    I ended up spending two hours of my life going through every year on that link...

    DON'T click on it unless you have time on your hands people... You won't be able to tear yourself away from it.

    The sunglasses that all CMs were required to wear while working the shooting galleries, were a poor man's version of safety goggles. The sunglasses were to protect against stray pellets ricocheting off the metal targets.

    Re: No "Big Game Shooting Gallery"?

    I just got my NFFC newsletter. In the classified section someone is selling a 1970's Original Disney Theme park shooting gallery, guns an the whole setup. I don't have the 150K needed to purchase, but could this be our gallery?
