    One of the unusual handguns in my brother's collection that I inherited was a .22 Mendoza K-62. Doing some research I discovered this was a cheap single shot that sold in the early 1960's for about $25. It's really a cheaply made gun. In my Internet research I stumbled across a collectable auction website and that gun sold for $425. WOW, someone must have really wanted that gun.

    A gazillion jokes about the "Mendoza Line" beg to spring forth.

    Perhaps when this "shelter in place" and "social distancing" is over I'll give that gun a good inspection and if it seems safe take it to the range and fire it.

    That way the hospital line will be smaller?

    Uff da. That is one seriously unattractive shooter.
    I'll give you $2.37 for it, you pay shipping.
