    You are right, it has two triggers and each shoots one bb at a time. Mine has a wooden stock, did yours? I have not run across another wood stock one in years. The later ones had plastic stocks but even they are hard to ever find anymore. How about the old WHAMMO wooden sling shots that came with a piece of wire that bridged the gap and enabled it to also shoot arrows. Do you remember that?
     
  2. Been there, done that. I loved it. :p The dang thing cut a target in half with one shot. Kicked like a mule though. :p Two bbs would have been easily manageable next to a double barrel 12 gauge with the triggers wired together. The old black powder jobs with the exposed hammers would fire both with two fingers on the trigger. :p
    Don't be like this doofus though:

    You have to hold it tight and to your shoulder. :p

    You still manage to have some great bb guns. They were common and fun when I was little. My mom would always say I was going to put someones eye out,, evidently moms always thought that was the most likely part of someone that would be hit in case of an accident. The lever actions were cool but the pump actions were the most powerful. The wood branch slingshots were ok until some kid let you shoot a Whamo, then you really understood what power a slingshot could have. I found one still on its original card even with extra bands about six years ago on ebay and bought it. Its on a shelf next to an old crystal radio. Today BB guns and slingshots are frowned upon along with many other things. I remember buying a 22 rifle and bullets from the hardware store, all I needed was the money. Funny that there were no crazy people going in schools or church and killing people back then.

    Back then we could pop firecrackers in the backyard, build a fire on the ground or go trick-or-treating in October & not
    worry about some sicko putting something in the candy.

    Vintage toys remind me of those times somehow ! :D

    How old are you? I remember the roomers, that people put razor blades in apples for Trick or Treat. That rumours goes back to the early 50s! as if we needed an excuse to want more candy, and less apples.

    Yes I also remember the razor rumors, I'm 73 years old. Did you fly a Stearmen? I had a couple of 170's back in the seventies.

    Another great find V.C. my favorite all time paint scheme for a Porsche! A friend of mine has the vinyl fonts to reproduce all those stickers for a full size Beck 550 Spyder replica. I really would like to have one, but would settle for yours any day of the week!
     
  12. The Cord of course. :p
     
  13. The Schuco Porsche was an exclusive that came out in 2002 and was only available through Porsche dealers back then. I want to get a 1:18 scale
    diecast version.
