Nerf N-Strike Maverick Toy Gun - I bought my son a toy, and I'm the only one playing with it.
I did this with a Nerf N-Strike Maverick toy gun, a Nerf dart six-shooter. Since it was ridiculously cheap ($8 each), I bought two so my son and a friend could have shootouts...
...I suppose that's not smart parenting on so many levels, but I won't go there.
As soon as my son unwrapped them, I opened one and starting shooting anything convenient.
NOTE: I refrained from shooting at the cat.
In the middle of setting many bad examples for my son, I asked him if he wanted to play.
He took the Nerf N-Strike toy, shot at a few things, then handed it back to me and hasn't touched it since.
On the other hand, I continued to invent targets.
Now that most of the light fixtures in the house are broken, I mostly shoot at images on the TV.
Wanna know what happened to the cat?
As for the cat, I take enormous pride in the fact our cat is not under the bed, terrorized. I haven't shot at her once. Really.
I hope that is some sign of maturity...coming from a man who still plays with his son's toys.
Postscript - Quick Product Review
I see on Amazon there are a couple Nerf N-Strike models, and I wanted to be clear which I think is best.
The one I like is the Nerf N-Strike Maverick. It holds six shots like a revolver, which is great because it means less reloading.
The Nerf N-Strike Nite Finder EX-3 looks to be quite good as well; however, it has to be reloaded for each shot. A drawback in a firefight...
...or if the cat tries to retaliate.
