stocks could be swapped and you could make what you wanted at a low price.

I lived in OH for most of my life and recently moved to MI and I still find a lot of them at gun stores and gun shows and pawn shops at prices that are a lot less than they fetch online.
