    Old Time Ad's

    I came across this....anybody got any other good ones? I just picked up a near version of the Colt .22 camp gun....

    What a sweet little, straight shooting, target pistol....and 100 rounds is really cheap.

    Not bad. $85 for a Colt Woodsman that could probably be sold in the realm of $500 or more today.

    Wonder how many are left in "Grandpa's old stuff in the attic"?

    Wonder how long the barrel is on that? Wonder if it's still legal with the folding/removable stock unless the barrel is at least 16"? Makes me think of the old "Buntline Special".

    Sure illustrates that a "Dollar sure isn't what a dollar used to be".

    If I am correct, that is a Marbles Game Getter, and they require a tax stamp.
