LordJim: Yeah, they were the 'super-soakers' of their day. Battery powered and fast squirting.

Hell, you should have seen the ads that showed during Saturday morning cartoons in the 60s! Daisy and Mattel had little kids shooting it out with all manner of weaponry, much of it set in the "old west." One little kid could draw and empty his Colt Peacemaker and twirl it back into the holster like a pro. Most Mattel stuff had little firing plastic bullets so you could fan off six shots at your pal to the crack of Greenie Stick-em Caps. You could drop someone holding a gun on you if you had the Bat Masterson Derringer belt buckle that opened and snapped off a pill if you pushed your stomach out a bit. From the future we had Johnny 7 OMA: the One Man Army gun, with seven ways to (supposedly) kill the enemy.
I can still remember this crap because we must have seen every ad they made at least 50 times!

I had the Ak centerfire, took some ice maker tube my old man had in the garage hooked it too the feed hose they had for the VERY small clip put the other end in a 3 liter bottle full of water. Connected speaker wire to the terminals which once housed 4 AA batteries but connected the ends to a 6 volt flashlight box battery. threw the battery and the bottle in a back pack , man I was a little bad ass in a water fight :). Till super soakers came out :( fun times. Thanks for the post!, good memories.

HG: 'Zero Tolerance' omits any common sense at all, nothing is judged on a case by case basis anymore and that's just idiotic.

Instead of using common sense and turning minor things into 'teachable moments' they come down hard on everything, even those that are ridiculously easy to judge.

McGovern, they would definitely get in trouble. When I was in 5th grade back in 1999 me and a friend got in trouble for playing with bright red, see through water pistols. They wanted to suspend us. The thing was that we bought them for 50 cents from our teacher who was raising money for a field trip.

My father taught me how to shoot a .22 when I was five years old. When I was ten he bought me my own for my birthday and when I was eleven I was allowed to go hunting by myself. (Woodchucks and squirrels.) I had a Matel M-16 toy at 9 and that was at the height of the Viet Nam War. 1968. Hell, we all thought we were gonna grow up and go to Nam back then, they had the draft.

However take the same thing and make it bright green and orange and you have a super soaker and nobody has a problem with it.


Oh no if a kid brought that to school now they'd get into trouble.

"HG: part of the fun with any toy is that they look like the real thing."

To an extent I agree. However there were a bunch of instances of cops shooting kids because they thought the gun was real. That is why all gun tips have to be painted orange now.

"But it's to the point of being ridiculous now."

I agree. At the same time if you are going to have a "zero tolerance" policy about guns then you have to have a zero tolerance policy. It is easy to draw that line. It is a lot harder to draw it anywhere else. Is making a poptart into a gun ok? Then what about making a gun out of clay in art class? Well what about pretending to shoot your classmates with that clay gun? What about drawing a picture of yourself shooting the teacher with an AR15? Where do you draw the line?

It's really not that bad. And not terribly different from a super soaker commercial you'd see today. Just that this was more directly inspired by Rambo.

They banned the Megatron Transformers toy, in 2007, because it looked like a gun.

But it's to the point of being ridiculous now. They disciplined a kid recently because he ate a poptart into the shape of a gun and the school freaked out over it.

I had something like this that was orange and the clip leaked water all over you when you ran with it.

"their panties in a twist over toys like these"

Because from a distance they look like real guns. Yes. That is not a good idea. However take the same thing and make it bright green and orange and you have a super soaker and nobody has a problem with it.

The 80's was fun being a kid, virtually no one got their panties in a twist over toys like these.
