Honestly the one that really got me in this auction was the Lanchester. It was expected to fall in the 4-6k range and ended up in the 10k area. That really surprised me; everything is climbing, and fast. I don't know if 10 years down the road I'll be able to afford another one. I sorta had my eyes on a beltfed, like an M60, or an MP5. But those are going up quickly too. $50+k for an M60? Holy ****
Your M16 will be worth that of the Thompson in a decade, I assume, not really a viable source lol. I just had the same thought, that I'd have to start making some serious coin to catch up to its rate of inflation. If I ever splurge a lot of money for a gun, it'll be a Thompson for sure. Those things will always increase in price.

I like that MG42, too, but damn it went for a lot of money.

Another gun I'd like is a Glock 18, but that'll never happen haha.
