Reply bontai Joe says: May 25, 2015 at 21:49 My peers and I played that often, in between cops & robbers and re-inacting World War II European theater. Kids would probably be jailed or at least pulled from their parents care for playing such games today. Reply Sam H says: May 22, 2015 at 18:31 Shhhh. Don’t tell the libs that boys are having fun. Reply Paul53 says: May 22, 2015 at 18:31 If only they had let some girls play, we wouldn’t have to put up with Shannon Watts and her Momtroopers Against Guns now. Reply Phil LA says: May 22, 2015 at 19:25 The girls were playing: they played lawyers, explorers, scientists, athletes and laborers. Nah, they always chose to play house. Nature. Reply John L. says: May 22, 2015 at 18:34 Remind me again where we left the Delorean…? Reply Virginia Gunner says: May 22, 2015 at 18:37 Gang: ” We know you are in the house, Buckwheat! Come on out with your hands up!” Buckwheat: “O’tay!” Reply Jay-El says: May 22, 2015 at 18:37 The boys were having too much fun to notice the strange man from Everytown counting each pop of a cap pistol and marking it on his clipboard. Reply Charles5 says: May 22, 2015 at 18:40 (Voice of Reporter) “State Investigators are saying that several police officers have been injured by friendly fire when a no-knock raid of a local man suspected of being late on his auto registration renewal went bad. Initial reports indicate that two separate teams were attempting to surround the house and rounded the same corner coming from opposite directions and mistook each other for the homeowner and opened fire. A contributing factor appears to be the lack of safeties on the .9 mm Glock revolvers the SWAT team was carrying at the time. The next door neighbor’s dog was killed in the crossfire. A spokesman for the police department declined comment.” Reply AW1Ed says: May 23, 2015 at 09:50 You sure that isn’t a 90 mm Glock, Charles5? Reply Jay-El says: May 22, 2015 at 18:41 Many years before the Internet was invented, young Larry, Dirk and Ralph would meet every afternoon in the schoolyard to face off against Leghorn, Zimmerman and the Farago kid. Reply Ralph says: May 22, 2015 at 19:21 And we always won. Reply Doug McNeil says: May 22, 2015 at 18:45 “Let’s play cops and motorcycle gangs.” Reply the ruester says: May 22, 2015 at 18:49 “But…but…I want to be the robber that everybody riots for!” “Wait your turn, or we’ll make you be George Zimmerman!” Reply MacBeth 51 says: May 22, 2015 at 18:49 Troop 19 of East Cooterville just before being informed their charter was pulled by BSA national leadership Reply Taylor TX says: May 22, 2015 at 19:33 LMAO @ Cooterville, I bet its a nice place.

Reply Phil LA says: May 22, 2015 at 19:22 Glutens vs Twitters Reply Chris says: May 22, 2015 at 19:25 As usual, the liberals in the black jackets are depending on others for protection. Reply Ralph says: May 22, 2015 at 19:31 Photographic proof that before Farago came on the scene, kids could practice poor trigger discipline to their hearts’ content. Reply Jeff the Griz says: May 22, 2015 at 19:34 “I shot you first” “No, I shot you first!”, the days before paintball where everyone was Hahn Solo!

Enjoy no longer being in school. Reply AndyNC says: May 22, 2015 at 20:38 I think “School Shooters: 1942” is perfect as is. Reply JWM says: May 22, 2015 at 21:23 That kid on the right in the dark jacket. Must be shannons daddy. Fake pistols. He knows they’re fake and he’s still ducking and hiding behind the little kid. Remove Darwin from the equation and you wind up with shannon. Reply Aaron Houck says: May 22, 2015 at 22:22 “Stick them up, Sucka!! Hand over the milk money NOW!” Reply Former Water Walker says: May 22, 2015 at 22:30 Not trying to win but this looked an awful lot like my neighborhood as a kid in the 50’s and early 60’s…man the world sucks now. Reply AndyNC says: May 22, 2015 at 22:59 Kinda looks a lot like mine too, but during the 80’s. The kids all had decent shoes, though. Even the poorer ones. Reply Pieslapper says: May 22, 2015 at 22:53 Hands up, Don’t shoot! Reply Gunr says: May 23, 2015 at 00:07 If we had those new guns that shot around corners, we wouldn’t have to stand out in the open like this! Reply Mikial says: May 23, 2015 at 00:19 Family Tactical Training Day. Reply Wheelsucker says: May 23, 2015 at 01:18 …while both can be effective, hard cover is preferable to using your buddies as meat shields… Reply TheBear says: May 23, 2015 at 02:17 “The boys in overalls were playing combatants. The boys in coats were playing war correspondents.” Reply Mattie Dimes says: May 23, 2015 at 05:01 Now kids can just shoot their friends on Xbox, all while eating snacks and drinking soda from the comfort of their own couch. Nevermind the early onset diabetes, we got meds to manage that. Ain’t technology grand?

Boys would play with cap guns and the Cops wouldnt shoot them for doing so. Reply Craig says: May 23, 2015 at 12:31 Boys, there is no doubt. The Mattel Fanner 50 is a far superior cap to the Nichols Stallion 45. Reply Rusty Chains says: May 23, 2015 at 12:43 Fortunately these out of uniform Boy Scouts had ditched the illegal squirt guns when the Scoutmaster busted them and took away their safe speech and assembly merit badges.

It’s an ambush!” Reply SkyMan77 says: May 23, 2015 at 15:13 Don’t worry Fellas… Ever since Clive got them there glasses He can’t hit the broadside of a barn… Reply Walt says: May 23, 2015 at 20:31 Early forms of the fabled cornershot weapon involved shoving your younger brother out from cover and telling him to shoot. While extremely safe for the operator, high casualties rates of younger siblings in the War Robbers soon lead to a rethink of its design. Reply Jason F says: May 23, 2015 at 21:11 “Let’s play cops and citizens” Reply Andrea says: May 25, 2015 at 08:04 Concerned moms also decry that appears that some of the kids have no protective footgear, too.
