    $44. My first security six was $89, my wage at the time was $5.25 hr. What was the cost of your first new gun?

    The first gun I bought myself was a 10/22 and I want to say it was just over $100? It would have been about 1987

    Well I think Jims member-er might be broke. When it was released the 10/22 had a price of like $56 in 1964. $12 seems like a pretty steep discount.

    The other thing is that $56 was big money comparatively, that's over $400 in today's money.

    You sure it wasn't $54 Jim?

    My first 1022 was $56.50, and I painted my parents house to earn the money for it. Luckily, it was a small house...

    I want to say it was $450 for a Beretta 92fs from Andersons sporting goods. Then it was around $700 for a HK usp 40.
    This was back in 93 or 94, before the 94 ban though as they both had the standard mags.

    High Standard Longhorn Double Nine .22 western styled revolver. $77 brand new. I will NOT divulge the year due to fear of young whippersnappers giving me shat about my age.
