    Sticks and home made rocks...we weren't from the rich side of the railroad tracks where they had them fancy store bought rocks.

    You know at the end of the day Red Ryder or not, I played more with sticks and rocks than anything else. Toys, especially lately, limit the kids imagination. Rocks and sticks could be anything.

    Tx, I agree! When I was a kid (many years ago) going in the house was a punishment and was never done unless the street light came on in the summer. Now days you can't make kids get outside, without fear of charges being brought for child abuse or neglect or worry someone will abduct a child. A/C, video games, IT, have changed but not bettered our society.

    ...and I remember that those sticks we used to play with would become mamas little instruments of terror if we didn't behave;)

    I had a light flash and a whistle, same concept though.

    I never got whipped with a switch, but I got a belt more than once.

    You can never go back, but it was fun while it lasted.

    I had a Red Ryder BB gun like that too. Plus a c02 tank powered semi-auto pistol and a c02 powered rifle.

    My brother and I used to shoot soda cans all day long in the summer.

    But my favorite childhood toy was a nitro (gas) powered Traxxas RC stadium truck when I was in middle school.

    Similar to this one -
