From the actual ad...Here it is, boys. You can have an immense amount of fun with this new pistol. It shoots 12-15 ordinary peas without reloading. All you need to do is load the gun with peas, pull the trigger and keep on firing until the barrel is empty. Then reload and fire again. It's absolutely harmless and safe. Nothing to explode. These pistols sell like hotcakes, so get yours at once. Be the first boy in your town to own one of these automatic repeating pistols and be the envy of all the other kids in the neighborhood. Remember, unlike most other guns, it costs practically nothing for ammunition. Just go to the kitchen and help yourself. This pistol is well and strongly made, patterned after the style of a regular automatic, measuring five inches in length, just the right size for your pocket, and weighs about 6 ounces. Each pistol comes packed in an individual carton, one side of which serves the purpose of a target. The price of the PEA-MATIC is 25¢ postpaid. For 25¢ extra we can furnish you with a dandy holster for your PEA-MATIC. The holster is made of genuine leather, with fur covered pocket, complete with belt, thus making a swell outfit.
