So far, i've never seen a kid playing army with his buddies with their squirt/bb guns and he's wielding a fully automatic B.A.R.!
Actually, I supplied them with two Mauser 98Ks and a Nambu pistol....along with 2 German helmets, 1 WWI "doughboy" helmet, two Japanese hand grenades, web belts, packs etc.
I was the neighborhood armorer.
Gave the grenades to my neighbor several years ago. He's an explosives expert with the BATFE.
Had one of the Mausers sporterized into a sweet .30-06 about 20 years ago.
