My grandpa’s WW1 era Winchester hatchet saw a lot of hard use before I acquired it 60 years ago.
Here are a few slightly more modern ads for guns that are still around to buy in used racks:
Of course some of these may be a tad pricy to acquire...
Superior quality is important, true. But its the fortitude and resilience that it builds in the man that really counts.
And who would not like a Machine gun or two..
Nobody has posted an ad for the 721/722 yet (I don't believe).
My 1950 .30-06 721 is still doing duty today.
Nor my favorite Remington bolt-action, center-fire rifle-the Model 725.
Well, we need to rectify that:

I fell madly in love with this lovely lady the minute I laid eyes on her.

What a great thread! Only contribution I could make at this time is a magazine ad for the Harrington & Richardson model 676 revolvers produced from 1975 to 1980. Picked one up in 2014 and got the ad from an online vendor about a year later. The ad shows the exact model I own; a 676 Convertible, with 4.5" barrel. The ad's now framed and the picture would be a bit better if I hadn't got that reflection from the glass. Got a few other older firearms ads around and I should get busy & photograph those also...
Yep, she reminds me of my lovely and sorely missed English Setter, Kate.
Here is a set of ads from Charles Daly...
Now I owned a “Charles Daly” 1911 .45, but I just thought the CD name was just used as a brand to market lots of other-makers stuff like a famous person like Sears used “Ted Willians.”
It looks like Charles Daly was a bit of a shotgunner, can anyone shed some light on Mr. Daly and his exploits?
......... I'd love to see some light shed on that topic. I thought he may have been another fictional persona from some advertising agency brainstorming session, but have no idea what the real story may be. Speaking of old gun advertising; Back when Sears & Roebuck was using the "J. C. Higgins" name I've heard that J.C. Higgins was a real person who was actually a corporate executive at Sears but have no idea if that's true. Could that be another form of an Urban Legend?
hps1 ; That's fascinating..... So there really was a Charles Daly and it seems he led an interesting, productive life, and those J.C. Higgins stories I heard back in the 1960's were pretty factual. Thanks for posting all that information. I enjoy this topic and am really loving this thread.
One of my favorite ads for all the wrong reasons is the one depicting a magazine from an H&K pistol with the cartridges loaded backwards in it. I can't imagine a more embarrassing advertisement for a gun company.
Always good to seek a second or third opinion before going with an ad!
Yep, that's the one!
Here are some rifles well out of my price range.
Not vintage, but amazing pieces of art to look at anyway!
Ahhh, one can always dream .
