Dug this out of the deep recesses of the safe. Probably bought this in 1979 / 1980.

Stuff is over $6.00 per box now. At the time $2.48 hurt. Stuff worked heck on squirrels though.
Had to be sure to head shoot them.

Yeah I have found several items in boxes that make me feel like an antique.

It probably won't be too long before Kmart becomes a thing of the past.
I haven't set foot in a KMart since the Clinton administration.

Yep, Kmart and Sears will not last out the year in any form that were themselves. Eddie Lampert has destroyed them. Any real value on the real estate side is being sold off to other Eddie Lampert entities.

He has tried to sell off the branding side, but really what is in their brand name anymore. It is just a name. Sears does not manufacture anything. Do not know why Stanley Black and Decker bought out the Craftsman name when they did with the deal they did when Sears is circling the drain. They should of just waited. As for Kenmore and Diehard, where is that value? I would rather have the Maytag, Whirlpool, LG , Panasonic, Johnson Controls, etc. name.

The future consumers do not care unless it says Apple on it and is delivered by a drone. :p His vision of a lean and mean (barely existent) brick and mortar and an online digital "Shop your Way Rewards member" Amazon killer is not going to happen to any large extent, at least with his leadership.

Hate to be a supplier for them when they are going to be way down on the lien list in bankruptcy behind all the Eddie entities.

This is just my opinion with no real information and could be completely wrong. I hope Kmart and Sears do figure a way to survive.

I grew up a Sears and Kmart kid. My Mom worked for Kmart for years in the Deli and then the cafeteria and then to the checkouts as thy kept closing those sections. Fond memories of those lousy subs and sandwiches and Icee's. Just now remembering my Mom's voice on the public address system calling out the blue light specials brings back some memories. Getting a little sad missing the parents and brother that has passed.

Shot many a squirrel quite dead with .22 shorts and pellets from a Benjamin air rifle.

Pretty sure those are from 1983, back then Kmart put the date on the price label. Someone I fished with in the mid 80's clued me into it, he always wanted to make sure he was getting the freshest fishing line and not line that sat on the shelf for a long time. Not sure it made a difference in line quality but it made him feel good.

Any way cool find.

This is a reminder of how simple things where and how they've changed. Many stores like them and hardware stores sold guns and ammo. Now they'd be run out of town for just suggesting they had either in their ads. So many people are scared of their own shadow now.

Guy I used to work with grew up in the Midwest in the fifties on a farm.

Said many times he and Dad went into town to the local hardware store to
buy dynamite. Just like buying a hammer.

We used CCI mini-mags to kill ground hogs in the orchard. I can remember when they were $1.99 for 100. For regular long rifle it was .50 a box. This was back in the late 60's. Bob

How many were not quite dead?
None that I recall. Shot a big swamp rabbit with the pellet rifle once, took two more to the head before he quit kickin'. I was 7 years old, so pellets were all I had.

.22 shorts are instant death with a good hit. I mostly made head shots, but 50 yards out, I'd just shoot for the upper body. There's a might more drop with the .22 short.

Squirrel die easy. Bad breath could kill 'em. :rofl:
