I feel very sorry for the new generation of children growing up. As early as I can remember I had my cap guns and ten gallon hat hanging by my bed, and at 49 I still do!
Now children are discouraged to play cowboys, or cops and military men. What a shame.
Clearly it would be far better to have kids running around playing cowboys than sitting in their rooms on the computer.
Wall-Mart takes a lot of heat these days but it is the only place you can go in and outfit your little cowboy or cowgirl.
I have always loved the Duke, Roy the long Ranger and Chuck. I remember the first time I saw the Alamo my Mom bought me a four foot Paris wooden musket, I still have it. Wow I loved than gun. I lost count of how many times I won the Alamo! My Dad made me a leather pouch and I cut roll caps so I could have quick single shots....I can still smell the powder from those old caps.
