I was cleaning out the house and found a 1996 Shooters Bible. While flipping through, it jumped out at me that gun prices have not gone up in the past 23 years. In fact, models still in production have either stayed the same or have dropped significantly. Just seemed very odd that it would buck inflation like that. These were the days of $9,000 Toyota Corollas that go for $22k+ now. So, I would say that if you are buying as an investment, you had better stick with models that have gone away or are going away (The Python is my example of that).
