Ruger Standard pistol purchased new from Western Auto around 1968 for somewhere between $45-70. Great shooter. Reliable and accurate but magazine release a poor choice. Never failed me. Don't remember ever taking it apart for full cleaning. Eventually supplanted by 36 and 44 percussion revolvers because they were inexpensive and I could make the black powder and cast the conical bullets from lead weights found by roadside.

J.C.Higgins bolt action 20GA. Shotgun, $5.00 down and $5.00 a week, mail order.

That was so long and so many firearms ago I don't remember what ever happened to it. :s0092:
