My son has a friend who has an arsenal of “air soft guns” … I never really heard of them until Andrew told me about them. And who’d a thunk it that VISION FORUM sells them?! In fact, the deal-of-the-day model today is similar to a World War II .45 handgun. Because my son LOVES World War II history AND air soft guns, I’m seriously considering this purchase … 40% off today (for the next 3 hours!) … for a special occasion (like his 13th birthday in September). This regularly priced $50 gun is $30 today!
I know some people have “issues” with boys playing with guns … and we too have made “rules” about gun play (IE “don’t shoot to KILL your friend”), but being a former military family, it is just totally unavoidable to play with guns! Particularly NERF ones!!! 🙂 I even like those! 🙂
I’m also considering THIS BOOK for Andrew (though it isn’t on sale, but it is “only” $10):
Vision Forum is pleased to announce the publication of The Boy’s Guide to the Historical Adventures of G.A. Henty, by William Potter. An indispensable tool for the boy who loves heroes and histories. This 126-page guide is the perfect tool for the student of history and the lover of the greatest adventure literature of the nineteenth century.
The Boy’s Guide offers two unique features. First, it gives the history of the remarkable life of Henty, and the reason why Christian boys should read his adventure stories. Second, it gives the reader both a plot summary and an historical overview of each of the more than seventy works of historical fiction that flowed from the pen of a man whom Sword and Trowel named “the king of storytellers for boys.”
SO MUCH good stuff at Vision Forum … I love to browse & make mental wish lists …
(and yes, I’m an affiliate, but only because I think their products are SO awesome).
