Default Even allowing for inflation, those are great prices

Anyway you look at those prices, they're a bargain.

According to the inflation calculator at http://www.westegg.com/inflation/ that $66 M-1 in 1969 is the equivalent to $383.43 in 2008. Not to mention that rifle would probably be a premium grade by today's standards.

Some of us remember it, and we do cry.

This is what we are talking about when folks mention how it was in the old days, the different world we grew up in.

You mean like the Johnson rifle and bayonet I *could* have bought for $150 at the Great Western in '84 but didn't because it looked pregnant?

In 2048, theyre going to wish it was 2009 more than we wish its 1968.

those really are cheap prices. just goes to show how bad inflation really is. just think when our great grand kids are starting to buy weapons.SON i can remember when that AR15 was only $1000.

lol i can remember sks's for $50

Default Surplus Guns

I'm dating myself here but, yep, I remember it real well. I was 18 in 1968 and can remember my Dad freaking about the 68 gun control act. I also remember all the smoke the first time he shot his garand (didn't clean all the cosmoline out of it), also the carcano, mauser 98, colt 1911, etc, etc....all purchased from the inner pages of the American Rifle magazine. Thos old prices were low cause we only made $2.81 an hour and were raising our families on that wage. Let's see...uh, .19 cents a gallon for gas. $20.00 would fill a grocery cart to overflowing at Safeway. My first car (54 Plymouth) was $80.00. Yep, things were different back then...Gary D.

I was just a kid back in the '60s. What hurts me is looking back at the '80s. New factory H&K rifles were sitting all over dealers shelves for $600. FALs for $450. AKs for $60-80. SKSes for $50, etc. I had a lot of money to buy them with, but chose to buy other things instead. After all, firearms ownership is an inalienable American right. Those same firearms will ALWAYS be on the dealers shelves, right? Dammit.
