Say it with bullets…

Another wacky find on Retronaut website – guns for Christmas! It’s amazing what you could sell and to who in the fifties. These days, it would be nothing so tame as a single action rifle, but more an AK-47, or some uber cool handgun like a ceramic Glock, poking out from under the tree lights. Though ironically, you can look behind the image and see a present designed to bond father and son, in healthy hunter, gatherer type ways as they explore the great American outdoors, with their trusty matching Winchesters as purely protection against a hungry grizzly bear. Quite a positive image in comparison to today’s advertising image of father and son sat on the sofa playing Wii tennis whilst relaying the whole sorry experience on Twitter. See the whole collection of Christmas gun adverts here! Start saving for this Christmas!
