Advertisements from Guns Magazine in 1959

    These advertisements appeared in issues of Guns Magazine in 1959.

    At that price I would haven taken ‘em all.
    The Blue Book of Gun Values has increase in price as much as the guns inside it.

    The following advertisement for Norma ammunition surprised me because it is so modern looking in contrast the above ads. Compare it with the cover of Hornady’s Handbook of Cartridge Reloading (below).
