@Don Alaska I believe I recommended "Unintended Consequences" to you some time ago. Today, a reference to it popped up unexpectedly! The story: I watch very little TV, Wheel of Fortune when permitted, followed often by the first 10 minutes or so of "HAG" TV's House Hunters International, wherein folks move, usually, from the States to some old, established historical area, often in Europe. This evening I was amazed to see a young couple moving from Miami to Solothurn, Switzerland! My wife noted my amazement, in answer to which I rummaged through my crumbling copy of John Ross's wonderful book, "Unintended Consequences", looking for the Solothurn advertisement I had viewed when reading te book in the 1990s. The Solothurn was an instrumental part of the success of the main character in proving his worth as an American patriot. Ross included the following advertisement from about 1963 which appeared in various trade and mechanical magazines, as well as, I suppose, firearms magazines. These rifles were actually sold to the American public back then as collectors'pieces. I hope the entire ad print is legible, for it illustrates how different the times and attitudes regarding America's "Gun Culture", were then. If illegible, holler, I will re-size.
