I remember as a kid, seeing ads for surplus Colt 1911s for $89.95, postpaid, delivered to your mailbox. This was, of course, before 1968 and GCA68. The first shotgun I ever bought, at age 12, I bought across the counter of a local club, having paid cash in the amount of $84.00. It was a Winchester 1200 pump and I shot that shotgun for many years.

There was a day when we could buy firearms by mail and 12 year olds could buy shotguns across the counter for cash fairly earned.
