One of Nintendo’s early light gun “games”

    In honor of the mediocre release of Wild West Guns on WiiWare let’s look back at a 1976 light gun toy from Nintendo. The Nintendo Kousenju Custom Gunman is amazingly basic, it doesn’t even move. All you do is shoot it with a bundled revolver. The delay is laughable, but for a 1970’s toy it’s actually pretty neat. Watch how this thing winds itself back up so you can shoot it again.
