Those Were The Days...

...when a decent annual income was about $12,000, give or take a couple of grand, but with prices like these who needed much more than that.


Now really, could you ever get an Enfield for $9.95!!! I remember them at about $79.99 apiece (I went back to the gun store with cash for two or three of them the day after I saw that price but by then the price was $119.99 or so! I literally was a day late and many dollars short.)

All the best,

That looks like it's from the '50's.

Either the 50s or maybe the 60s before the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 that was a major coup for the lefties in their quest to take away all guns. After hat passed, the prices of guns skyrocketed. Funny though, the streets are no safer today, even much more dangerous in places like Chicago.
