"Hot Shot, the Talking Gun" was introduced at the 1990 Ventriloquist convention. You've heard of "Smith and Wesson" - this was "Chip & Dale" (so dubbed as I recall, by our good friend, Dale Brown). The eyes, fastened with velcro, were stored inside the body of the gun when not in use. A pull on the trigger opened the mouth. When our photographer took these pictures, he said, "Now I've seen everything!" "Don't bet on it, Doug!" was my reply.
