i likke looking at old gun advertisements from back in the day where guns cost under $10.00 and could be sent to you through mail order. this one made me LOL though, its for the ivers johnson "accidental discharge" proof revolver. so feel free to give to to your young daughter, you never know when she might need to protect her doll. but dont worry it is 100% safe and impossible to have a accidental discharge.

I remember going with my dad to Western Auto Parts and while he was getting stuff for the vehicles I'd wonder over to the gun section and window shop the inventory...i was probably 9 or 10 years old...idk if there are even any more Western Autos out there but you wont find them stocking any guns anymore :(

I had the chance to visit an Ace hardware in Skagway Alaska. They had guns instead of the crappy lawn decorations

$6, but the average annual salary was what, $3000?

Ace in marysville sells guns. Has more stock than some gun stores in the area.

That's pretty cool, nothing like that around here.

Great ad! I would buy one for six bucks. You know if it's still good? :p

Reminds me of this one:

I actually have one of those Over Johnson revolvers. Fascinating design. It has a little trigger safety similar to a Glock.
