    $1500 M1A "loaded". Before that $650 Parker Hale 4T. Both have increased in value but I have no intention of selling either. I will leave that to my heirs.

    Colt King Cobra. Less than $500. Still have it, may have it buried with me. :D

    Haven't bought any NIB guns lately, prices have gone up quite a bit since I bought most of my guns.

    Colt Combat Commander, series 80. I think it was $500. One of the worst, if not the worst guns I have ever had. Pretty, but totally unreliable. Colt should have been ashamed to put their name on it.

    Most expensive? A Sears-Roebuck double barrel 12 ga. $79.95 out of the Sears catalog in 1967 I guess it was. I was 15 years old and worked ten hour days, for $5.00 a day picking tomatoes to earn that money.

    It was worth every dime.

    But when someone is working at 50 cents an hour, that 160 hours needed to buy that shotgun is a lot of time and effort. For comparison - at federal minimum wage today - that's 1160 bucks. Even at really low wages of 3 bucks an hour, its nearly $500.

    "Expensive" isn't always about dollar cost. It can be relative to wealth, or in this case, I imagine its contingent upon the effort expended to get it.

    Ten or eleven years ago, when I had my first custom Ruger single action revolver built, I was working 12-14hrs a day at a paltry $9/hr. It cost me in the neighborhood of $1500 and was worth every single penny. I've had three more built in the following years but that first is still my favorite.

    I make a lot more money these days and about four years ago splurged on the biggest yet. That would be my Merkel model 280 28ga double to the tune of $4000. Also worth every penny.
