    I'm just going to say that the election is still very much in the air. I don't know how much people have been paying attention to the "issues" with the voting in various states, but things are getting interesting. Gonna leave it at that to avoid starting a huge argument.

    We're in the part of the horror movie where the monster has been killed, but there is still 20 minutes left on the runtime. :eek:

    I was in school then. In my class I was theoretically buying in 1980 and seeing my wealth in 1990. There was a profit but not huge. I actually did invest some after I got out. Still do. Did good on some. Made some pretty bad choices too on some gambles. But they were educated guesses. Had a shot at being big via mergers and such. So is the high risk market. I keep my retirement pretty safe and diverse.

    The innovations have not been in design but in manufacturing processes.
    Metal injection moulding, using plastics for certain parts, lighter high strength metal alloys, CNC machining stations that close tolerance specs down to 0.001 meaning the end of hand fitting parts.
    But most firearms enthusiasts look down on those innovations.
    What would a revolver or pistol cost now using 100 year old technics?

    You are correct sir.
    Add in that Fox news has the credibility of CNN and the new york times.

    THR is not financial 101. This is not really on topic and as such, we are done.
