Crosman 1886.
The Crosman Model 38 CO2 Revolver
Some three decades ago a dealer once said he wouldn't stock CO2 powered guns because their muzzle velocity was  pathetic. Chagrined by this,the late great political and sports cartoonist,Nevile Lodge OBE,himself an ardent airgun collector,felt moved to illustrate the silly fellow's sentiment!

 To shoot or not to shoot?8mm film cassette.

The Crosman "to shoot or not to shoot"movie kit.(Well described in DTFs Crosman 160 book.)Basically it is a Technicolor 8mm projector(takes cassettes)that shows films of confrontational to "difficult"scenes involving guns. The projector is operated by a sonic switch-sensitive to the bang of a CO2 gun.When you shoot at the disposable screen the picture "freezes" and you can see if you hit a baddie or shot a lady with a baby!The films have gone magenta but the action can still be seen.I understand Crosman staff made these flicks in the firm's carpark.
