    i used to have this gun. At least it looked something like that, it's crazy old school. I used to also have this drone thing that you could shoot, and it would shoot back.

    It used to be my dream to have laser tag at home. Unfortunately, by time Toys R Us stuff was out, I was basically too old to care.

    Laser Tag is great, I never understood why it didn't catch on more. Back in high school, we'd always play at night outside, or in the woods. Good times, good times. We even got stopped by a cop once outside, wondering why a bunch of kids were lurking around at night with guns, hiding in other people's yards. Nowadays we'd probably get shot on sight.

    dude when i was a kid i had the best one. it was called Electronic Survivor shot, and you wore this thing around your head. And when you got shot, it would vibrate on your head.

    The head band had a red light, but my friends and I made it more fun and tape electrical tape over the red light and played at night.

    It was scary as fvck to be walking around at night and your headband started to vibrate out of nowhere. Freaky shlt. The vibrating part was right on your temple too.

    See if you can find it on ebay or something, best laser tag I have ever used in my life.

    EDIT: HERE IT IS!!

    Check Walmart for this stuff. I got two of the small guns and two of the large "cannon guns" for a total of $50 on clearance. The little guns have a heads up display that is sweet and the cannon gun actually shoots a little nerf missle that "paints" the room with lasers and destroys anyone in range.

    Fun stuff. I'm SOOOO glad I had a boy and not a girl!
