We're working on our time machine after taking a look back at these gun ads. Even after you adjust for inflation, the prices of these firearms are insanely good. Even crazier are the ways in which you could acquire the weapons; mail-order guns and layaway are a thing of the past now.


From the Colt Woodsman (listed at $69!) to anti-tank rifles, it's incredible to see not only the types of firearms you could purchase; the ease of purchase and cheap prices are what keep us coming back. It's a thing that will make you wish for the good old days again.[gallery ids="|Back in the day, you had the option to put this anti-tank gun on layaway.,|Adjusted price: $796.35 ,|Absolutely insane prices in this 1961 ad.,|A Belgian-made FNC for $599. Yep. You read that right.,|Remember when you could just order a gun in the mail?,|Adjusted price: $646.38,|The Standard Model 870 would now cost $745.02,|What cost $200 in 1951 would be nearly $2,000 today."]
