    I use to go to the "White Front" big department store when I was a kid back in the 60's.

    White Front, stirs a memory. Did they become Gemco? Was there one in the Bay Area? Ahh to be able to shoot 20 ga 2 3/4 lead 4's, or, heaven forbid, 3" lead 4's:rolleyes:

    White Front and Gemco were two different stores. Gemco was owned by Lucky Stores. Both were open same period of time.Both went bankrupt. Gemco closed its doors in Dec. of 1986. Worked 16 years for Gemco. Then Target for 19 before retiring in 2006.

    Close to where I hunt
    Wow back in those days I could buy any gun I wished to have , pay for it , then walk out the door with it ! OH how our society has changed ?
    Those Fed Hi-powers were $2.50 a box like the Mark 5's and believe it or not , they came in 20 box cases . Salt Slough was the happy hunting
    grounds on the freitas Ranch and as I hunted most of the river along Joe Gallo's , before it became West Bear , the price of gas was 25 cent gal
    on Mchenry where I went to JC . Looking back , those were the Good Old Days for sure !

    Well, if you lived there, then you also remember some pretty fabulous pheasant hunting East of town towards Oakdale and Riverbank. They were everywhere, all gone.
