angled forward arm 106, which has an upwardly bowed
release the mechanism for detonating a cap in the cap
upper surface 108, at the rear end of which is an up
standingnose 110. In the cocked condition of the cap
detonating mechanism, as shown-in FIGURE 3, the for
ward sear arm 106 is slightly depressed below the upper
surface portion 38 of the chamber bottom wall 34.
In this position of the sear 96, its forward arm 106
depresses and tensions a V-shaped sear releasing spring
112, having a lower arm- 114, bearing upon the bottom
116 of the recess 85, and anupper arm 118 bearing
against the underside of the forward rear arm 106. This
provides for the reception in the chamber 26, of a “bullet”
50, with the open rear end 54 of the “bullet” engaged
with the nose 110, and with the forward end 52 of the
“bullet” at or slightly forwardly beyond the forward edges
44 of the chamber top wall 32, whereby, in a vertical
position of the gun, as when engaged in a holster 12, the
“bullet” 50 is prevented from moving forwardly out of
the chamber 26, through the escape opening 48, and the
“bullet” holds the sear 96 in a depressed cocked position.
In operation, when a hand-gun 10 is unholstered and
levelled horizontally at an opposing player P, with the
cord 58 stretched ‘between them, the “bullet” 59‘ is freed
to be pulled forwardly by the cord 58, out of the chamber
26, and toward the opposing player. As the “bullet” 50 is
thus drawn out of the chamber 26, the spring 112 tilts the
sear 96 rearwardly and downwardly, so that its hook 102
