All of those era's boy's-toys commercials were great. Johnny Seven. The secret agent pack. On and on. Back when you only GOT one toy a year. . . but it was cool enough and durable enough to last your entire lifetime. (You can find all that stuff on Ebay.)

I still love the shooting arcade with the magnetic gun and the ball bearings in the case.

I don't think those things changed much for the better part of a decade.

A fully-automatic Tommy Gun that fires 10 rounds without reloading!!! Oh, the horror!!!

I suppose this commercial is banned in NY, California, and New Jersey?

Why the 10 round limit?

Were they planting the seeds of magazine capacity back in the 60's?

I had one of these as a kid; had I been more mechanically inclined, I'm sure I could have figured out a way to dismount the gun from the game and wreak havoc with it.

Yep, I had them all. Those plus a dad who also enjoyed firearms instill a great pride in me for all things firearms and the RTKABA.

Boy, how times have changed. It's amazing how we survived such a barbaric period in time. Kids actually played with toy guns? Dear Lord!

I looooved them toys. I had a secret agent attache case with the knife that came out the side and the the gun that fired from it and the Greenie Stick-em Cap "tear gas" bomb for when the bad guys opened it wrong.

I used to read the Sears Christmas catalog from summer until the pages fell apart. My mama said I had every toy gun and every comic book ever made, but she was bad to exaggerate.

I had the tommygun, too.

I went to a police open house when I was about 7 and they had their real ones on display. I told the cop that I had one, too. He took the real one off the rack and handed it to me. It weighed a TON!!

I knew then that mine was just a toy, so I told my father that I needed one like theirs. He said we'd go looking for my birthday. (I got an M-1 carbine, not the tommygun. We bought the M-1 at JC Penney!)

I had a Schofield ring-cap gun. That was cool. Probably 1974 or so. Back when those things were pot metal, not plastic.

Haven't you all seen the gas operated airsoft guns that are out there? I'd rather have one of them. They are a blast to shoot.

Ah, yes...... The Monkey Gun. I didn't have one, but my neighbor did. He also had the 007 gun, it was a carbine, pistol combo if I remember well, and came in a briefcase. Cool.

I remember having a Screaming Mee Mee gun. Not sure who made it. Do you remember Six Finger?

Coming from Down-East Maine, having a couple extra digits
on your hands or feets isn't that uncommon and sometimes comes in handy getting that last pickled egg out of the jar....but makes buying gloves a little tough at times..

..so it took me a while to recall the "Six Finger". Yeah, I know what you're talking about. I never had one but the Clark kids who lived next door had 'em. It's funny how we had toy guns, but most of our "Cops and Robbers", "Cowboys and Indians" or "Germans and GIs" were fought using croquet mallets or our dad's caulking guns as the weapon of choice....

Do they still call a caulking gun a "gun", or is it now an "elastic polymer installation device"??

That's cool, but someone is going to get shot using one of those. Wow.
