I had one of those --- I loved it. My parents took it away after hearing that kids were blowing out their own eardrums with it. I'm not sure if the eardrum thing was true, but my parents believed it. Really, even at that age, I knew not to point the gun at my ears --- at the jackass neighbor's kid maybe --- but not mine.

Lorne Greene narrating, isn't it?

I love the scene with the kid having the bazooka over a highway. Imagine what would happen today in a situation like that.

Apparently there's a whole series of these where young Kurt goes into a closet to receive orders from Batman.
Ok, really Alfred.

If the Emo/Snowflake parents of today saw that toy they would have the SWAT team on the kid so quick. Hard to be a kid in these times...

William Conrad had the best set of pipes in the 1950s, second only to Paul Frees.

sweet. that thing would be the subject of so many "my crotchfruit was hurt by this when the neighbor kid fired some shards of glass™ out of it at him" lawsuits.

Anyone notice that the targets were structures in a civilian airport? But it was probably a COMMIE civilian airport, so all is well.

I heard he was dead.

And I thought he'd be taller.

I didnt recognize him until the last shot.

If you were a boy with a gun that fired compressed air, wouldn't your first thought be to find projectiles to use with it?

Yes.

I loved Agent Zero stuff.

Had the pocket knife that transformed into a gun. Becuase what's more awesome than a lethal weapon? One that gets lethal-er!

Can you fart into it before you fire? Otherwise useless.

You know what ol' Jack Burton says at time like this?

Duyogurt: Says a lot about our culture, actually.


And what exactly is that? That kids wanted to emulate their hero's, including their fathers and grandfathers who fought in WWII and Korea? Or that little boys want to play war or cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians? Hate to tell you Nancy, that is what young boys do when they are growing up. Unlike today's kids who have no notion of real heros. What is your alternative? Hugging trees and singing?

Meh. We used to get cans of gunpowder from the hardware store and do things that would get us on the No Fly List these days.

We used to have those daisy air guns (not the bb guns) that produced a bunch of noise and blasted out a lots of air. The barrel was about the size of a 12 gauge. When we got one, the first thing we did was take the cap off the end so you could jam the barrel in the dirt to create a plug. The mostly clay GA dirt held together well and fired out like a shotgun slug.

That looked more like Jack Burton to me.

God, I haven't thought about that in years. I had a friend with one of those, and that's exactly what he did, too.
