My first handgun was a Browning 9mm automatic with adjustable sites around 1973. If I remember correctly it was $109 with the extra $25 for the adjustable sites.
I'm going way back here so don't don't hold the price as granite... it's my best recollection of the price.
My Remington 241A was free from a hand-me-down. The serial number was less than 1200. If any gun collector out there has a Remington 241A with a serial number less than 1200 I'd really like to contact you. I mean I would seriously like to get my old rifle back. I know the exact number... Thanks!!!!
Monk…Thats neat Monk….My first handgun was a hand me down from my dad. Its a Radom 9mm from Poland and is from after the Germans took control of the factory. It has the Iron Eagles and what a few folks who have looked at it appear to be the SS insignia on it. I still have it. My dad got me a Stevens model Savage .410 Double Barrel Shotgun when I was 8 years old. I think it was one of the first to have internal firing pins. Still have that one also…..MUCH sentimental value….
Thank you GP... I'm somewhat saddened that I sold my Grandmother's 241A to attend a Monk conference so long age. But it was needed to get there so I'm not so sad.
I would like it back because of the memories. I refinished the wood in my 9th grade shop class.
Yep, we were allowed to bring guns to school back then.
Monk…..yes those were the good old days. I know all too well about having to sell stuff. I had a Remington Model 700 BDL stock 30/06 that I had to sell, during one of the first winters I was married, to put Oil in the tank to stay warm….Had to do it….didn’t want to part with the 9mm or the .410, so it was the rifle…..other than my 69 SS Chevelle, it was the only thing of any value to sell quick that I could part with…the 69 went a few years later…lol

Was her email Seahag2016@ bjmedia.org?
I always thought that was spam, all she did was ask all the DoD workers for donations.

Potato Gun? Really, me? I don’t think so, but it said my wife is a Fully auto P90 with Zombie rounds. Obviously gender biased.
I can, or used to, be able to drop anything, including a Grizzly, with my old, and I mean old, Remington 241A semi auto .22 LRHP.
One shot to an eyeball will bonce around the brains of the thickest of skulls. I don't know why but I always aim for the eyes.
I both blame and thank my Grandmother for her training... RIP my Dear Grandmother, you did your Grandson well. I'll be joining you soon enough. : )
Maybe they know about the coming Potapocalypse where potatos come alive and devour all the progressive liberals (heads full of starch you know), then come after conservatives because all that starch made them crave meat. A potato gun could really save your life. Muhahahaha /8-)
Monk…When I was a kid in Northern MN…we hunted deer..quail…caught lots of Walleyes..Northerns..Muskies…but the hardest thing to get were them damn crows…big ones too…they would outsmart us every time…you absolutely could not sneak up on them to get close enough for a shot…we had to use .22 to hunt them…but their intelligence was amazing…in 10 years of hunting…I never even hit one once...no matter,never really wanted to kill one....just the thrill of the chase
Don't feel bad. I was given a bag of rubber bands and told not to shoot my eye out.

The only thing Obama has been right on, is when he said, “We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming America”
He has screwed us up real good, and he was 100% correct on that. Otherwise, he is a blathering fool.
Darmok…..sad that so many people heard that statement and yet so few took it to heart….
GP. It just goes to show you that Grubers was correct, the AmeriKan electorate is comprised of idiots. Any candidate running for potus that says that should've been knocked out of the race early on.
Stop giving so much credit to Obummer. The imposterous american, alinsky-fascist could never do it alone. Its getting direly close to 2016. Obama probably wants our attention on him since nothing is to lose except his legacy, so we bash the GOP to smitherines whenever it deems necessary. Time to usher in the new republican party for the next term and the only candidates for that are Carson, West and Rand. Although, without a doubt the actual candidates will be Christie, Jeb, Walker and very possibly Hillary.
If he told me what my name was I'd check my drivers license obama lies about everything

First off, congress only feed on souls, not cake. They make cake out of our brains, after they are done feeding on our essence.
Next, as she said, even congress can’t do without paychecks, but what she is saying, she is saying we can’t live without our feeding on the virgins souls we line up for every friday, just after we do a document dump.
If, she is correct, the queen of the damned can’t live without her loyal subjects, and especially their souls.
Feed on queen, and damn your soul, I know God already has.

