I think this is a big factor, at least for me, and I'm probably not alone. Old vintage and collectable guns have gotten so stupid high in price that I cant even afford to look at them. You have to really be into that scene and have the capital to back up your wants if you wanna play. All I can do is look as I walk by and think, that is a nice gun. Wish I had been older or had money back when that stuff sold reasonably.So many old milsurp guns to see, and prices that were realistic, AND sellers that were more than willing to haggle. I think I bought 3 rifles that day, and did so without breaking the bank!.
