I remember my DAD buying a Ruger M77 270 and a scope for under $300 total at a local hardware store. Those were good days!

I remember when Henry Winkler and Michael Jackson were cool.

I grew up in socal I remember we had to get gas on certain days I want to say it went by the first letter in your last name? And blue chips we used to pay for gas, wish I remembered the whole thing lol I wana say you got the chips from buying food. This was early to mid 70's

Highschool, gas was still under a buck would use my lunch cash to feed my wheels. Spent a lot of time running the dirt roads and swinging from rope swings into the lake. Man had a lot of good times

Good read guys!!!

Old farts in here! Good golly I could only wish I'd seen the things you've seen.

I'm still in my prime, as it were, but I was brought up backwoods and I'm probably the youngest you'll meet that remembers a few things that were "modern" to y'all at one time, like party lines.

Gas was 67 cents per gallon the first time I remember paying attention, which was when I was around 14 or so. I paid 89 cents per gallon and was pissed off about it when I started driving.

Guns have always been a little pricey in my lifetime, but I used to pay 3-5 bucks or so for a 500 round brick of .22 ammo. It SEEMED cheaper to use the .22 than my pellet rifle, but I don't know for sure if it was. My .22 was a revelation, store model of the marlin 60. My weekly pittance for working our farm and helping our neighbor with his would get me some ammo, a coke, and big bag of M&Ms for the weekend, and I had change left over.

If they cost that much in the commissary on Camp Lejeune (they were $18 per at the time) I'd have cancer for sure now.

How did I avoid lung cancer, and end up with skin cancers?

In 1960 I worked for one dollar an hour. Bought my eddy stone enfield M1917 for $30. Almost whole week's wages.
