All of them. The comment Sears sold guns reminds me Penny’s, Target, Woolworth, Western Auto, and most hardware and general stores sold them. Oshman’s was a sporting goods store I bought several from. I remember my dad buying a new rem 700 bdl 30-06 he still has from Target late 60’s he brags for a $100 bill. I remember him getting a colt new frontier convertible 22, 22 mag from there also for about the same price. Seemed pretty much everyone carried guns then.

Same here. All but the teaberry gum.

Teaberry sounds like something you would order today at starbucks!

And how about the "its nine o'clock, do you know where your children are?" every night on tv.

I guess you, like most on here, are Texan so you can be excused for not knowing about teaberry. "Teaberry" is a slang name for Wintergreen through the Southeastern United States where it grows wild.
