My only complaint with RUger shotguns is that I can't afford them! I would love a Gold Label.

It's all relative. The $0.25 for 2 boxes of 22 shorts in those days was probably harder to come by than whatever the cost is today. What it all boils down to is what percentage of your disposable income is the cost of something now vs. 10, 20, or 50 or so years ago.

I'd bet that we get more bang for our buck now than we did back then.

Boy...isn't that the truth KP97DC. If our country went through another economic depression like in the 30's....blood would run in the streets days before it even became official.
In our Dads and Grandads day, government wasn't as intrusive into their lives like it is ours today. It creeps up on you much like trying to boil a frog. That is if you throw a frog into hot boiling water it will jump out, but if you throw it into room temperature water and turn the temp up 1 degree at a time he'll adjust and let himself be cooked to death.

That's what's been happening to us in our country since our Grandfather's day due in large part to people getting too comfortable and not wanting to give it up to remain independent....our generation and afterwards have sold their souls for a few pieces of silver and the day is coming when we're gonna have to pay the price.
