"Remember these?"

From Knuckledraggin My Life Away:

"Man, those were fun – load it up with 2 caps, then sneak up on my uncle and fire it at the back of his head as hard as I could and then run like hell to delay the ass-whipping that was sure to come.

"Good times, man. Good times." 

I used to take a roll of caps and hit it with a brick on the concrete sidewalk.  BOOM!  But then all my caps were gone.  :(

We used a hammer!

No, I never saw these. We had little guns that you threaded the roll of caps into. Even as a kid, my interest in guns was minimal.

OH ya. They were great.

Just purchased on on ebay for $6.28 including shipping.

Can you still get caps? When I think of it now, selling/giving gunpowder to children seemed absolutely normal back then.

Beejay, I like the hammer. Wonder why I never thought of it? Perhaps it was the abundance of bricks and lack of hammers that kept me in the "stone ages."
