    Gunslinger Cowgirl Betty

    I was going through old photos yesterday and I came across this one of me. I was around 9 or 10 years old. It's snowing in my backyard in New Jersey, and I'm playing cowboys and indians with a sled for a horse... and I've got a really big peacemaker capgun.

    Great Pic Betty!

    Oh...I'm positive that you meant to say that you were playing.... "Bovine~Persons & Native Americans"
    and NOT Cowboys & Indians.
    Seriously what is incredibly amazing to me (Looking At That "Little Girl" of you) is how REALLY Déjà vu it IS to the posters and photo advertising art that you are doing these days to further firearm education and defensive gun rights for women. It's uncanny!

    Most of the time I was the Native American defending my property rights with a spear my brother made for me out of a flattened spoon taped to a plucked feather duster stick.

    (Mom: "Where my featherduster go?")

    We had loads of cap guns, squirt guns and rubberband guns. My favorite was the pump-action squirt shotgun. It was dark brown with pistol grip, and from a distance, probably looked real. It was only good for maybe 4 or 5 blasts, but you sure soaked the other person good. It suffered a catastrophic mechanical failure after I clocked my brother over the head with it repeatedly. (Hey, if you run out of ammo, use it for a bludgeoning tool.) And the shotgun is still my short-range weapon of choice.

    And yes, I had Barbie dolls, too. Giant Barbie was very good at trampling down my brother's army of little green plastic soldiers.

    LOL.......I can remember having a Mattel "Fanner 50" a "Ricochett 50" a nickle "Paladene Colt" including the removable lead with brass cartridges to place the "greenie stickem caps" on.. I also had a M1A1 Thompson, that I placed a roll of caps in, pulled the bolt charging lever back (just like the M1A1)and it fired all 50 caps if I held the trigger down.. Heyyyyyy maybe that's where I got the itch for full auto huh?

    Before everyone else piles on.... yes, she has her finger on the trigger and yes, it is pointed straight at the camera.

    You guys will be HAPPY to know that a mint condition Fanner 50 or or a Rick O Shay or many of the other popular toy firearms of your past will set you back more $$$ than a real SIG P220. They are HIGHLY collectible.

    My toy gun rig had a derringer in the buckle. You pushed a little lever and it popped out (still attached to the buckle). You could remove it also. Not sure but seems like it was a Paladin rig.

    Anyone familiar with this?

    Boyyyyyyy QK.......did you bring back some good memories with those pics!!
    I remember Mayor Curley, from Boston Ma, attempting to confiscate these real looking toys, way back in the late 50's to early 60's.. And those Mattel detective specials, with the cartridges that you pressed the bullets into and placed a greenie stickem cap onto it, in order to make the bang.

    Yeah Bud - right! LOL!

    Betty great pic - the cylinder looks huge!! Indeed a walk down memory lane with GK's offerings too.

    I am trying to remember - my ''very bestest'' cap gun - was a silver six-shooter, ''Lone Star'' was it called, I forget. Thing that was so cool tho was - it had six dummy rounds whereby a sorta zinc cast bullet dealie slipped down inside a brass case with holes in the bottom. You ''assembled'' the ammo by taking out the zinc insert - place caps (thick wad LOL) down inside and then reassemble. Once all six were primed up - load em in cylinder per std S/A thru side gate and - off ya went! Drop hammer on one and bang!

    This was back in mid to later 50's BTW!!

    I used to sneak around locally, trying to remain invisible and also doing self-imposed''security dooty'' around the nearby local stores - heck - these days I'd have created a local lock down

    Oh, the old days (wallow, wallow!). That ol' gun must have gotten me into reloading!!
