stardagger "I`ll have to send this to my European friends they will laugh heartily!"
I love how you act how Europe is so much better then America there are many wonderful things that have come from that continent like; my family, guinness,creme brulee, daVinci,and the holocaust, the Berlin Wall, not being able to write the letter w in Turkiye, race riots in France, limiting religious freedom in Switzerland,Kosova was tight,and all my friend from Eesti said it was great there. So show a little pride and make where you live better and so things arent the best here but no reason to hang dirty laundry. God bless merry christmas and go fu(k yourself.

Nice. Those cheap a$$ guns never lasted very long! We used to do the same thing. Sit there and pop the caps on the sidewalk with a rock. It seems almost caveman-like compared to the toys kids have access to today, but damn if I didn`t have a great time.

"Funny thing how people think realistic toy guns promote violence. I always had toy guns"

Me too! My favorite were cap guns, tho. I still can remember that awesome smell!!! And when the gun broke (which was usually within a day) you just sat on the steps all day popping caps with a rock. Ahhhh good times. :-)

Why exactly do you live in the U.S. if you dislike it so much.

That video commercial was awesome! It reminded me of my childhood, watching "The Rat Patrol," and going out to play war. Funny thing how people think realistic toy guns promote violence. I always had toy guns. I joined the military when I was 19 and had to train with the M-16. I was a terrible shot. I hit 3 out of 24 targets! I haven`t shot a weapon since Boot Camp and have no intention of ever doing so.

Good times, Good times, But I remember the cap pistol part would abrade your trigger finger something awful. And all the loose parts where gone the 1st time you`d play with it. Mom was vacuuming up those bullets for decades.

The creepiest thing in this picture is definitely the mom. As other commenters have said, she looks like a man with a wig, and she has cankles. O_o

This pic was a tad before my time.
When I was a kid though, our babysitter got in trouble when he shot my brothers BB gun. He was aiming at a can on the top of our fence, and ended up breaking someones window.
Childhood win.

Back when men were men, women were women, and Uncle Jerry still lived in the basement. That was the AMERCIAN way. Hiding your problems, shushing the children, and abuse. Good old American Family abuse.

ZOMG! I had one of those! In 1966 though (I was 3)
My mother made it `disappear` in just a few days, I wonder why... it`s probably worth a bundle now, came with a helmet too!
