Greenie Stick 'em Caps

Believe it or not, we were trying to remember the theme song to Car 54, Where Are You? That comedy TV show from the early 1960s. Turns out, it only has one verse.

I still have the Dick Tracy .38 snubnose revolver cap gun that shot caps and little plastic bullets. It's somewhere in my attic.

And, that reminded me of when my pal Gary and I used to shoot our cap guns. Gary favored Greenie Stick 'em Caps. These caps stuck to the toy bullet and after they exploded you had to peel them off.

I loved the boxes of red-roll caps. You put the roll in the gun and shot off your caps until your fingers went numb.

When we got bored shooting one or two caps off with our toy guns, we would slam a brick on a box and watch it explode.

Those were the 60s. That's how we had fun. That and dirt bombs. We were to fat, dumb and happy to worry about the A-bomb.
