    Fellow BOGs,

    I'm trying to post as many past prices, rules, etc. related to firearms. I'll start with a few. Feel free to add what you remember.

    Remember when:

    1. Before martial law, civilians have more modern weapons than the
    police?

    2. Reloads were at P2.00 each?:)

    3. There were so many WCC 5.56mm rounds that they only cost P0.50
    in loose packs, and P1.00 in boxes. Ammo box included if you
    decide to buy one.

    4. Permits to Carry was issued FREE OF CHARGE by the provincial
    commander. There was a specific warning at the back that said
    "this permit to carry is issued for free. Not to be sold."

    5. WW 231, Mulwex, and Bullseye were the most popular (and widely
    available) powders in the market?

    6. Hensley and Gibbs #68 was the most popular bullet head for a
    .45 round.

    7. Bo-Mars became so popular that you could hardly see one on
    display at Greenhills?

    8. During the .45 single stack era in IPSC, Wilson 8 round
    stainless magazines sold for P1,200.00?

    9. Bar-Sto barrels became very popular among IPSC shooters?

    10. The "old" Safariland holsters from the 80's revolutionized the
    speed holsters craze and technology?

    You're right! The Colt Gold Cup Series 70 was a very sought after 1911 during that time (and I think until now).

    Pre-Martial law, right?
    Dunno about gas, but jeepney fare was actually 10 centavos
    where I commuted. A small bottle of soda was 35 centavos,
    although by the time I checked out of the LSGH asylum, and
    gone Pisay, it had inflated to 85 sentimos up to a piso.

    As for firearms-related prices, I was exposed to the 'industry'
    fairly late, at the 1996 Gun Show at Harrison Plaza Manila.
    From an old flyer:

    Ammunition prices (1996):
    .45 ACP - 9.00 per pc.
    .38 Special - 9.00 per pc.
    .38 Super - 13.00 per pc.
    .38 S&W Short - 35.00 per pc.
    .380 ACP - 9.00 per pc.
    9 mm - 9.00 per pc.
    Ga 12 #00 Buck - 18.00 per pc.
    Ga. 16 - 50.00 per pc.
    Ga. 20 - 19.00 per pc.
    .32 ACP - 13.00 per pc.
    .32 Rev - 28.00 per pc.
    .25 ACP - 28.00 per pc.
    .22 LR Solid - 1.40 per pc.
    .22 LR HP - 1.50 per pc.
    .22 Magnum - 6.75 per pc.
    .22 Jet Mag - 60.00 per pc.

    We couldn't use vehicles with and "H" or Heavy classification on weekends.

    Pag may Toyota Corona ka, ok ka na.

    Bodega Bar, Calesa Bar, Star Gazer, Louie Y's were the places to be on weekends.

    Crispa T-Shirt was okay for casual wear.

    Ayala, Buendia, and EDSA looked empty on Sundays?

    The Love Bus was a very popular mode of transportation?

    Bang Bang and Faded Glory were the jeans of the 70's.

    Tapsilog became popular, that it competed with the goto stall at Greenhills?

    Rustan's, SM Makati and the Ayala Commercial Center/Quad were the places to go for shopping (we stayed at Gilarmi Apartelle during our vacation in Manila. Toyota import players were also billeted there). Later, the Tuscany competed with Gilarmi for building height. It was Greenhills, Cubao, Ali Mall, and Farmer's Market for folks living in the northern part of Metro Manila.

    The first authentic Shawarma I ever tasted was at the entrance of Rustan's Supermarket in Makati facing the Intercon. There were also stalls that sold waffle dogs and chicharon.

    The birth of Burger Machine as well as Tropical Hut. May P12.00 ka, busog na busog ka na.

    You had to go through the operator to call long distance!;f

    ...A toyota land cruiser costs 6,000 pesos

    ...Taxi flagdown rates were 20 cents and 10 cents for each succeeding kilometer

    ...Jack and Jill Chippy costs 15 centavos, while a bottle of coca-cola was 25 cents so having an allowance of one peso during grade school bought a lot of snacks during recess

    ...the dollar:peso exchange rate was 1:7

    ...private armies were commonplace and my Dad had one

    The original Sunkist tetrapak (a true tetrahedron, not today's bricks)
    78 rpm vinyl
