Here is another great one to watch: I Like Guns – Steve Lee Reply John Fritz says: January 21, 2012 at 16:42 Heh. Good stuff. Did Kevin direct that? Reply Aharon says: January 21, 2012 at 21:54 John, Don’t know who directed. There is a version #2 of ‘I like guns’. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: January 21, 2012 at 20:21 Sure looks like Otis to me. If the kid in the video played with that same gun today, he’d get arrested or shot. Reply Ralph says: January 21, 2012 at 22:20 The “good old days” may have been better than now, but that doesn’t mean that they were all that good. Reply bontai Joe says: January 22, 2012 at 00:42 I remember having the “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” spy briefcase. And thinking about the $7 price tag on the detective set, that was back when minimum wage was $1/hr, so it wasn’t as inexpensive as we might think. Also makes me wonder if that kid got a career in law enforcement as an adult…. or did playing with guns as a kid turn him into a “bad guy”……..one of life’s little mysteries Reply Tom says: January 22, 2012 at 17:08 Gee.. every kid wanted one of those. Few had them though. Reply mikeb302000 says: January 22, 2012 at 05:39 I played with those when I was a kid, and I turned out OK. I’m not sure what went wrong with the rest of you. Reply bontai Joe says: January 24, 2012 at 15:40 Really? I’m a bit surprised to hear that you played with toy guns as a kid. Hmmmmmm…… interesting. Reply 101abn says: January 22, 2012 at 07:43 “The Good Old Days” are right now. (Well, with some exceptions). Reply valentines cards says: January 24, 2012 at 15:36 of course like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.