Does it really matter. White, black, hispanic, asian. When is America going to stand up and say, enough? This needs to stop. This hit job, knee jerk crap needs to stop. America needs to stand up and say ENOUGH. I don’t care what color or race a criminal is, I don’t care who kills a criminal, what color or race they are. The problem is CRIME. and who is perpetrating it. When are the media going to wake up to the fact criminals are starting to run this country, and that is the problem. Not the fact that a young black man commits a crime, assaults an officer and is killed in the action.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO WAKE UP. WAKE UP. WAKE UP. WAKE UP.
There's a criminal in the WH that needs to be behind bars for releasing 10s of thousands of Illegal Alien criminals from jail/prison which includes rapists, child molesters, thieves, burglars, home invaders, robbers, car jackers, DUI drivers who have caused wrecks which include injuries & deaths AND 191 murderers. obama & Holder keep releasing them back onto our streets so they can resume their crime sprees.

I love it, my congressman was one of them. Lamborn. At least I know I am voting for the right guy.

Let’s put it this way, just like when we went through the sequester and shutdown of the Govt. There are “Essential people.” They will get paid no matter what, and will not be sent home. In DHS, there are 80% essential. Therefore, the only ones that will be sent home are the secretaries, janitors, and a few paper pushers. The country can afford that, and we still will get our groping at the airports. So, I just don’t see a downside, and I still get to have bubba at the airport, grab my junk, before I get on that 12 hour flight. It makes me miss my wife more, although she accuses me of cheating, since I travel so much.
SINCE, Best idea that I have read yet today. Make it frustrating for them and remove the batteries first.
@chips1: Lol! That's quite the mental image!
@RJJ: Better yet, send 'em Renaissance style ones. Hand cranks and such. Make 'em work for it.
Since, Not that I want to look it up, but I bet that there just has to be a Steampunk version out there somewhere.
Chips, dang near fell out of my chair with that one! LMAO.
If Democrats don't want to follow the Constitution, why are Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans intent on restoring the 60 vote threshold Harry Reid altered to a simple majority? McConnell seems all too content playing the 'I win' game where the Democrats win no matter what. What did McConnell promise the Democrats when they helped him reclaim his Senate seat? Is there any difference from his treacherous track record? We'd be in the same position on this issue whether Reid or McConnell were the majority leader...
Darmok, was it good for you? ;-)
As Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) told reporters, ""I think at this point we've engaged in an exercise of tactical malpractice, self-delusion and self-destruction," Dent said. "Some folks have a harder time to face the political reality than others. Some people want to be able to save face and get something from the Senate ... and I said we're not going to get anything."
This is political theater. Even if the Senate went along, and they won't, Obama would still veto.
Those who forget history or doomed to repeat it. Remember when a Cruz-lead revolt shut down the government until Obamacare was no more? Now that we have control of both houses I, a ModerateRepublican, hope we can actually govern this country and stop trying to simply score political points rather than move the ball forward (say, take up the Senate bill on immigration and debate that instead of this futile gesture).

Look at it this way, would you rather have McPeak spewing his liberal love as a “Former Chief of Staff”. Or would you rather hear the truth from an honest man?
I would take Latrell all day long over most of the former Generals that spew to whoever will listen.
that's why i have mixed feelings about it Darm.
i want as much truth as i can get and i think it's really important for people to understand what the SEALs do...
but on the other hand, i'm uncomfortable with the thought of them becoming "celebrities".
i'm fearful of potential SEALs factoring future book-deals and movies into their decision-making process. Today's impressionable pimple-popping teen dorks are tomorrow's SEALs.

At least grandma wasn’t flashing her boobs or butt.
Thank goodness we are talking about Madonna, not like there is anything else happening, just a sloooowwww news day.
Yes... Tomorrow, we will get the bad news of the Obama/Soros internet take-over. Watching Madonna's ridiculous, immature antics will pale in comparison to the death-knell internet vote being taken tomorrow. Hey, on the upside, at least those with serious internet addictions will re-discover there is a life separate and apart from their computers. When our connections slow to a turtle's pace and we are denied access to our favorite blogs/news sites, it just won't be as much fun anymore. Obamacare - Obamanet.... sure is going to be a scream!
