I hope my kids will someday know the joy of shooting little plastic discs at their siblings heads.

Can you still get those?  I loved those things!

Mom hated them rattling around in the vacuum cleaner.

I haven't seen them in years.  We used to cut the discs to make serrated edges and what not.

Those things were so fun! I had forgotten all about them!

 I remember when ALL of my toys were either toy guns or had to do with war.

I had a cat that would fetch those fucking things.

I always wanted to make one that would shoot pennys when I was a kid now I want to make one that shoots bar coasters

when i was in grade school, my friend bought me one of these with a ton of discs. he brought it on the bus and gave it to me. this was probably 1990-1991.
you would have thought that i brought a fucking machine gun to school. apparently the principal found out about this and it turned into some fucking absolute catastrophe.

my parents were called and they flipped out because the school was flipping out. it was the most irrational behavior i've ever seen over a plastic disc shooting toy.

they tried to make me write some essay on how these things were "so dangerous" and "terrible". i was like what are you even talking about, they shoot lightweight plastic discs at like 10-20fps. i didn't do it.

then i was told that i could sharpen the edges of pennies and shoot them and it would kill someone. which then prompted me to prove that the plastic toy was mechanically incapable of performing such a feat by loading pennies in it. it just jammed up and had nowhere near enough spring tension to throw a penny even if it did load properly.

it was a cluster fuck all around and i went to private (catholic) school. i think that this is one of the reasons i own as many guns as i do. irrational fear drives me insane and i know that owning these guns makes some moron cry themselves to sleep at night.

had i not been a straight A student and skipped a grade, i would have most definitely been expelled for having a plastic disc shooting toy. thanks you fucking liberal cocksuckers.

Aw man, I loved those things.

Every time I go into a dollar store I check out the toy section for one.

No way!  I turned mine in when the local police did a yard dart buy back to get them off the streets.

Tagged, so that my son may know the fun of Jarts.  Gotta start sorting out the fun stuff for him now, he may come earlier than expected.  Little bit of Preeclampsia, they're running tests to see if they want to induce now or wait...

Hope everything goes well with the delivery.



Those jarts are like $75 per dart for the higher grade stuff.

It'll either be home and on bed rest, and try to get her to 37 weeks, or induce today.

$75??!!???  Must be some high end jarts indeed.  I can't get to the site from work, will take a look at home.

My older brother shot me with ours once and the disc stuck under my eyeball between my eyelid and the eyeball.  He was standing on our stairs and I was sitting on the couch watching t.v., I'll never forget that.

Ah I fucking loved those things. That and throwing the AOL disc's around.

I used to find those little disks all over the house for years after the guns broke.
Link Posted: 7/20/2010 8:32:55 PM EDT
I had a Gold colored one and that sucker lasted quite some time!!!!



Had it for years!!!!



Link Posted: 7/20/2010 8:36:07 PM EDT
My brother and I used to wage non-stop war with those.  A little sanding of the edges of the disks FTW

That's a fine example of an off the cuff rant right there.

 



FWIW in the early 80s me and my friends would hunt each other with those, during school.

Had more than one of those. Thanks for the memory.

I got in SO much trouble with those things when I was a kid. In high school we did split one in half with a razor blade, upgrade the spring and reglued it. Didnt last long but would stick pennies in sheet rock.



I found some at a toystore a while back and bought a pair, they are around here somewhere still in the package.
Link Posted: 7/20/2010 8:44:19 PM EDT
We had hours and hours of wars with those as kids. They are badass

Yup!!!  Got my ass warmed up with a section of Hot Wheels track a time or two for the same offense. I damn near chipped my great uncles front tooth by shooting him with a penny!

Oh man, those and the dart guns that took the removable mags, can't tell you how many epic battles were staged with those
Link Posted: 7/20/2010 9:20:14 PM EDT
I played with those when I was a kid.  That was back when some of our toy guns were almost indistinguishable from real guns at a distance.
Link Posted: 7/20/2010 9:22:00 PM EDT
That was my favorite weapon

I saw something similar and bought it for my daughter.

Upon opening the package I found out it shot foam discs

Truly a disappointing moment for me.
Link Posted: 7/20/2010 9:27:47 PM EDT
I had a pretty steady collection of those and cap guns too. And to think I would roam around my neighborhood trading shots with the rest of the kids on the block.

I'd probably get 911'ed today...


Link Posted: 7/21/2010 1:39:58 AM EDT
One of the best gun toys I ever had!  If you  held it at an angle, the discs would go AROUND CORNERS!

Made a bandolier with 35mm film cans (something else todays kids won't get to see), rubber bands, and an old belt.  Worked GREAT!  Looked like Chewbacca's bowcaster rig.

Those, and cap guns.  And the Cap Grenade!

Todays kids get screwed.  Some of the Army games we played as kids went all day, between the making of the forts, and then the stalking of the enemies...sigh.

Had a wooden and metal Springfield toy that actually had a cycling bolt, and a clicking trigger.  You couldn't break that thing to save your life!

 Get set for fierce competition with this pair of foam disk  shooters.
Two plastic shooters, one red and one blue, have black trim  and sleek
bodies with guns mounted on top. Insert two AA batteries (not  included)
into each gun and slide the switch to the "on" position to  hear the
shooter's engine whir. Load a stack of the 50 included foam  disks into
the ammunition tube, press the trigger, and watch the disks  fly forward
10 to 20 feet. Paper targets can be cut from the carton for  target
practice. One caution––foam disks that are bent or misshapen  tend not
to fire, or become lodged inside the gun. There is very little  force
behind the disks, so they're unlikely to hurt or damage  unintended
targets
, even from close range. ––Tami Horiuchi
