In keeping with the current trend of refusing to accept self responsibility for absolutely anything, I feel the need to make the following statement.

It's not my fault that I turned out tacticool. I place the blame squarely on Topper for inventing the first mall ninja toy, the Johnny Seven. I was (semi) normal before that.

Yeah... I had that, the 'Shootin' Shell' Fanner 50 & Winchester and the Tommy Burst...
as well as the Monkey Division toys from 1963.

How about this multi-Tasker of a gun?!?!? :D


And don't forget THIS Tacticool stuff from the 'Zero M' collection!!

Man, makes ya wish you could turn back the clock and tell yourself to hold onto stuff like that. Remember when cap guns were realistic? I had a few that the only way you could tell the difference was that the grips were wood grain plastic. I have started to buy two of some of my toys, one to unbox for my own person and the other NIB for my son some day.

I have the Hubley Riflrman cap rifle that my grandmother gave me for my 8th birthday (I'm almost 60). It's THE MOST IMPORTANT gun in my collection.

Yeah, I figured there would be a few more people who liked these old toys.

What was awesome at the time is a friend's cat died and he wanted to give it a 21 gun salute. (We were just kids, remember.) So....I broke out my Johnny Seven and fired everything off three times. If the dearly departed cat was half as impressed as my friends then he was well pleased with his sendoff.

Yes I did. I think I lost him on the roof of my house.

He was always too daring and now he's gone forever <sniff>... [my action figure, that is]

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

You're quite welcome. I really don't know what got me thinking about my Johnny Seven but it was my favorite toy of all time.

New, used, or used up? I remember cringing when I saw this for the first time. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYGGCVE2lKY[/ame] I have no idea how he lived as long as he did with all the accumulated damage he did to his body.

Brand new. Honda 90. Evel got his start in Moses Lake, WA. Made his first "public stunt" jump there. He owned the Moses Lake Honda dealership in the mid 60s. I was 12 at the time.

My first bicycle was fashoned after Evil's bike, man I loved that thing. Had a fake gas tank and everything. That thing was big, heavy, slow, and i couldn't jump it very far, but it kept a smile on my face.
