I kick myself for not buying the brand new Maremont M-60 machinegun in 1983

For $3000

That would be worth about $20,000 now after shooting the heck out of it for 28 years.

I remember going out and collecting at least 13 soda bottles (2 cents each deposit), so I could go to Western Auto to buy a .25 cent box of .22's. Grandpa got me a new .22 for my 12th birthday. I still have a few boxes of 12 ga. paper shells I bought. I wonder if they will still fire?

Thanks. But my wants far exceed my finances. I want an LCR, a Colt Detective Special, a Security Six, an SKS.........you get the idea. I just bought a Mark II and I have no extra money for guns right now.

My next project is some repairs and maintenance on my car. Do I know how to have fun or what?
