Last-Minute Gift Idea: A Red Ranger Raygun
|Caleb Winter Massey and his table of rayguns at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market Saturday afternoon|
My first exposure to ray guns and their unparalleled awesomeness was on a fourth grade field trip. Some science dude was talking about something, but I honestly don't remember anything about that lecture. The ray gun he was holding had taken control of my mind. It was the Hubley Atomic Disintegrator with it's clean, classic look and wonderful red handle. I had the brief opportunity to hold this masterpiece and never wanted to let go.
The Red Rangers were founded in 1885 as a Special-Ops branch of the Texas Rangers to combat the increasing tide of railroad pirates. They became pioneers in advanced weaponry, employing the use of the greatest scientific minds of their time. With their genius, the Red Rangers developed the most awe inspiring display of atomic and steam powered devices ever witnessed. These are those creations. They have been declassified and made available to civilians. For the health and safety of you and your family, all weapons have had their energy cores drained.Better still, they're considered quite the green machines: Last month, Massey's creations made Recycling.com's list of Fifteen Custom-Built Recycled Nerf Guns.
