No orange tip for us! Realistic looking cap guns and not one of us got shot
@DrSin, I feel like a bunch of people did it was just easier to get away with crimes back then.
@DrSin, as far as i remember there were a couple instances where cops shot children and they had to mandate "fake looking" fake guns after that.
@Guy Fawkes, shut up !!!! Your not suppose to know that !!
@DrSin, hey look, im all for shooting kids but facts is facts
@Guy Fawkes, nothing like firing a couple knuckle children into a sock, then cramming it to the bottom of the hamper and pretending it’s been there for a while
@TheWhiteWolf, and news in other areas of the country and or world wasn’t as easily known as it is now. With the internet you can here about what happens everywhere way easier than having 3 channels of tv and a newspaper
@DrSin, my friends and i got shot with those lol, we had the old orange cap ones, if you take off the orange cap, and fit airsoft bb’s into the chamber, the thing will shoot out bb’s
Oh! So one fourth of july I did the dumbest thing with these. Me and a friend and his dad were setting off fireworks in the coldesac (mostly the dad) he ran out of stuff and went back inside. We stayed out and used smaller fire cracker type stuff until that ran out. We got bored and with nothing left I remembered he had blasting cap ammo. We dug them up from under his nerf gun box and poured out all the ammo dust into a roughly quarter sized pile in the street. We tried lighting it but the wind was just barely strong enough to ruin it so I got another "great idea" (aweful idea) and went into his open garage and grabbed a metal mallet. SMACK! It was so loud I turned away from it and felt chunks of little rocks possibly bounce off my face. I was told it "worked", my eyes were closed, i have no idea. It was hard to hear for a day, but a few months later I realized my ears were picking up the distant highway sound at different volumes. I can still replicate this, i got minor permanent
@Dephenistrator, hearing loss in one ear over it.
Tldr: used a hammer on blasting cap ammo like a dum fuk as a teen and lost some hearing in one ear.
@Dephenistrator, we used to dump out fireworks into Lego things we would build just to see if it would explode. Not to mention the bottle rockets we shot at each other. You think you lost your hearing from that? I used to work on cars and their stereos...once had a system in mine that hit over 150 Db that I listened to on a regular basis. Don't speak about hearing loss when you heard a couple big fireworks go off
@Not him again, first off, it made a bottle rocket sound quiet. Second off, i was right over it. Lastly, i hate loud music, nothing i did could have come close. Nothing. I don't think that's what did it, that is what did it.
@Dephenistrator, well I'm sorry sir, but if a few fireworks blew out your
ear drums, you might be one of those people that complains about everything
@Not him again, or someone who never had their eardrums blown out before. I still have the hearing damage so i don't feel like you can mock me
@Dephenistrator, I'm not mocking anyone, I'm just saying that you dont really get permanent hearing damage from a one time event. If that was the case, I should be deaf into the negatives by now, but I still hear relatively decent
@Not him again, well it's been fifteen years and still the only time I lost hearing. You are missing something
@Dephenistrator, you said at the end "I got minor permanent". From fireworks.... unless you stuck it in your ear before it exploded, I dont know what you mean.
@Not him again, dude, holy shít. I smacked a pile of concentrated blasting cap ammo with a hammer at point blank, and since then my right ear doesn't hear as well as the other. Why do you have to make that complicated? You do know there is gunpowder in those and I don't even know how much we used we just piled a ton of caps we emptied out.
@Dephenistrator, so you used a Ramset hammer? I dont get what you seem to think is so complicated about the fact that one event does not cause permanent hearing damage. It happens over time due to exposure to loud shjt. Maybe you just need to clean out your ear
@Not him again, I don't know who told you that's the only way to get hearing loss, but don't take advice from them anymore.
@Not him again, Noise induced hearing loss
NIHL can be caused by a one-time exposure to an intense “impulse” sound, such as an explosion, or by continuous exposure to loud sounds over an extended period of time, such as noise generated in a woodworking shop.
@Dephenistrator, yeah, maybe from an large explosion very nearby or something like that. But you're saying you smacked a little gunpowder with a hammer. That's about the same as shooting a rifle, so if that event is what caused your hearing loss, then I feel bad for you.
@Not him again, i don't know what kind of pride trigger I set off in you but this isn't up for debate with me so this is finished.
@Dephenistrator, bro... that guy is a little off his rocker, man. You handled this like a champ. Sorry about your hearing!
Sadly I got a bunch more caps but couldn't find the gun anymore...
The smell was the best
I shot actual guns as a kid thank you
I never got the gun, I just had this little metal thing which looked a bit like a mix between a shuttlecock and an arrow. You’d place one of the caps on the tip and then drop it and it would pop the cap
And spend spot if time arguing about who shot who....
Like "I shot you your dead"
"No you didn't"
"Yeah i did i got you"
I hate these kind of memes. Just because you had this toy, doesn’t mean that your dad wasn’t an alcoholic that beat the crap out of your mother and you and your siblings, or that your dad didn’t die when you were young so that your mother had to work two jobs and you got left with your uncle who threatened to push you down stairs and make it look like an accident if you told on him for touching you in bad places
@Mkb617, hmmm, why are all the negative people in this comment male? Did you have some negative male role models growing up?
@RollingInD1ck, nope not at all. With only 2 examples the odds are 1 in 3 that both would be males, so it is not like it is that bad.
@Mkb617, yeah fair call, sorry I didn’t mean to pry or anything I just find little things like that interesting is all
Brother fell asleep with some of these in his pocket and apparently got too warm cause they burned the fvck out of his leg
Reloading these bad boys was always satisfying
THIS IS WHY MOM DOESNT FUCĶNG LOVE YOU
I remember the taste of that stuff. It was the glue of my childhood
Not going to lie I completely forgot about these.
No i didn't
