    Childhood Toys

    I know there's a thread on this topic already but, this is a bit specific. I've stopped eating cheese. Anyone remember having what we used to call a 'Cowboy Gun' in the 60's, I'm guessing loads of us did but, does anyone remember having one that made a 'ricochet' noise when you fired it? I do, or at least I think I remember I do. Not sure if I really did have one or I dreamed it. I'm doing a spot of filming in the next couple of weeks and want to mention it on camera but, if the things only existed in my head, of course, I don't want to. I'm probably going to look stupid enough without adding more stupidity into the mix.

    All I need to know if this actually existed or have I dreamed it/imagined it.

    Have a trawl through this lot:

    A copy of the patent is in there so it looks like you didn't imagine it!

    Great video but no, mine was a pistol. I did have a Lone Star rifle though (as seen in the link given to me by dodgeman) A lot of white on it with a red band around it. Eeeh, I was spoiled. AND...I had a Johnny Seven O.M.A. Come to think about it, I was more spoiled than I thought I was. And a Dan Dare Space Control Radio Station that 'sent and recieved voice and code up to half a mile'...except it didn't.

    Reading this post made me think... toy guns became un PC 'because they make kids violent'... now the little ****ers go round stabbing and shooting each other at will.
