Now ammo costs that much.
I'll take 10 of each please, pm me
I paid $85 plus a couple bucks in sales tax for my Woodsman Match Target in the early '50s. That was alot of money back then for a .22
Same cost. Notice the prices are nominated in Dollars. Today we use credit and nicely printed inflated toilet paper.
Is that ad from Buds? I heard they had good prices, but dayuuum!!!
In all seriousness, that was probably a working mans weeks pay back then.
Good guns still cost a good weeks pay now, for the most part. So its mostly equal, i think?
That was more than a weeks pay for my Dad, back then, He was a Union steelworker, and made "good money"
I always find those ads to be so interesting and amazing how nobody blinked an eye. Buying guns at the local hardware store was just something people did (my family didn't but others did) and I remember seeing the displays and not thinking twice about it. Now a days even sports store rarely have guns much less hand guns.
Sad state of affairs IMHO.
My recollection from another GT'er is that the NRA sold milsurped 1911s and Garands for awhile in the 60s for $5-$40, IIRC.
Those were the days.
