Relative to the same quality guns (Pythons, SAA's, etc.) my estimate is that $1000 today will buy you what $100 would have bought you in about 1970 which was when the dollar was backed by gold and/or silver. We may even be a bit worse off than that.
Things like electronics and other items that are made in China are much more affordable today as compared to 1970.
I was buying guns in 1970. I could usually go to a gun show with $100 in my pocket and come home with a good
used Python or a SAA. Today a used SAA (3rd Gen) would be a bargain at $1000.
