Re: why did they do that

interesting ya mentioned the gun being off , a buddy said can ya imagine 2 guys arguing over who got to buy the gun that shot straight? some of those booths I was told were sales reps for the different brands .

I can remember a carnival that came to town back in the late 60's they had a gallery but I was too young to shoot .
I watched grown men throw a fit because they missed ,,and the carny shot the gun and hit the target every time lol

I do remember a lady leaving there with a arm load of stuffed animals and her husband in tears !!

The thing is it was about having fun . that is the heritage that is being lost IMO .
