One of These Ads Is Not Like the Others

I think Dad would rather look at the last ad in this sequence.

All taken from the same 1951 issue of BOYS LIFE.

While trying to find the bicycle ad (why a girl's bike in a boy's mag?) I spotted no less than 3 other rifle ads. A much better time to be a boy.

@ Expat, Here Here! And what do you think the odds are that BD is the very excited boy in that Remington ad? :lol: :coolsmile:

I see not only a number of adverts for real firearms, but the back page ad is for a Red Ryder Daisy Carbine action 1000 shot air rifle!

(And you know what comes next...)

I remember getting a bolt action .22 rifle when I was twelve. My dad bought himself a single barrel 12 gauge shotgun for deer hunting. Both came from good ole' Sears Roebuck.

P.S. Keep working on those arabic writing lessons Expat. It looks like you pretty much have it nailed down now. :lol:

As for the last add, the wife will shoot your eye out. :lol:
