Used to love looking at those ads in American Rifleman back then.

Mail order to boot.

I should have saved my allowance and had my father buy some of those Lugers for me.

My grandfather brought one(luger) back from the war. The story goes he got it off a dead German. My grandfather was the youngest of 11.  Apparently one of his older brothers sold it for a small fortune in the 50s.  No idea of value back then but I know they never spoke again after that.  By the time I was born (74) all his siblings but one were dead and gone.  Wish I knew more about it but that's the story I got from my dad who has also since passed on.

I got my first Buck Knife, a 301, from that display in 1972, Christmas gift from my Grandma, I was in high school.  Bought my second, a Buck 105, while in the Army at the APG MD in 1976.  In the last 35 years I have gotten carried away buying up all the old Buck's, Browning's, and Winchesters I wanted as a teenager.  1960's catalog page and display case and some of my Buck's. OH
