You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!

What kid didn't want their own Red Beamer laser rifle?  Chunk-a-Nuke props brings us this conjectural "Fallout" prop inspired by the classic Red Ryder BB gun.

I really enjoy this prop. It has the feel of a late 1940s tin toy and the appearance of wear and use. Propnomicon can really dig them up. Here’s a site about the Lehmann company, a maker of tin toys from the 1890s to the 1960. Most important for prop makers, many of the original pasteboard boxes appear with the toys. http://lehmanntoycollection.com/

Finally for those of you who remember commercials of this ilk, but done in parody form from the makers of Ren and Stimpy, Log (from Blammo):
