    Boy's Life Magazine

    Every single issue is available for free on Google Books

    Try it, it's fun. Here is the issue from the month and year I was born. (you can use the full page control and zoom control to make it eminently more readable) Guns? Yep. Motorcycles? Yep. Won't see that in today's issues, but I can read those pages and see how I got this way.

    If you scrolled that magazine a bit you saw the Harley Super 10 (hummer). Go over here and drool. If I had $8500 bucks laying around that blue '51 all original with 2 miles on the clock would be...gone!

    As a kid, I probably had a thousand dreams that featured me roaring down the country roads on one of those babies. Alas, no helmet, grin a mile wide.

    And those good old made in the USA Weinbrenner official Scout boots? Yup, you can still get them, and they are still made right here in the USA. Weinbrenner Shoe Company - USA

    I'm wearing mine today since I just have some desk work to attend to before young Ben and I head off to go Shopping as soon as he gets off work. Bass Pro in Perrysburg and then up to Dundee to Cabellas. Rare treat for us guys who live in the sticks. Pennies have been saved...new goose shells are on my agenda.

    Well, let's see. The official Boy Scout knives are now made in China. But an enterprising person can still get a real Colonial made in USA cub scout knife straight from Colonial Knife Company. That's interesting since it is a licensed product and the BSA doesn't offer them anymore. Nice sized knife too, had one when I was young...actually I still have it. Colonial Knife Company, Inc.

    Hmm, you can still get a Red Ryder BB gun. I was going to say they were not the same because of the plastic cocking lever, but the special 75th anniversary model will be offered once again with the metal lever. Daisy Red Ryder 75th Anniversary Edition BB Gun | Bass Pro Shops

    You can still get a classic Wilson infielder mit, but you are going to pay for it. (mine's in the truck...ouch that was an expensive purchase. can probably put it away now for the winter)

    Still get a Daisy model 25 pump. Not made in the USA, but looks pretty close to the old ones. Got one for Christmas last year. Model 25 Pump Gun | Daisy Outdoor Products

    Voit swim fins from Target. Man, I thought Voit went away long ago. Those UDT fins were classic. These are not. Voit Fin Set - Green : Target

    Carlisle bike tires are gone. Sad story, they were the last US manufacturer to die. Depressing news article here. Observer-Reporter - Google News Archive Search
