first 2 were a 1916 Spanish Short rifle and an M1 Garand. Bought both in the late 90s at a yard sale for $250. lady who owned the house said they were her husband's, and since he had passed away over the winter she just wanted them gone. Still have both, and the short rifle is one of my primary deer rifles. Would love to take the M1 out hunting, but we have been limited to 6 total in an autoloader (exception is pistols with a barrel length of 8 inches or less) in my state for as long as I have been hunting here.

M1 Carbine. My late father picked it up along with a 16ga Ithaca Model 37 for $125 many years ago. They're both in my safe now.

A M1 Carbine that my father got through the NRA for $20 when I was about 8 years old.

I owned three or four over the years, and can't believe the prices they are getting these days.
