Great game, the most fun of all the ABT pistols because of the animated target gallery. They packed a lot into such a small game.

I like these, I think they're splendid!
However no good in a house with small children as I found out to my grief years ago.

I kept mine on a waist high shelf, and only just caught it as a visitor's small sticky child was pulling it off by the gun grip in an attempt to brain itself.
I then kept it on the floor so it had no where to drop if some meddling kid with a death wish couldn't respect other's property my property.
Within a month another pest visiting and being ignored by its Mother was running around the room when it clumsily tripped over its own oversized floppy feet. In the process of measuring its length it shoved both hands through the glass top FFS!
Fortunately most of the blood hit the metal trough the balls lie in and was easily cleaned.
The main advantage was the parent immediately removed it from my house, I imagine to dispose of it somewhere suitable and never came back. Irritatingly she never sent me the £25 I shouted after her, that she owed me for the broken glass. I can only imagine she was too embarrassed. Oddily my wife at the time (whichever it was) didn't talk to me for about a month, so that was good.

I might get another one now. Nobody has brought a child within a quarter of a mile of me in years.

I've never found dealing with children easy, even when I was one myself.

I remember when Joe 90 first appeared on TV, my first thought was 'I want to hit that specky kid!'.

what do you mean by animated target gallery? I thought the targets just sat there on these ABT games?
Up or down....
