What happened to the Video you were going to post over a month ago? You know, the one showing your quick draw with the airsoft. You posted it to your Father-In-Law in the Phillipenes; surely you can post it to Armslocker.

Prices on that old collectible stuff are often just goofy. For not much more than the cost of that old magazine, a person can get an entire, new 1911 .22 conversion kit, including a magazine or two.

I paid $60 for the entire .22 unit in 1970. Now the best price i see on a colt unit is $600. Are you clearing 10x as much as you were in 1970? Factory workers at Allis chalmers, puttting nuts on bolts, cleared $5 an hour back then, plus a LOT of bennies. The equivalent of $80 an hour, gross wages and bennies figured in, in today's money.

on the world market, gold was $60 an oz, and now it's $1300 an oz, even tho there's probably 10x as much of it in existence as there was in 1970. Does that tell you anything about what they've done to the value of the $?
