Heck, 1984, hadn't bought my own first gun yet. Just had Dad's WWII trophy Mauser HSc.

Wish I had an SA like that then, but truth be told, I've traded in more great guns than I am willing to admit!

In 1984 I was attending University.
In my safe I has a Ruger Security Six, Ruger 10/22 rifle, 3" heavy barrel S&W model 10 and 4" pencil barrel S&W model 10.

I had no money so I couldn't afford much ammo. I had so few 38 Special and 357 mag ammo that I would occasionally clean each one with a cotton towel. I usually had couple boxes of 22lr ammo that I would buy at K-Mart for $0.99/box.

That picture makes me miss my Nikon's.. I have a D70, but it is not the same...

Oh, 1984, I had been out of the Navy for 9 years, out of the National Guard for 4 years, and my oldest child was almost 2 years old.

Pardon me, but I have to go take a nap now...

I commented earlier, but neglected to mention that in 1984 I'd been retired from USAF for 4 years and working for Texas Instruments here in Dallas, Texas for most of that time.

Back to the OT, I borrowed a Nikon Coolscan V slide scanner from a friend and converted a lot of my slides. That unit does a much better job than the cheap one I had bought earlier, and the ability to control the improvements was very good. It was incredible how well it could bring out a usable picture from a slide that had faded to almost transparency.

Interesting. I bought my first Harley in 1984, also--traded in a Yamaha 650 twin for a 1000cc Sportster. I had it modified to use a belt drive (had the only Sportster in the area with one). In 1989 I was in a bad accident and had to give up riding; the Sportster was fixed, though, and ended up being bought by a dealer from Holland (the Netherlands).

Me too, I sold my academy Beretta 92FS to another deputy for peanuts 12 years ago. He sold it to someone else and it's gone. I still kick myself for that mistake.
