Thanks for the memories! Having been born in June 1956, I owned all of the toy guns pictured. The Mattel Thompson came with a helmet with Sergeant stripes, gunbelt with ammo pouches and KaBar knife, and a camoflage poncho. I had totally forgotten the Dick Tracy shoulder holster, which I wore to school under my red blazer on the day we had our school photos taken. If I did that today I'd probably be expelled for life, in 1965 I just had to bring it home at lunchtime. Thanks so much!
Tom, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately you are right, if you brought that toy to school today you would be finishing your education online!
