Poundland do them, can't comment on the quality but they're in amongst the fishing gear.

LOL that brings back memories, I had one of them until my dad found it and binned it.

Mind I was terrorising the estate, whacking peeps in the arse with it, until they found out it was me, happy days.

We used to use these lethal things with it.

Black window, that brings back some memories, bought 1st one from the gun shop, sude hill, Manchester (not sure if still there?). Had that wrist brace thingy, also purchased 250 10mm ball bearings with it, oh the fun I had :)

I then upgraded to one with stronger 'rubber band' bits and had a sight, i think it had a picture of a rat with a target on the box.

Let's move before they raise the parking rate.
i had one of these

And probably had umpteen smashed thumbnails to prove it :)

I had a few of these bad boys, and still have my Marksman.

Mine is a lot older & more robust than this one, but you can't argue with £6.

The last time I fired it out was about 6 years ago.
I bought a stack of ball-bearings from Wonderland models in Edinburgh, and had a competition shooting cans off posts with my kids.
The eldest one was a natural...the little sod beat me :(

kids don't know what going out is these days, if they don't have a computer or games console, or Even a mobile they are lost :)

i have to agree like you can't beat the black widow, used to walk down to he rail way line and steal the "pig iron" small balls of slag....not that kind of slag but them small balls of iron that they used on the rail way line down the valley, then we'd fire them at the street lights, some time's if they'd been lit for a few hours they'd explode and set fire to the top of the lamp....all hypothetically speaking of course....then there was the time on chowdene Bank when we shot a window out and it apparently hit there 14" black and white CRT .TV they owned brand new from TANDY...muhaha....., still got the scars on me legs of falling over in the dene when we legged it, *ahem* when the hypothetical people ran shall i say....

So yeah, black widow for the win!
