Guns & Pistols(HKTDC Toys & Games , Vol 02,2006)

All Fired Up!

Kids have always loved to play "goodies and baddies" and chase each other around with toy guns. It's all part of being a boy of course. Where once upon a time it was cowboys and Indians, with popguns and fast-draw pistols, today we see automatic rifles, space shooters, zappers and telescopic sights.

Times have changed, but the fun goes on.

Space Shooter

A shooting experience in the new tradition comes from Golden Bright Mfr Ltd's Laser Fighter X. This item shoots an infrared beam over 100 feet, targeting a set of supplied vests to record hits - a vibrating alert warns the wearer! There are flash displays and digital, real-shot sounds and a spring-back reload system.

Fully Loaded

Vinbo Industrial Ltd takes its guns seriously, and its airguns are used by SWAT teams and law enforcement training schools. There's a heavy, long rifle; a substantial pump gun; a hefty handgun with automatic or single shot functions; and a sports shooter. These are all made from fine grade plastic and in military colours.

Making A Splash

There is only one type of gun that brings more laughter than a bean shooter and that's a water gun. This selection from Datawide Industrial Ltd comes in a range of sizes from 20cm-55cm. The housing material is ABS, and the designs make fun use of a contrasting mix of colours.

Quick Draw

Tai Cheong Plastic Toys Industrial Ltd offers something for every kid. For example, the Space Missile launcher can shoot its projectiles up to 20 feet; the Mega 8 Darts Blast is a zappy multi-shooter; and the 21st Century Force gun has a different sound with each trigger press.

Well Armed

The pump-action Shooting Gun from Wah Lok Plastic Mfy uses cork bullets to accent the safety angle despite its 25-foot range. The Super Sound handgun in camouflage colours certainly sounds like the real thing, while the Star Fighter launcher propels gliders that come complete with cardboard wings for added flight path control.

On Target

Goodwin Hong Kong Product Mfrs brings to market a range of water pistols catering to different age groups: there are large guns for older boys and lighter models for smaller hands and fingers. Made from plastic, one model also has a see-through window to check on the water level.

Guns For All

For the traditionally-raised child, these die-cast guns from Hose Industrial (HK) Co Ltd are bound to thrill. They feel as weighty as a gun should, and they fire caps. The range includes a rifle for the lone ranger; a musket for pirates; and a sleek and slim, eight-shot auto pistol for the young sleuth.
