I saw a set on eBay, but no, I haven't bothered to get any yet. I haven't even got any of the full-sized ones.

Too darn cute! Too bad those guys don't appear to be available anywhere near to me.

I wouldnt want them, they would probably be useless in combat.
Stealth over speed. Accuracy over firepower. Coordination over chaos.

Only the arrogant claim they do not make mistakes in combat, hence they never learn.

Well, for typical outdoor water fights, probably not very effective. However, for collectors and the odd indoor water fight, they'd be perfect!

Those are just regular squirt pistols though, right? Where do you get them? I might get one, if just to have one.

Agreed. My mini CPS 2100 is so cool. I've used it in so many indoor sneak attacks. Plus as Isoaker said, it's cute.

Why not just use a squirt pistol? Probably cheaper.

But minis are much more fun. I have a mini-MX, and it's great for ambushing the freshmen at track practice. They actually shoot far, for their size. My pump is messed up and because of that it gets over 25ft range!

They're only $1 at Jack in the Box restaurants for a limited time.

those mini's shoot surprisingly well for their size. if you've got a bunch of them, just load your pockets and use them as last resort weapons.

First, I have to say that i actually like squirt pistols. They are nice to play around indoors, plus these are the first water guns I played with as a kid (pre-soaker time.)

Now having said that, other than a collectors worth, I would not see much use in SS minis. Especialy since the molding of the mini replicas take away some space from the water tank. My local $2 store sells 3-4 squirt pistols for $1.50 CAN. And those have the very nice neon-transparent look with an economical space and deasant range.
Plus when it comes to indoor games, squirt pistols have made an advancement over the years aswell which should be out of the league of SS minis.

My kids got a bunch of them with their kids meals. They really enjoyed playing with them in the bath tub, and prompted us to go out and buy some real soakers, which has led me here.

Mini soakers for $1! I should get some now, but for some reason no stores around my area sell them. Too bad.
