I really wish I knew what happened to them.
Some toystores that sell "vintage" stuff have them. Along with the old style paper rolls of caps.
We used to smash a couple rolls at a time .....if you used the right rock you could get a nice bang

Sure mine was destroyed like most things I had as a kid.
Got the bright idea to stick a bottle rocket down the barrel and shoot it at my brother one day. Not sure which hurt worse the powder burned fingers of the bottle rocket leaving the barrel or my ass after grandma wore it out with the double razor strap. Guess that is another sign of the changing times.

Ditto!! And the belt and the hand and several other thing that I won't mention in deference to my parents.

I wish I hadn't taken the punishment that I did, but it did end up disciplining me and my brothers too. Not the whoopin's they took, but the whoopin's I got, and I wasn't the oldest.

One last thought, banishing the Ten Commandments (the cornerstone of all Western law) from public display is a true sign of our "Let's just let everybody do whatever the hell they want" times!

That is except defend themselves from evil.

Dad's smooth faced Estwing framing hammer and the sidewalk was quite effective at setting off a whole roll of caps at once.

My Dad made a cat o' nine tails out of his WWII army belt and I had quite a few experiences with it when I was 8 to 10 years old. No regrets, wish he was still with us.

Received the first ever "Self Defense" catalogue from Cabela's.

I've been a customer for over 30 years, 2013 is the first time they have ever published an "SD" catalogue.
