Oh must I ruin such a story with facts about the devaluation of the dollar!
Yes, for knowledge must be shared!
A $40. purchase in 1955 would today require $338.29 to purchase! This is a 745% increase...so in many ways guns are cheaper today!
Nonetheless, David Henry Thoreau's dictum still holds true:
"The price of a thing is the amount of life you have to exchange for it."
