Gun advertisements sure have changed over the years.
Those great ads take us back to another time in history.
Step back in time and enjoy these vintage gun ads from years gone by.
This kid is having a great Christmas morning. Remember your first gun?
Accuracy is still the name of the game. Did this proud marksman just come out of an old diner in the background or a gun club?
The Colt National Match Grade .45 was only $40.75 back then…
Hammer the hammer? Is that really a good idea? Lawyers did not get into the marketing business at this point…
Oh the prices! Mail order machine guns! It was a different time…
When was a handgun something quite different? This one certainly was!
Kleins’s mail order guns! Now that would be incredible if it was still true today.
A High Standard Pistol under the Christmas tree. We still dream of presents like that.
Smith & Wesson still gets it done today like they did back so many years ago. These old lemon squeezers are not the S&W revolvers of today. A .500 S&W Magnum revolver of today would have blown minds back then!
A classic bolt action .22 rifle never goes out of style.
Take a look at the chamberings listed below for the H&R double barrel hammer gun. When was the last time you ever saw a .44 W.C.F. shot cartridge? Probably never but the 28 gauge is still a somewhat popular game getter and clay target buster of today’s elite sportsman.
Here kid have a Winchester.
Family fun back in the day…
Anti-tank rifle by mail order? Yes please! Fire up the time machine now!
That ne’er-do-well picked the wrong window…
Well now that fella is in for a surprise!
Talk about politically incorrect for today! A little girl playing with a revolver. Better teach some gun safety and raise her right.
