I had a pre 64 rem 721 in 300 h&h. Low serial number. Joined the Navy and parents sold the gun. I bought it for $180.00, parents sold it for the same price. The original owner contacted me and said he would buy it back for $2400.00 a few years later. He said it was worth around $3200.00. Who would of thunk.

Back somewhere around 1980 I was on a trap league and a guy had a brand new Parazzi (sp) single barrel over/under, bottom barrel only super high rib. He couldn't hit squat with it. Told me "$500 and it's yours."

I messed up then but 4 years ago I did a small ($150) plumbing job on a lawyers hunting cabin, replaced a few broken plastic water lines with Pex) and he gave me a Rizzini 20ga side by side. It has the mans name that made it engraved so I looked it up. Used in GOOD shape, this is in like new shape, $5,000. So I did okay.

I didn't buy my duty carry when we were switching from Beretta to Sig. The only one I didn't buy, and I regret it. The finish was worn off to the metal in places, but it was honest wear. Wish I had bought it

In the middle 90's I had a friend who owned a gun store. I could have gotten a connex full of SKS's at $69 each. 1440 round cases of 7.62x39 was also $69. Should have bought a connex full of that too. Norinco 5.56 was dirt cheap then too. $59 for 1200 if I remember correctly. Norinco 1911 clones for $200. The one I bought and later sold ran great. MAK 90's $149. Had a Class 3 UZI I bought for $2000. Sold it for $4000. Now worth $10,000. Who knew?

Could have bought an UZI A model for $500. It was legal in CA back then and would be worth a lot more now....
