    Come on Entertech... it's a magazine, not a clip.

    1982 was in the days before magazines. Clips were all that was available. It was a simpler time.

    I like how they called it a "water weapon".....must avoid the G word even back then.

    Detachable stock, pistol grip, foward grip, a "thing that goes up," 10+ rounds, "evil" black rifle look, AND no batteries required!!

    I want one.

    I had most of those old guns, and it was no big deal back then.
    Those were the days...but not ALL is lost.

    I'm going up to see my 5 year old grandson (from FL to IN) in two weeks...among other things, I thought we might start him off with this.

    No ammo shortage either, I'm starting him off with 4,000 rouds.

    Sounds like he'll be wide-eyed and excited.

    Of course, it's a 650rd capacity gun, there. I'm sure "combat" reloads, moving off the "X" and effective use of cover will be part of the training. (Perhaps next time.)

    Enjoy the trip. Li'l Johnnie's gonna love it.

    Remember, I had one!! It was my favorite then, and the one "toy" I wish I still had. Even the holster was great, didn't have all the fancy crap on it that all the other cap gun holsters had, and that made the whole thing sort of special.

    Also had a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun growing up. Used to put a couple drops of 3-in-1 oil down the barrel, that improved the air seal and seemed (in my young mind) to increase accuracy.

    That's a great commercial. Kids could still be kids and have fun. It is sad to see how bad things are today. What attitudes will todays kids have 10 or 20 years from now? Thanks for the post EMP.

    Things use to be normal.

    With toys like that, how did I every live long enough to reach the legal age to purchase real guns?




    Now I remember how I did it...they were just toys and my parents taught me to be responsible and held me accountable for my actions.
