    Yeah, I keep an image of a magazine ad selling the Mossberg 146B .22lr that I inherited from my dad. A priceless rifle! Makes a great screen saver!

    $30 was about 1% of the average wage in 1954. ($3,155). I can still buy a decent 1911 for 1% of my
    current yearly income.:) Notice that they came with 2 CLIPS?

    The prices that have gone truly whacky are on full auto. Wow. A couple hundred pre 68, now
    20,000+.

    Yep. Pre 86 you could form 1 your own FA gun for the price of a stamp. Or you could have purchased a new in box SWD M11-nine for $395 (plus the $200 tax stamp). Fast forward to the present. If you can find one now NIB, you could expect to see a price of $5000, or more.

    "A finer gun then you actually need". No truer words spoken.
