Sure, you could buy one of those fancy-pants airsoft pellet guns and assail your friends with tiny plastic balls. But wouldn’t you rather just make loud noises in their general direction? Whether you prefer ring caps, strip caps, or an endless roll, there are guns out there for you–at least there used to be. Now it seems like even the discounted dollar store plastic pistolas have disappeared.
I found the ring caps to be slightly more reliable than the rolls, although somewhat quicker to deplete. But either was better than the tiny guns that took one small plastic cap, carefully removed from a ring or strip. Bang! and time to reload. Bang! and time to reload again. Nothing beat the real puff of smoke that accompanied that Bang!, which makes you wonder–what ever happened to cap guns?
