Planet Police Gun

Peter MacLean Enterprizes , 1950s
United States

Another amazingly sculptural gun, the Planet Police captures all the fun of the pulps, with wild curves and sinuous lines.

Squeezing the bulb fires rubber pellets, which are loaded into the barrel through the back. The toy came with a box that included cut-out targets.

The Planet Police gun was also available in yellow. In either color, it's a tough addition to a collection, especially with the box and pellets. The rubber bulb hardens over time, and is often missing—while it could be replaced with a red balloon or similar object, it's not quite the same.
