    In 1990, I bought a New England Firearms .410 which is about the same as a H & R single shot for $69.95.
    My first pistol was a sterling 380 for $49.99 in 2000. There was an old farmer down the road from my parents that sold guns out of a mini barn. I told him I wanted it so later that night he came down to my parents and my dad filled out the paperwork. I also bought a Taurus 357 model 66 with a 4” barrel the day I turned 21(2003) for $200 new. We bought a lot from him. My dad bought a few sks’s for $59.99 and a AK for $79.99. He had a heart attack in 2005 and closed his shop. I miss those days.

    Also before my time but cool to see.

    I have my dads old black and white Nylon 66, I believe he bought it at Sears. I have all the original paperwork and receipt for it from 1970 if I remember correctly.

    You could definitely make out well with about 10 or 20 of those Remington Nylons. They go for pretty good money now. I do remember that back then they didn't have a great reputation though.
    I have one. Mohawk Brown and manufactured 1963 before they started putting serial numbers on them. Still a super fun gun to shoot.

    I'd always wanted one and finally found one last year at a gun show for a price I was willing to pay (<$300). There were several at the show but they were mostly north of $400. When I saw the one I got, I didn't even bother haggling.

    I have 2 of the ithaca model 37’s in my safe to this day… still in great condition after all of the abuse ducks and geese can muster over time.. Hopefully the are worth more than the $110 I paid for them back then… the good ole days for sure…

    In 1984 I bought a H&R .22 revolver for $40 in the parking lot of the Clinton Power Station nuke plant. Damn was their gun laws back then? I still have it and it shoots pretty sweet. :rockwoot:
