    I actually had a machine gun similar to that. As I remember, mine had a wind up key. It would shoot a whole roll of caps with one winding.

    My goodness, I haven't thought about that in years

    I don't remember those adds but ones like them. I also remember office visits to our doctors, he would light up a Pall Mall during an exam.
    Must be he didn't see the commercial about doctors liking Camels...

    I had one of those revolvers that shot plastic bullets when I was 10. I left it over my Grandmother's house, and when my cousin visited her, he saw it and asked her why she had a 38 in the house.

    As I recall....when Hanna-Barbera created "The Flintstones"...it was DESIGNED to be "an adult-oriented cartoon"...ie., Wilma having a baby, etc. -- subject matter "kid's" cartoons would not address....
    I'd forgotten about ol' Fred's "nasty habit"....
    Interesting that, even back in the Stone Age....Fred and Wilma (and Betty and Barney) had fights...but their marriages never went "on the rocks", as it were.....

    Ok there has to be a place to find that tommy gun setup. Now that is awesome!
