On Monday, November 14th 1,000 proud shooters from 16 states stood side-by-side in a line spanning a mile and a half long and simultaneously fired two shots from a commemorative Henry Golden Boy Silver 1,000 Man Edition .22 caliber rifle.
This weekend Henry Repeating Arms is premiering a half-hour long show on national television and across the internet to let everyone see how that historic, record-breaking day took place.
The full show can be seen here: https://www.henryusa.com/1000-man-shoot-documentary/
High-profile YouTube personalities, thousands of Henry fans and 2nd Amendment supporters, an explosive demonstration from USA Chemical Supply, and the sound of 1,000 rounds of .22 LR echoing off the backdrop of desert hills are just a few things that make this new show worth watching and sharing.

Only people from 16 of the 50 states? What was up with that? No doubt that with a little effort, all 50 states + all territories could have had a participant. Still a shame with the Guinness book BS not recognizing it though.
I actually agree with Guinness’ reasoning behind not keeping that record. They avoid stuff that could lead to a dangerous escalation. The 1,000 shoot took a lot of coordination. If 2,000 drunk idiots get together because they want to break that record with ARs, chances are that something is going to go very wrong based solely on the law of large numbers.
Because nothing could possibly go wrong in the attempt to break any of their other goofy records?
Never mind all the broken noses and ruptured testicles from a ‘World’s Largest Dodgeball’ attempt, or all of the herniated disks and broken wrists from a ‘World’s Largest Game of Twister’ fiasco.
That being said, I’m sure the *real* record for simultaneous gunfire belongs to the battles of Kursk, Verdun or the Somme.
Demolition Ranch, who is a doctor(ish), had a segment on this. He was one of the bloggers there. It looked like fun.

This doesn’t seem very interesting to me. One of those “feelz” type events.
Why is it that when I saw the phrase “thousand man shoot,” I thought of a weekend in Chicago?
Where did the get all the .22 ammo ??
Winchester. But they only needed 4 bricks. 1000 shooters, 2 rounds apiece.
