Crescent “Texas” Double Holster Set

Now what 70s kid never had a set of these? Would always be running round in my younger days with these loaded full of caps and ready for any quick-draw contest. The funniest thing involving these guns didn’t involve me tho.

My step brothers were watching a western film on telly one night when the youngest, all decked out in his double holster pistol set decided it would be a good idea to re-enact part of the movie by crouching behind the settee then jumping up and giving his brother a crack over the head with the gun handle.

Now these guns were made of die cast metal and could do quite a bit of damage as my step brother could testify with 6 stitches in his head.

Price circa 1976 from Argos £1.75

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
