    I remember one Christmas, Santa gave me a "Johnny Seven OMA" (One Man Army) and my brother a "Defender Dan" (toy belt fed machine gun that shot real plastic bullets). We spent most of Christmas morning involved in War Games.

    I also remember the Monkey (sp) guns and Man from U.N.C.L.E. guns.

    I also think Mattel made revolvers that shot plastic bullets "powered" by "Greenie Stickem Caps".

    Single Action Army cap gun.

    And one of these when I got a bit older...sans the orange muzzle device.

    A tec 9 electric water pistol. Did not work so well but the fact that the magazine was the water resovoire was awesome. It was in the late 80s I think the packaging had Rambo on it. It looked very real exact dimensions as the real ones exept it was all plastic.

    two of them actually, one was a very realisitc and heavy 1911 that shot airsoft, and then my electronic survival shot. that thing was awesome, you get shot by your buddies and it beat you in the head with a little sensor.

    I never had a BB gun (my friends had plenty), but my favorite toy gun that I owned was a bolt action rifle that was made out of real wood and metal. When you opened the bolt it had a spring loaded round in it.

    I had this awesome M16. It was around the first gulf war time and the thing was painted desert camo. Had a grenade launcher also. When you pulled the trigger it made firing sounds, and when you pressed another button on the side it made the sounds of the launcher firing.

    That was about the time all the stores really stopped selling good toy guns.

    You hit it perfectly on the nail for me. Those were the coolest things. Had several of them.

    I had an old what I assume was a WWII replica one kinda like that also. It was one of those cap guns that used the paper strip caps.

    This double barrel shotgun that broke down right and that cocked the air chambers. BOOM! and if you plugged the barrels with dirt/mud you had a working shotgun :thumbsup:

    Mine would have to be a full size plastic M60 that had a little plastic 10 round belt that would feed through it. It was desert camo as well. I think it was a few years before desert shield. I was not allowed toy guns in my house. It was my buddies. I always called it hehe.

    That's the first thing that popped in my head when I saw this thread. Hours of fun- also good for cat and/or dog ambushes. Dog loved it- kitty not so much. :supergrin:

    That's a trip down memory lane. I had one of those myself.
