Saturday Evening Post: Mattel Shootin’ Shell 45s!

A blast (no pun intended) from the past, from back in the day, when it was socially acceptable to be a kid that liked cool toys, guns, and things that make loud noises. Sadly, toys like these (and the commercials that sell them) have largely suffered the same politically correct fate that befell the tobacco industry. (Disclosure: I’m not a smoker – never have been. And I hate cigarette smoke. But it’s a great analogy.) Enjoy.
