    Exclamation $40 for "Like new"surplus Model 1911 .45 - Delivered right to your door via Postal service

    That's what you could buy, among a great many other deals, if it were 1965.

    Thumbing through a 1965 mail order catalog from Heritage Firearms in Wilton CT.

    All delivered right to your door via US Mail with no more of "background check" than if you were buying, oh, towels.

    How far we've come.

    Oh, and BTW:

    Violent crimes per 100,000 people in 1965 - 2,449

    Violent crimes per 100,000 people in 2009 - 3,466

    (2009 is the most recent year stats are available)

    And I have a copy of the 1927 bannerman catalog with "rapid-fire" machine guns and cannons as used in the Great War.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    Duty is the most sublime word in the English language. Do your duty in all things. You can not do more than your duty. You should never wish to do less than your duty.
