If the headline and image don't convince you to buy your tot a gun, perhaps the copy will: "Every live, healthy boy wants a 'King' AirRifle. It's boy nature to want a gun; to want to get out in the fields and woods, nearest to nature, and enjoy youthful life to its fullest extent. Get your boy a 'King' Air Rifle. It will mean health and boyish happiness -- and steady nerves, keener eyesight and well-developed powers of observation."
