Looking at some of these threads, I saw a few references to the Calverton Range.
I remember back in the 70s or early 80s driving down the L I E to I think Ext 72 and hanging a right. I remember old George sitting under a beach umbrella next to a beat up 63 Chevy and handing him 5 bucks to shoot for the day. Anyone else go back that far?.............Lew

While we are talking about T & T, Here are some Newsday ads, from back at that time. Enjoy!
I wish Prices now!
Can you remember around what year the ad's are from?

One ad was dated July 6, 1987, and the other was August 8, 1987. Its always fun finding stuff like that. A while back I found a receipt from my Dad's purchase of a brand new Remington 721D, from Stoeger Arms, Long Island City warehouse. The price was $48.11, and the special, hand delivery shipping to my Dad's house was a massive 78 cents!

That date is about right. I bought a few M1 Garands for around $279 and a few M1 carbines for just under $200. I bought so many guns, ammo, mags and stuff from them including my first M1A.

I stopped by back in the early to mid 2000s and they were a shell of their former self.

They had to remodel after hurricane Sandy, They had a couple feet of water in the place. If in the area for work, I'll drop in there, maybe once-twice a year. There still can be deals to be found in there, but, I agree with you, not nearly what it used to be.
