we all will be gone............and those who are left,{if any} to collect...........will be buying all the reproduction stuff,manual's cases,books,gun part's even gun's, drum's........clip's,and they will be stained,used,soiled,marked up by then..........

or at least with fifty more years of age really look like the real deal......................

and the old colt's will look another fifty years of age.........

and if anybody does care at that time............{probably not}heck some of the kids will be in the sixties by then.

all ww1 and ww2 and korea,and nam vet's..will be deceased.......................and gulf war will be all retired.........and the latest iraq fiasco............vet's.......will all be old and grey.............................how freakin depressing........................sorry i started this topic.............anyhow take care,ron

Hmm, 50 years? I'd be 98! I'll be lucky if I can push the bullets into the magazine let alone take aim.

By then if things keep on the current trend a Colt Tommy will be (if you can find one that works) somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000.> contemporary semis will most likely run around $5 to $6 G's.>

But by then I won't really care (if I'm still around that is)!

Not to worry little buddy by then they will have developed 45 calibre Viagra™, and you should be able to just shove those bullets in the mag, and shoot it straight and far... *wink*

Well, I'll be 73 and trying to keep the tradition alive, if all goes according to plan...

And yes, I'll be buying repros along with as much original as I can. Wherever I buy my "vacation home" is gonna have to be legal for everything, short-barrel, full-auto, you name it, but here in WA ("primary residence"--I have too much family here to permanently leave...), I'll be stuck with the long-barrel Kahrs. (41" gun/64"-tall person... anyone else see a problem here? On the other hand, it might add to the intimidation factor in a home-defense scenario... Heck, as long as you can conceal it, you could pack a 1927A-5 as a "carry gun" with a Washington CPL. So, the knockoffs do have a place, I'd argue. Apologies for the tangent.)
