I actually had one of these guns when I was a lad, It was my pride and joy, I kept it in it's box and used it to shoot my imaginary friends due to the fact that I didn't have any real ones. If I had had any real one's I would have shot my imaginary friends with those no doubt slowly destroying the house.

Can't remember why now but I used to keep my JSG under my parents bed (maybe I had a divan?)and I forgot about it for a while. Then one day I remembered it and went upstairs to find my JSG had disappeared! My parents denied all knowledge of it and there wasn't Ebay in those day. Secretly my parents were anti gun they were very English and not your typical American. I do wonder now if they just decided not to encourage my playing with this weapon of mass destruction in case I should grow up to be a gangster and casually lost it. I always wondered what happened to my JSG not enough to pay £200 for a broken one without a box re the link above though. My parents passed away years ago and I never did get to find out what happened to my favourite toy. <3

#7 JJ, I have the answer to your toy gun mystery, your parents actually gave it to me, because they felt that I was older and more mature than you were at the time, (of course that has changed, in the meantime I'm just older but less mature) and I needed it to shoot the neighborhood and school bullies, which I did, and then they told me to just keep it and safeguard it and return it to you when you were of age, but I couldn't find you, and even though I have "known" you here on snotr, I did not know that you were the little boy I was safeguarding it for...so if you would like to you may have it back, after all you are the rightful owner.... <3

#8 Well it's a small world (although I wouldn't want to paint it)that's absolutely amazing. Yes I wasn't very mature at the time you could tell because I played with toy guns. Mystery solved so have you kept the box and all the bullets and everything and I'm pretty sure there was a couple of hundred quid I'd hidden in the handle is that still there too >:) <3

#9 Yes, JJ, everything is still there just as you remember it the last time you've seen it. The question is now how to get it to you... >:) :squirrel:

#10 Oh my I'm really excited now Thunders. I just telephoned my bank as obviously the Bank notes in the handle are no longer legal tender as English notes have changed many times since the mid sixties.

The good news is that two hundred quid in 1965 is now worth considerably more in 2013. A quick calculation is that I brought my first house in the early 80's for £10.000 the same house today would cost £170.000 and that wasn't a great house. Back in 1965 the same house would have been around £700 so allowing for the rarity of the actual notes and fractioning in the value increase I think there should just about be enough money for a love nest somewhere like Cleethorpes or Doncaster.

Apparently all that's needed initially are the serial numbers and denomination of the notes. I can't remember what they were now I'm thinking several ten bob notes at least one half a crown note and a number of twenty five pound notes. Get those numbers to me Thunders and I'll start nest hunting immediately <3 :) >:)

Even though Black Locust (acacia) is one of my favorites (not sure it grows in the UK), I still think, considering this is in England, the most appropriate and most fitting, and most steadfast would be the English Oak...hope you think so too...otherwise I'm okay with any tree of your liking <3 >:) :squirrel:

#14 You know I had a feeling you would go with EO and you're right we don't have too many Black Locust Acacia's although I bet there is one in the Eden Project. I'll start the search right away, so I'm thinking sea view to the South, Green hillsides to the West, desert to the East and Marshland to West, Could be a little tricky but I'm a determined man on a mission <3 :squirrel:

#15 Sea view, green hillsides and marshland sound wonderful...desert in England?? Since when?? And even though your effort and your mission is very much acknowledged and appreciated, no need for all four of them at the same time, even only one of them is beautiful enough and suffices...is there snow in the UK? Love snow.... <3 <3 <3

#16 Well there is in Scotland most of the time and Scotland is still part of the UK this week. Snow falls on England occasionally in the winter but it isn't guaranteed. When it falls it falls I remember six feet of snow was not uncommon when I was young, you would open the front door and it would be solid snow in front of you. Perhaps we'll forget about the desert >:)
