I have the full set with the box at home. It is awesome. I only got i it out for the most serious games of cops and robbers.
I loved that gun. Somehow, I did not grow up to be a sadistic killer or even a hunter. We did establish the good guys and the bad guys and right or wrong when playing. Those lessons stayed with me. I must admit sometimes the “ copper” got shot in an ambush. There wasn’t enough crime in Jackson for the real police to even suspect it was anything other than kids having fun. We would also take the plug from the end of our BB guns so it would make a shotgun sound and roam around the neighborhood with them. Quality toy- thanks for the look back

LOL They'll put a kid in detention now if he points his index finger at someone.

Millennial generation are the most offended people to walk the planet. Jerry Seinfeld says he quit touring college campuses due to hate mail for being offensive. Can you imaging Sanford and son on tv today. They would loose it. Or Archie bunker. Eddie Murphy also says comedy is impossible in today's generation. So yes these would cause one to need a safe space.

What are you blubbering, er, blabbering about now Melvin?

@ 8:02, you are exactly right. "All in the Family" and "Sanford & Son" are two of the greatest sitcoms ever!! There is no way that the characters of Archie Bunker & Fred Sanford would ever be accepted in today's hyper-sensitive audience. At what point did everybody become so uptight?

In the 1950s and 60s we were not yet suffering the full side effects of the 19th Ammendment.

Today we are nearly terminal. Not too much longer before white patriarchy is full disenfranchised with no legal or civil rights.

@ 8:02 & 8:46

Both Sandford and Son and All on the Family were commercial successful pop culture and neither really were ever policially incorrect. They were written to actually mock politically incorrect ideas.

The only truly /pol/itically incorrect website on the Internet was created by a Millenial and is a hive of insightful and offensive content with free and open discussions of topics that Kingfish censors here.

And never forget that the majority of the problems today were compounded on by boomers and Gen X'ers who did nothing to right this sinking ship.

Thanks for the memories, Kingfish. Little boys still instinctively play with toy "guns", even if it's just a stick they pick up. Now where did I put my black face paint?

I'm a 65 year old female and played cops and robbers, Nazis and Americans, and a game with my brothers that we called "fall dead", the purpose of which was to see who could enact the most theatrically dramatic death when "shot" with toy guns. I had my own cap pistol and bugged my mom all the time to buy more rolls of caps for me at the dime store. My brothers also had real guns, starting with shotguns about age 12, which we used to squirrel hunt. We all had BB guns, and my older brother occasionally shot me in the rear end with his. I still have my old BB gun which is useful when stray dogs come into my yard. We made firecracker cannons with sections of lead pipe which shot gravel and small rocks which probably could have killed us if we had been hit. Brothers loved to play with cherry bombs and other heavy duty fireworks. Somehow we all grew up un-maimed, did not become killers, and developed a healthy respect for guns.

What has happened to people these days that kids cannot be allowed to use their imagination and common sense not to hurt each other?

8:01, seriously? I don't know on which planet you live, but if you consider someone pointing their index finger at you as a threat, I feel really sorry for you.

No, I feel sorry for you.

8:02. Everybody got “so uptight” when it became profitable/advantageous to be “offended”....

Trigggggggggggggggeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrddddddddd.

Where's my safe space, comfort dog, teddy bear, and hot cocoa (not coco).

Don't forget the "Fanner 50." https://youtu.be/xio0p4Fsbd8 I had one back in the day.

No one in my family owned guns. I learned marksmanship with Mattel firearms from watching Combat! and Dragnet.

Kyril said...

My boys are teens now but played with toy guns for years, plus Nerf guns. They were constantly shooting each other.

Just reading these comments and has triggered me. I think I’m going to lock myself in the closet with a bunch of guns, some American and rebel flags, and fox news to make me feel safe again. All this talk of millennials has upset my tummy.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
