    Oh, that brings back some cotton candy encrusted memories!

    Cotton candy encrusted memories they surely are. When I was about 12, I was the best BB gun shot in the midwest. I had my own target range! So, when the county fair came to town, and I found the shooting booth, I had found a game that I could surely win. I remember that playing it was very expensive, at 50 cents a throw. And, I remember that I spent almost a years worth of paper route savings before my father took me aside.

    Dad said that there were only 50 BBs in that gun. And, if I added up the diameter of all of those BBs, the distance that they represented would be about enough to make a circle around the red star twice. That’s it. A person would either have to make 50 perfectly placed shots, or rely on the paper tearing out in order to get the complete star to go away. And, I never did. I still have my collection of red star cards saved away somewhere.

    And, as far as I know, the electric clock with the golden motorcycle on the top is still there.

    There’s something else about this game…the inside diameter of the gun’s barrel is slightly larger than that of the BB’s so that they bounce from side-to-side down the barrel. Obviously, this means that you never hit what you are aiming at ’cause they ain’t flyin’ true!
