I was cleaning out the attic and ran accross these:



The MP5 is a battery opperated watergun. I had to paint the orange back then so I would not stand out in the woods near home during wargames with the kids in the neighborhood . I droped a couple of batteries but it does not work.


I found some GI JOE's too!



I remember when walmart has an entire isle of toy guns. Now all they have are "weatern style" guns. Guess I will hang on to these for my son to play with.

ETA: My wife wants me to throw them out!

I had the Tec-9 that was a water pistol. Mag was the reservoir (dropped just like a real one) and it ran on double A's. Damn, that was a SERIOUSLY fun toy!

Yup, me and my friends all had those battery powered water guns. I think the big brand was Entertec (sp?). The commercial song went "The look, the feel, the sound, so real ....Entertec".

No longer PC by a long shot.

I had the UZI and the Colt Commando waterguns.
Seriously cool stuff.

I had a tec-9 that looked like that and fired scale yellow rubber bullets. My favorite toy gun as a kid was this tommygun with a removeable stock that fired those caps that were on a plastic string and you could link together.

My GI Joe was a lot bigger than your GI Joes.But, my water guns were nowhere near that high tech.

I had a tec9 cap gun, used the plastic strips of caps
and I think that joe in the middle has a 9mm AR

Is that the Uzi that has smoke come from the barrel. My late son had one of those.

I had the SP89, an M9, and the UZI. One of the kids in a neighborhood I used to play in had the RPG launcher..bad ass! Look what I found- http://youtube.com/watch?v=99UPQEFSGVQ

I was going to say the same thing. Fun toy!

Do they make noise? I think I remember those as a kid.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 4:27:04 PM EST
The 2 tec 9's made a rattle tht sounded somewhat like automatic fire - they are long since worn out. The UZI was fed by red caps in a straight line that did blow smoke from the barrel.

That is a 9mm AR! That was always my favorite GI Joe gun when I was growing up.

It's sad that I can identify which of those guns and accessories went with which Joes/Cobras.

Me three!

Is that what yours are?
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 4:49:46 PM EST
No, I do remember those with the yellow projectiles though.

o shit dawg, you got da Tec! Go post it on the gangsta forums, now!

And, hey, post the Joes too...everyone on that forum is probably too young to remember when they were around, heh.

I had a battery-powered Uzi watergun but I broke it, water got into the electronic portion or something. And I had the left and middle of the two Joes, but not the guy on the right. The middle guy does indeed have a 9mm AR carbine.

I also had a M-16. I remember taking a papertowel roll, painting it black, and securing it underneath the handguards with black duct tape to look like Arnold's rifle in Predator.

Good times.

I also had the Tec-9 water pistol. I also had some strange AK Hybrid watergun. I also had a green plastic pump-action M4 water rifle. If I was anywhere near my parents' place I'd dig them out for pics, but alas those cool relics last saw battle many moons ago.

I won't even get started on cap guns.

those are some cool toys.

Man, I wish I had water guns that cool when I was a kid. My only realistic water pistol got taken away by my mom. Beyond that, I had to make do with a Super Soaker 50 (I loved that thing) and a eye-destroyingly-bright yellow and orange AK-47 that fired by pulling back on the front handgrip instead of pulling the trigger. It only squirted a puny amount of water for a distance of maybe three feet before one of the neighborhood kids accidentally broke it.

That is awesome - can you imagine them trying to play that commercial today? Our country is way too PC these days. Sad really.

Ah the good old days.

When toys were made of metal and had small peices you could choke on....

I had a battery powered UZI water pistol, full auto, removable mag, all black-no orange tipped barrel.

That sucker had a range of about 30 feet and was fast with fresh batteries.

The little motor quit working.

I recall seeing a 1:1 scale, all black MP5 with suppressor, retractable stock, etc.. in a toy store once. It was not the spring loaded version with removable suppressor, it was different and much nicer than that and had no orange parts. It was the most realistic MP5 I ever saw until airsoft came along.

This was back in the early 80's too.
