By "in the crate" I assume that he means in the wooden crate of 30 rifles. Back in the 80's, we'd get them like that at around $29.99 a rifle. I wish I still had a few of those crates, as we bought, then sold, probably 50-60 of those crates. COSMOLINE city! I still have an empty crate around here, somewhere, that I store kayak and canoe paddles and life jackets in.
