At least three good things are left from the 1970's?

I don't say it. Very good music was made in the '70s. And firearms such as yours. Nice pics!

The High standard pictured is even nicer than my Model 12 Riot.
The feedability of the magazine is a definate plus compared to the Model 12.
The Model 12, however, does win hands down in looks category.

The 1970's was truly my period of first awareness of the real world. They were good years following the turbulent 60's.

Probably my ex-wife saying it, referring to the point that I was born in the '70's.

The last great era of the police revolver, what's not to like?

Also, the very last of the great bolt action war rifles date from that era:

Wouldn't turn my nose up at any of those products of the 1970's!

Can't say much about them - I wasn't born yet in the 70's (though I didn't miss them by much :)). I do have a few guns made during that era that I enjoy though.

Somewhere there's a Colt Gold Cup that disagrees with the notion that the 1970's were a waste.

Nice guns in those pics.

70's gave us cars like the 1970 Rallye 350 Oldsmobile, Dodge Daytona, Pontiac
Judge, and of course lots of firearms~! ;) :D

I like disco and I was already grown by then. Also, you did not die from taking a babe home for the night then either. A little shot of penicillin did the trick....chris3

You need someone holding the shotgun dressed in bellbottoms, tiedied shirt with armless jean jacket with buttons saying peace with an afro.

a chick holding the small .38sp revolver dressed like a charlies angle.

and a cop that takes names and kicks butt with the .357

Watergate, Best-Picture Oscar Rocky , the Bi-Centennial--What a decade! My first introduction to firearms occurred in 72 when my Dad let me fire his service S&W .38 and a Marlin .22 rifle--you never forget your first time (no pun intended).

In the 70's I bought a Ruger Single Six for $95.00 Find one for that price today, and that was new. I bought a Remington 700 BDL and 6X Leupold Scope for $185.00 new. Copenhagen snuff was $.25 all day long.
The 70's weren't so bad after the turbulant 60's.

Very good music was made in the '70s.

There actually has been very little good music since the 70s IMO.

There was some good rock music in the late 1970s.

I had this mint 10-5 that was perfect in every way. It was a beautiful gun and I had the original box, papers, and cleaning tools. No scratches, no wear, nothing. I never ever should have sold it.

To each his own
But I have no mint or even minty guns.
I by them used and I use them some more.
If I really like 'em I keep 'em.
Otherwise I sell 'em and hopefully buy some more.

Everything was made better in those days actually. I know people with refrigerators and air conditioners made at that time that are still working. Try that with a modern version of those machines.

Aint that thetruth. I have a microwave older than i am from when i was growing up, still works. never needed repair. Has followed me to countless apartments...lol it so big i can cook a turkey.

I have a top loader VHS player still works.

I have several guns from the 70's that I plan on keeping til I'm planted. And most of the ladies I met in the 70's were NOT a waste of time. But the love for my 70's guns did last longer I must admit. So did their usefulness. I'm gonna shut up now.

We got a Mac-10 (1979)and a nice High Standard 357 (1972) back in the 1970s plus I got my Ithaca Super Single shot 410 (72) and my first pellet gun (1970)during that decade.

Oh I wish we could all go back to the days when Guns were acceptable and expected gifts for growing boys at Chirstmas.
