Hi Jack,

I ran into a fellow about 15 years ago that when I asked him about having 
any thick records. He said used to but all are gone. I was about to walk 
away then he added  we used them for target practice.... Sad.

I haven't purchased any of the "thick" records for quite awhile, but used to 
get them for $5 or so. I don't think they are particulary rare, but many 
have been ruined by playing on the wrong type of machine and scratching them 
up.

BTW Gary, Terry, K9FMX lives down the street from me.

Anyone know what the old "thick" records are worth these days?
