I lucked onto that nice 70s shot. Gave me a whole day of blog fodder and the most comments EVER. (Even not counting my 8 comments.)
Something about proto mall ninjas from the 70s that gets people going. The only thing that would have made it better was one of those double shots common in the era. With the sitting portrait and the disembodied close up staring off into the distance in the upper corner. Like this.
People sure did make some bad stylistic choices in that decade. I feel fortunate to have survived.
Any firearm advancement from that decade, stylistically or otherwise? Series 70 Colt pistol with the odd barrel bushing that I have never seen in person. It doesn't seem to have remained popular or I don't know what I am looking at. Also in the 70s, the depredations of the post 1968 GCA ATF, exemplified in the Ballew Raid in Silver Spring (by me!

Anything else? Anything positive at all?
