Default Advertisements of the past. Some of these are priceless.

I get a kick out of how marketing has progressed. Some of the PC police would freak out if these were advertised today. And some of this stuff was sure to kill you. Post up more if you have them.

I didn't believe it either when my Drill Sargent told me it was made by Mattel, and it had Colt right on the receiver. I took the triangle hand guard off and sure enough, right on the inside of it, "Made by Mattel".
