Right after watching Bonanza...going out in the yard and mag dumping (roll dump) on the dog, then shoving my nose in the side compartment of my shiny six shooter....aaaaaahhhhhThose red paper-roll cap guns were such a big part of my childhood that I can easily conjure up the smell of them in my head. So many memories.
Meeee toooooo! Wow! Just reading that post and I could immediately remember the smell of those once again, after all these years! Those were such good days back then.Those red paper-roll cap guns were such a big part of my childhood that I can easily conjure up the smell of them in my head. So many memories.
1977I am am just guessing because I hadn't started to school yet when my dad started taking me. Which would mean it was probably 1965 or 66. I remember he let me carry my grandfather's single shot 22 and it was longer than I was tall. I still have that gun. The ejector and firing pin are completely worn down now. My grandfather had it when he was a kid and he was born in 1895. My grandfather is long gone and lost my dad about 3 years.
But that rifle brings back years of memories
