Super Cap Gun
Advantages: fast firing, auto-function, great compound, imaginative, very very safe, cheap and fun to play with.
Disadvantages: Caps are sold seperately, not for use in crowded public places.
I want to start by saying that this sort of thing doesn't make people serial killers. You can't blame society's ills on children's toys. It's just silly.
The Super Cap Gun is pretty much the old standard of children's cap guns. Made of a heavy plastic / metal compound, it's fires caps off at a surprisingly loud, and surprisingly irritating rate. Because of its monochrome nature it has a lot of imaginative applications because it could belong to a policeman or a soldier or whomever your child wants it too.
The firing rate is very fast and very loud and satisfying. The handle is ergonomic so it won't hurt your child's fingers or give them blisters, and the toy is completely safe for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's great that you can't hold up a bank with it because of the painted red part of the barrel, and the caps will definitely not burn the fingers of the user, owing the the heaviness of the (probably treated) metal compound in which the loader of the gun is encased.
Nonetheless, although it doesn't give off too much of a spark, it's still a satisfying sound and feel, and caps are easy to load with no mechanisms that might chop the ends of your fingers off. The back of the gun can also but hit precisely with the palm of your hand, to give of an awesome western automatic effect which although wastes caps, looks really cool.
It takes standard six-shooter caps which are available all over the place, and are the most popular kind, so you definitely won't need to worry about that, but it doesn't actually come with any caps equipped or packaged, so you'll have to buy them seperately. It also makes an excellent last-minute gift for a child, (although be warned it lasts a long time, so if you're easily irritated, perhaps this is not for you or your child.)
At only a couple of quid, not including the very cheap caps which can be bought in bulk for practically nothing, it's great value in terms of the ratio of pounds to hours of entertainment your child will get out of it.
It's a great little toy that's a very generic and reliable model with no silly bells and whistles that's great fun for kids, although try not to let them loose in public places with it. It tends to spread panic. Recommended.
Summary: The best economy capgun money can buy.
