I was thinking, we older guys might list the firearms we bought before 1980. I'll start out, my first was purchased in 1971, two years after I got out of the Army.

1971: Marlin 336C 30-30 lever action rifle, Marlin/Glenfield Model 60 .22LR semiauto rifle (both bought new)
1975: 1913 DWM P08 Luger 9mm semiauto pistol (used of course)
1976: Colt Series '70 Government Model .45ACP, S&W Model 19 .357 Magnum revolver, Ruger Mark I Target .22LR semiauto pistol (all bought new)
1977: 1948 Argentine Ballester Molina .45ACP semiauto pistol (used)
1978: Remington Wingmaster Model 870 12 gauge shotgun (used)
1979: Star Model PD .45ACP semiauto pistol (new)
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

Hey folks,

Just thought I'd drop a line and say I am still working on my book and still utilizing much of what I've learned from this community. I have even compiled a list of possible firearms that could show up in my book and am currently digging up more information about each gun.

I have also been doing research on the 1960s/70s political and military scenes. I have gained a lot of useful information from some people via PMs on this site and will not take this community for granted. Some of the information I have been given has worked perfectly for the book I am writing, even adding more authenticity to the tale.

Become steel or get cut.
