Default Stuff you remember from your "youth" you can only find on eBay or Amazon nowadays

A few things I remember from when I was younger would be the old handheld hunting and fishing games from radica®. Back then you used to be able to pick them up at mart stores and toy stores for $10-$20. Now you can only find them on eBay and Amazon for $25+. Most of them were the old buckmasters® deer hunting games. Someone on this forum has to remember these games!?

Don't remember the Deer hunting game, but a few of my favorites were Cap Guns, Strombecker 1/32 slot cars, making our own lead solders on the old stove in the basement.

Radica made multiple buckmasters games : 2 pump rifles, a lever rifle, a bolt rifle, 2 bows, a turkey shotgun and a slug gun. They also made a crapload of different fishing games during the same time period. Radica and other companies started making handheld hunting and fishing games in the late 80's or early 90's and ceased production around 2007...ish.

I remember when McDonald's had the milkshake posters on the drive-through window. I grew up in kendallville, Indiana and at our McDonald's, the ink pigment on the chocolate milkshake part of the poster got warped by the sun. For years I thought they had purple milkshakes.

how old are you again? many of us older members even remember a time before there were video games or cell phones, when all phones had cords, when fast food joints were not common in smaller towns, and many other things you the younger generation takes for granted now.

8 track tapes, 45 records. Atari 2600 or the old triangle Atari that had pong, the quick draw game with a holstered gun and a steering wheel and high/low shifter for the racing game.

16. I remember seeing Garth Brooks tapes at Walmart. I remember when ammo wasn't $38+. I remember when Winchester firearms weren't $900+. I remember when a Marlin 30-30 wasn't $480 for the econo model (336a and 336w).
