Sure we all had them ,and more. BTW ,those many banded linoleum piece "guns" could really harm.Later (as we grew more semi-shady),we made more nasty stuff.Remember the Garrison belt,brass buckle.Well we filed down the four corners,on the inside ,at an angle. That made the tips knife sharp. We also bought them longer than we needed,so we could loop the belt back through the buckle.This way, one pull opened the belt.Car antennas made for a nasty whip.Also ,the lower half of the antenna made a great barrel for a 22. Add a simple slide bolt lock(filed to a half point),rubber bands,wood,poof another street nasty.Never used,but crazy kid stuff.One more, gunpower made from salt peter,charcoal and sulfur
