Because I never had enough toys as a child or I never grew up or perhaps both could be the reason I am fixed upon making Ray guns. I have been constructing them for about 25 years. None of them fire anything and have no moving parts, just ones imagination as to what sounds they make and what their power is. Wood, plastic and metal are the materials.
Blue Blaster is my latest and one I would have coveted as a kid blasting away at the invading Martians.
