Manasquan, NJ –-( It is coming up quick this year, that magical holy day called Christmas. When every red-blooded American Child goes to bed early and stays up all night dreaming of the wonders that will be left under the tree by Jolly ole Saint Nick.

I remember that my brother and I’s most memorable gifts all had something to do with Stretch Armstrong, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em ROBOTS, or Toy Guns. It seems now the first two have been replaced by iPhones and X-Boxes but nothing can replace a fun Toy Gun as a gift.

There is no age limit that can not be satisfied with the gift of a toy firearm, whether it is the safe and soft Nerf guns for the very young to the lucky pre-teen that finds a working BB Gun under the tree.  Not only is it a thrill and a hoot to shoot my picks of the best toy guns, but there is the underlying knowledge and pride that your cool Dad or worried Mom both trust you enough to handle it safely and responsibly.

Here are My Top Five pick for Best Toy Guns :

  • CAR-15 Carbine M-16 Toy Rifle
  • The Nerf Reactor
  • Modern Warfare SNIPER RIFLES Miniature Toy Guns Pack
  • Crosman Game Face Defender Strike Kit
  • Gamo Whisper Silent Cat Air Rifle

1) CAR-15 Carbine M-16 Toy Rifle

CAR-15 Carbine M-16 Toy Rifle
CAR-15 Carbine M-16 Toy Rifle

This makes my list for just one reason, Price! Just $9.99ea. They are so cheap in price that it would be an insane gift if your youngster found a stack of these under the tree for him, thank you Santa!  You can bet JR will be the hit of his posse when he shows up at the fort with a stack of M16s in his wagon. Talk about playing army, all his best buds will be issued their own M16 Carbine just like GI Joe.

The sturdy ABS plastic material vibrates when you pull the trigger making firing sounds. Length: 16 Inches, realistic RAT-TAT-TAT firing sound with no batteries needed!

And if you really want to blow their minds throw in a Lot of 4 Kids Toy B/O Grenades for Pretend Play.   Throw one at Grandma…!


2) The Nerf Reactor Recommended age: 6 years and up. Also, be sure and get extra ammo, Hog Wild Green Refill Balls

“There is something so appealing about blasting foam balls out of a plastic gun. And when the gun looks as cool as this all-plastic Air Tech Ball Blaster from Nerf, the experience is even more gratifying. The Ball Blaster’s design is quite simple, and consequently, it’s very easy to use. Just push the four foam balls (included) into the launch tube, and you’re loaded. When you have a target in sight, grab the front barrel handle and pull it towards you. Only one ball will fire at a time, but with a little practice you should be able to unleash a fierce volley of four foam projectiles in short order. The one we tested was surprisingly accurate and was powerful enough to cross a medium-sized room quickly. The manufacturer explicitly warns against firing the Ball Blaster at other people or animals, but the foam balls are very soft and lightweight and would probably not be fatal if one should be accidentally fired at an annoying sibling or coworker… just kidding coworkers, of course.” says Chris Burns

5) Gamo Whisper Silent Cat Air Rifle: Recommended age: 10 years and up.

Now we are into the big girl & boy toys. This is for the responsible teens that are familiar with all the rules of gun safety, who are looking to shoot tin cans in the basement and paper targets on the backyard range. Many states now allow the use of air rifles for hunting squirrels, rabbits, and other games so this can be a great incentive for new shooters to go and get their hunting license.

Gamo Whisper Silent Cat Air Rifle
While the Gamo Whisper Silent Cat Air Rifle made the list of best toy guns. This is a serious air gun and any child lucky enough to get one needs some gun safety training and adult supervision.

All kidding aside, toy guns and a great way to introduce children to gun safety. Before we get them to the training with the real things, my list of the best toy guns will give kids a fun start and give parents an opening to talk about the basics of gun safety.

Anti gun east coast ,west coat and , mid states with high property taxes, anti gun seem to go hand in hand . Seems like all the WELFARE STATES is the problem.
Too bad states forgot what shall not be infringed means, I do believe our founding fathers would have found our current government oppressive and treasonous , then executed them.

Lived in Nj for 50 yrs. The property tax and cost of living sucks the life out of any argument about wages. The regulations are insane. If you buy the BB gun out of state and bring it home, they might charge you with gun running.God forbid you buy it for your kid, then its a straw purchase. Moved to middle America, BB guns sold at Walmart, no permits required. You can actually be issued a CCW permit. What America is supposed to be. Keep your wages and New Jersey, i have FREEDOM instead


Tony Soprano loved living in New Jersey. That should give you a clue to prospering in NJ. LOL


To hell with NJ ! Who the hell would want to raise kids in that shithole ?

Still love Bruce Springsteen though!

Comments not loading. BB guns are legal to own , just buy out of state .

Check the Law

BB guns require paperwork to ” buy ” in NJ , however if purchased out of state , and brought into NJ mere possession
is not prohibited. Check local laws.

Just a note to our New Jersey members. As a resident of new jersey Iam reasonably certain that the gamo air gun mentioned is illegal in new jersey.
