    I always hated the "BB gun wars," as I was too responsible, and, well, forward thinking!

    (I do remember, once, when talked in to having a battle, lying prone on the branch of a felled tree, as both my brother, and buddy--both on the other team--walked right in front of my sights. I lined it up on my buddy's face, and, I think, I could have gotten two "head shots" in, before anyone found me. I know I could have gotten one of them. And, I think, I could have avoided any counter-fire, as NO ONE knew where I was....)

    Rope Swings in a River: That was our "water park."

    And, slingshots were just tons of fun!!!!

    Playing with <gasp!> toy guns in the side yard by actually aiming at them!

    Simular to bb gun stuff but less lethal. Lol

    I was outside once, my brother was upstairs with a BB gun he thought was empty (actually it was pumped 10 times) he fired thru a window screen, hitting me in the head, the bb did not penetrate my skull but slid a couple inches under my scalp!
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon!

    Shooting firecrackers at you friends through a bean shooter. A you have to do is loosen the fuse on the firecracker, place it in the bean shooter, light the fuse and aim it in the general direction that you want it to go. Tons of fun.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    (Did your brother get something else kids do not seem to experience, these days: What my Dad use to refer to as a "tanned backside....")
