Gabriel and Red about the Austin Magic Pistol
The Austin Magic Pistol (simply referred to as Magic Pistol) was a toy gun in the late 1940s where many people could actually do a bit of real-world violence with it as well. The Magic Pistol was sometimes known as the Ping-Pong Blaster. It used calcium carbide, a chemical that undergoes a huge explosive reaction when mixed with water, to propel ping-pong balls out of the muzzle at a terrifying rate of speed. The fireball that this toy created was so dangerous that they were rapidly taken off the market. The Magic Pistol also appeared in the MYCUN film franchise as one of Gabriel's two main weapons (along with Gabriel's Magic Sword).
