Mow ’em down with BBs!

Don’t tell Murdoc that this isn’t from a comic book:

Fully Automatic BB Gun

And don’t tell him it doesn’t look like fun.

What’s particularly awesome is the fact that it comes complete with a 21-piece task force of:

  • Infantrymen
  • Tanks
  • Gunners
  • Trucks
  • Cruisers
  • Battleships
  • Jet Planes
  • Bombers
  • Riflemen
  • Spaceships

With an advertised price of $1.00, this was from before Murdoc’s time. But boy oh boy, would I have wanted one.

No kidding. That was then. This is now.

But watch that trigger finger, kid.

Via Hell in a Handbasket.
