I was rummaging around in the basement and came across a book. The title is: THE NEW GUNS ANNUAL FACTS AND PHOTOS ON EVERY AMERICAN FIREARM AND POPULAR IMPORTS. What's so neat about it is - it was printed in 1961. It covers .22's all the way up to big game rifles, including handguns. So, if anyone is interested what your gun cost in 1961 (along with a short bio) I'd be happy to tell you. Feel free to ask away!
