This Pistol Gripped Plastic BB Shooter is the original BB shooter-or as we as kids called it "Condom Shooter". It was listed for sale in some of the outdoor magazines in the late 60's and early 70's (what a decade). I think she went for $1.25 or so. Anyway,you can see why we called it a Condom Shooter. It isn't an actual Condom but I'm sure one could be used. Balloons would also serve the purpose. It does a decent job with BB's at close range and even has a little sight. Love these vintage designs. I just want to give out a big thank you to Master Bill Hayes for sending me this for my collection. He knew I really wanted one and he sent it. Class Act this man is for sure. Cool ain't it?

That's the one! I saw that in Outdoor Life in the mid60s and have always wondered how well it worked. I didn't buy one because back then (at age 10 or so) I was a Wham-o flat band specialist and would never use anything else.

That nipple ain't for babies! Can it be shot? (video) Can a replacement nib be found or will a store bought suffice?

Nifty device there. I also would love to see a video of this, I have never seen anything like it (I was not around as of the 60s and 70s).
