I was at work today and my long time friend (we worked at Pizza Hut together in High School, we were roomates and he graduated High School with my Wife.) who has worked almost as long as I have with me at the HVAC company I work for was throwing out some stuff in our work dumpster his daughter had from a room clean up.



Found this purple disc :eek: in the mess....Woaaaah I remember the good times we had with those at our apartment. We had about 10 or more guns, lots of disc and beer inside of us. It was a huge disc war party there for a while. We just go bored one day and went looking for the guns...FOUND THEM!!



Well that got Dave my bench mate laughing from memories he had with his roomate shooting him with these and then getting back at him. lol
Dave took a picture of the disc and E-Mailed it to his friend. He started to laugh and said his friend was having a bad day but, not now. The power of the disc. hahahahaahahahahaha:lol:

I just got done making a mold of these 10 red disc from another gun made by who ever bought the rights to this. This orange gun bites the big one (no power and very CHEAP QUALITY) but, the disc work great in the original gun. You can see the little nub that is from breaking off the tree.


I have one of these good original guns open that works and two MIP that have been in storage for many years. :)



I had one of these guns and lots of extra Ammo as a kid. I used to line up my army men on my Dads recliner and foot extention and shoot them down in the livingroom. Lots of fun!!

Well time to go downstairs and see how the mold came out. Will post pictures in a bit after casting some up. Hope the mold came out good.

Bob...sHOT THROUgh thE HEARt and YoUr to BlAMe, You GIVe loVE a Bad naME...zilla

I forgot about those! I had some "Star Trek" ones including a rifle if I remember correctly. Man I wish I could find some for me and my boy to play with. Water pistols are ok outside in the summer, not so much fun outside in the winter and Mama no let us play in the house...

As a kid I never had a disc gun. I guess they weren't around at the time at least not overhere. What we had where guns that were firing silver painted pea size clay pelets.
But instead of using those "safety" bullets, far too expensive, we were using dried peas. Cheap and cheerfull. Unthinkable nowadays, far too dangerous. Come to think of it, nobody ever got actually hurt or wounded. It was a big step up from shooting peas through plastic tubes at each other. And a far cry from blowing small pellets made up of chewed up paper through straws. Thats what I call an arms race.

But lets face it todays kids are much safer today as a computer doesn't shoot dried peas at them or even worse little plastic discs. They only get arthritis in their firing thumbs. So lets all pray and thank Silicon Valley. Don't even think I'm opposed to computers , I started very early with that stuff (Sinclair z80) and I am still to a certain extent hooked. Oh god, I'm an addict. How shall I explain this to my mom.

Fun times!

Our son Fletcher had some fun shooting some disc into a hat.
This Weekend he (we) will be shooting at the green army men and knocking them down. Blamo baby!

I had a pair of those disk guns as a kid and used to engage in trench warfare with the green army men. We'd set up opposing armies and use books, shoes, and other toys and bedroom items as defensive barriers to semi shield the army guys from the other side. You had to expose at least part of the army man as a target. Once everything was staged on both defensive sides and some level of fairness determined we'd blast away at each others defenses and knock out the enemy. Last side with a man standing won the battle. It was fun until someone would determine that the sharpshooting was too difficult and lob a 1000 lb bomb (like a shoe) to knock out an overly hardened target. We had several variations of army battles involving the green army men, with a few cowboys and indians thrown in for good measure, and with various weapon systems besides the disk guns. They were fun - until the last disk was lost.

Jarts

I have three sets of lawn darts, Jarts being the one everyone wants to possess.
and, I remember that "balloon" stuff, we used to try to out do each other in size of balloon.
that might answer some long lingering questions regarding my mental health?
LOL

We used to play Jarts, and someone had to put a foot in the ring and we threw at the foot, of course the "real" man never moved his foot. Winner was the one in the ring closest to the foot, if the guy did not move out of the ring and the jart stuck then the
"foot" team got the point. One guy got a hole in his shoe to prove his ability to tough it out, Luckily it went between the toes.

Bubble plastic, those were the days, Yeah I am sure we never inhaled any fumes from that setup.

If you look on E-bay there is a tracer gun in the package $129, Star Trek version, killed many a good army men in my day with one of these beauties. Too bad the new version uses a foam disk for ammo and the guns are very cheesy, I looked last night at our local variety store.

or...put some metal "rebar" in the discs when you cast them? OR put neodymium magnets in them and they will stick to any metal objects you hit!

I was 7 and my sister 9 as we threw the Jarts straight UP as high as we could make them go.
Mother trashed them after my father pulled one out of the top of my foot.:rolleyes: Here is the irony.
I was mad at my MOTHER!
I really did LOVE those Jarts.

Whats not to love, hey? They were missiles! They had fins!
They were pointy and they were made to THROW! :D

Oh man, we had jarts too. Seems like I remember that if you hit the right kind of rocks they'd throw sparks. For some reason they disappeared about the time I was 13 or 14. One day we were laying out glass bottles and jars for targets... I know we found some more jars, but the jarts just vanished. Go figure.
