Two weeks ago I posted a couple of Mattel Shootin' Shell Fanner commercials (HERE), harkening back to my days as a half-pint gunslinger. This week I grant equal time to my inner detective. Yep, I had one of these Snub-Nose .38s, complete with badge and shoulder holster, and wore it to emulate my favorite private eye, Stu Bailey of 77 Sunset Strip. At the time, of course, I had no idea old Stu had been born in Roy Huggins' The Double Take, but that's another story (told HERE).
I also had the Tommy Burst machine gun, but didn't know it was sold in a detective set. I used mine while wearing my plastic army helmet.
