Shooting's Fun For Everyone

You certainly don't have to be a hunter or even a gun enthusiast to enjoy this wonderfully illustrated rifle shooting pamphlet (for boys and girls) issued by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute in 1959. Each page is seriously jam packed with important info, safety tips, and fun facts, and occasionally even "Blooey" the half dog / half rifle mascot steps into the action-- leaving you to ponder how such a creature as this could even exist. Also, his bullet-headed buddy "Sammy Shooter" (aka Vinny the Vibrator) makes a few arousing appearences here while obviously taking a much needed breather from his usual, tiresome dildo duties. Okay, enough yappin'-- now go bag ya some pesky varmits!

The is great stuff. The fundamentals of shooting are timeless and as true now as then. The times have changed though - not for the better, I'm afraid. What a different ring has the phrase "Organize shooting fun in your school" today than in 1959.

Beautiful graphic design typical of the era. Everything balanced, well drawn, and perfectly composed on the page.
