I remember watching Rin Tin Tin but the memory is vague and I don't remember a uniform (yeah, I know I could look it up).  The only cool outfit I had that I recall was about age 6, a really neat Zorro outfit with hat, mask, a reversible red/black satin cape and reversible red/black satin sash, plus plastic sword (epee?) of course.  All I lacked was boots, so I'd tuck my pants into dark socks.  :)

I had a Mattel rolling block carbine too... No uniform though.
I did have a Roman breast plate (of styrene plastic) shield and plastic jeweled short sword; My Kingdom was my neighborhood as I ventured many quests.

Here is a memory you may recall,
Kellogg's U.S. Navy Frogmen, they had a capsule on one leg that when filled with backing soda would propel them in water.
Even the evening tub was an adventure :)

Rick I have given you the Sr. # for this one and a couple others for your survey  , so he should have the Sr. # already  . As I have stated  in the past  , I no longer give out Sr# to any of my rifles  for personal surveys ,  because the Sr. # end up being passed around  . Not something I care for . So the only time I will give out a Sr. # is if a possible buyer would like to check out the letter . And I'm not selling anything . Good to hear from you , been a while .,,,,,,DT

I may have mentioned before I was a fan of Rin Tin Tin. One year for my birthday my Mom gave me an outfit that was the same as Rusty's uniform, complete with turned up front to the hat and yellow Cavalry bandanna.

I remember those uniforms (Rusty's) seeing them back in the day in Sears, Montgomery Wards, and others, looked pretty sharp. I always wanted the Lone Ranger outfit. Ahh', the worlds and things our imaginations took us in our younger years. I once made a pair of Davy Crockett style buckskins out of old potato burlap bags and a hat from some old fur skin of some critter from the coat collar one of my Grandma's had. A possible's bag was drummed up from some old, discarded ladies purse. A flint long rifle was made out of a long tree branch that had sort of a bend on one end that sort of looked like a rear stock. That burlap outfit itched like it was full of fleas and was hot with upper temps. A cousin and I took the flat woven lids of old round bushel baskets to be shields, made swords out of wood shaving bale laths, and made spears from long sticks for spears. Fought many Alexander the Great and Roman Army type of engagements. Alot of fun had back then at little expense and imagination. Beats wearing yer thumbs out on some new fangled device kids now think they need.

I remember I had a Mattel rolling block carbine that took the shootable spring-loaded cartridges that I'd affix a Greenie Stick 'Em Cap onto the base of each.
Many an enjoyable afternoon patrolling the neighborhood giving commands to my imaginary faithful canine companion, with a shout of " Go  Rinty! " he'd launch himself to worry the bad guys as I worked that carbine.

I had a Stallion .45.  I believe they were made by Nichols.  It was the size of a real Colt SAA.  I got a 2 gun set for Christmas about 1955.  It had 6 bullets like the ones Balt Ed talked about in his above post.  I completely wore out the first set and got another one when I 12 or so.  2 many moves and 2 many family disruptions for me to have a clue where they are today.  Probably in one of Amarillo's landfills.
