    I havent seen one of those since the mid 1960's. Yes, I did have one when I was a kid, I completely forgot about it until I watched the video. Wow, that brings back memories. Looking at the Ebay price of them today, I sure wish I still had mine too. I dont remember what ever happened to mine. We had a flood when I was a kid, I bet it got thrown away then.

    Thanks for the memories.

    Talk about politically incorrect... Do ya think a company could bring out something similar today...?


    I bet there would be protests and botcotts, and maybe even Gooberment intervention...

    Yeah, cuz that Scary Toy Rifle would cause all evil in the world to suddenly quadruple and they would have to pull it from the market for the protection of every being in the galaxy! [/sarcasm]

    Yea, a friend down the road had one we would play with.
    When all the projectiles were lost, he sold it to me and I had a cool Tommy gun.
    (He kept the pistol. The jerk!)

    Man! talk about a walk down memory lane.

    Thanks!
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    I didn't have that one, but growing up in the 50's and early 60's meant that I had a wide variety of toy guns. I even had the Chuck Conners "Rifleman" gun.

    I still have a Hopalong Cassidy watch (no longer works) but I sure wish I had that double six-gun rig...

    Old guy???

    By the time that toy came around I was carrying an M-1 or BAR.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
