I received this one in my early teens and over 30 years later, my mom still has it. She would keep it for all her grandchildren to play with, most of whom are now full grown. Truth is, I still pick it up and test my aim whenever I visit! The fact that it’s seen so much use over the years is a testimony to its durability. A toy that holds up, works as it should (the gun has been rock solid) and is fun. Every toy company’s dream.

I was cleaning out my parents house after my mother passed away when I found this game packed away in the attick. I got it when I was about six and my father used it to teach me target shooting. I loved this game. My father and I used to have competitions to see who was the best shot. I eventually started to win.
My wife initially wanted me to throw it away when I found it. But I persisted and brought it home. I taught my 3 1/2 year old son how to use it and he is getting very good at it. Yes, the plastic screen is scratched, but I hope my son will have some good memories of competing with me as I have of my dad. Besides, how many kids in this age of video games can say they have something that shoots real targets (unless it is a real gun).

wow! I had one of these in Glasgow Scotland in the early 70s. Now my sister and I both have toddlers we were talking about all the toys we had. I had got my daughter a ficher price wind up radio that played 'raindrops keep falling on my head' from ebay as I remembered having one as a kid. I also had this game and couldn't remember the name! Wow, gott a love those 70s plastic toys!

My cousin used to get all the flash imported toys from the US, this was one of them. After a while the gun would mark the plastic window. The target that looked like a toilet seat was a tricky little sucker indeed.

My mom still has ours! It's a yellow box instead of red. It still works! My kids play with it when they go see gramma. I can't believe I found this. Ha!

oh my god! I have been trying to remember what the name of this toy was FOREVER! My grandparents had one and my sister and cousin and I would fight over who got to play with it. Being the youngest, I always had to wait until the others were bored. I had to play alone and be proud of my own skills. No cheering crowd for me. I loved this thing and played with it for hours in the spare bedroom. I was actually pretty good, if I do say so myself. What an awesome toy!

Man, we didn't get many toys when I was a kiddo, 1 at a time really, This thing and evil Kenevil stunt cycle was the BOMB.
I had another toy I have never seen again, it was a Ford PINTO, a blue pinto, it had a hole in the side where the gas tank was supposed to be, You put a purple key in the hole and cranked it up, then when you pushed a button under the rear bumper it stretched out into a dragster and a Big Block chrome engine rose outta the hood, straight pipes popped out the sides and a driver with full gear popped outta the hatchback and it took off like a rocket. I had Two but the first one was a like a old ford coupe and it got run over the first week I had it. so the pinto went solo for years.
anyone know what it was called?
anyone ever ride a Big wheel green machiene down a 50 MPH San diego hill? LOL WOOOOOOOOO! HOOOOOOOO!!!!! that was the last day I had my green machiene but MAN! I was FLYING!!!!
Long term memory man
