    grandma get your gun…lol

    Is that a Obama/Biden sticker on the butt stock?

  5. Inkcap says:

    You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.

  6. Draken says:

    It’s a Mattel M-16 Marauder toy gun from the 1960’s, probably from before the orange barrel was required.

  7. Craig says:

    Don’t worry, it’s not loaded. 😉

  8. Noodengr says:

    By law toy guns must have the barrel end bright orange. I see no color on the end of this gun.
    I would guess that it is real. The younger they learn proper gun safety the better.

      It only became required in the 1990’s. This looks like a Mattel M-16 Marauder in the 1960’s. Long before the red tip became a thing.

    I want my regulation size casserole dish back….NOW!

    Its a toy, unless it is chambered in some sort of massive round. Also nothing wrong with boys playing with toy guns. A lot better than boys playing first person shooter video games and never actually learning how to safely operate a firearm.

      Pretty funny. I saw that too Alec. Unless our friends at Colt have partnered with Barrett and managed to chamber an AR in .50 cal I’m pretty sure it’s a squirt gun and it’s got a water reservoir that looks like a big magazine. My son had one similar about 15 years ago. Greatest squirt gun EVER. Regardless…a .50 cal AR?! Where do I sign up?

    What gun? All I can see is a sweater. And wood panelling.

  12. cassie says:

    looks real to me. 223 caliber M4,M16, or AR 15

    NRA granny…

    Gotta be a toy gun, but I thought all newer toy guns had to have an orange barrel. The photo is fairly recent… maybe just the toy is old.

  15. Shelley says:

    This is so cute, they both look so happy, and yes GMa had the best toys:)

      That is what I think is so awkward about this photo. That Nana is so proud of her boy–grandson–that she’s smiling. And let’s just hope this is a toy and not the real thing.
