    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.

    :p

    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.

    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).

    -Cheers

    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.

    Here's another '70s gem

    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.
