Fun With a Gun Auction Sale Bill

Fun With a Gun Auction Sale Bill

I always enjoy looking at sale bills from local gun auctions. We know that there are as many as 200-300 million guns in circulation out there, but what exactly are they? Pistols and black guns get all the publicity these days, but what do people actually have in their closets? This list reminds us that for many years, people in this country bought their guns at Montgomery Wards, Penney's or Sears. Even chains like Macy's sold guns up into the 1970s. And people bought guns for prosaic purposes like shooting doves or controlling vermin. Have a look at this list of guns from a Rick Rediger Auction ( in Wyanet, Ill., this Sunday.. If you're like me, you'll need the store brand reference section of Blue Book of Gun Values or the Numrich Gun Parts catalog to ID some of the department store models.
