    Boy that must have been a big seller in the Sears and Roebuck catalog.

    Is there any wonder why we don't know of any one of us who's Grandad had one of them.
    Yikes.
    I wonder if the Smithsonian even has one, or maybe the NRA Firerms Museum?

    One of those "good ideas on paper" kinda things.

    It apparently was a flop because too many "Dads" were wearing it when they got home and played "Patty Cake" with their young daughters...... imagine it......"as fast as you CAN". Bang.

    I seem to vaguely remember ripping that page out of the catalog sitting in the out-house. Then again, I seem to vaguely remember mail delivery twice a day, milk delivered in glass bottles to my door, cashing in pop bottles for 2 cents each and getting in trouble playing in the basement coal bin

    Think that would have given me an edge playing Cowboys and Indians with the neighborhood kids back in the day?

    Apparently Chicago sucked even back then.
    Actually using that contraption against a mobster would have seen you thrown in jail for life.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
