If Tomco ever becomes endgame, i know one thing that’ll be super cool about the show…

I’ll have gotten to see a kid’s show carefully and ( Hopefully ) Impressively show a relationship evolve from enemies, to acquaintances, to friends, to lovers through emotional support and understanding.

It’s not like Star and Marco who became friends immediately, you’d literally get to watch two characters develop together more and more each episode they’re together.

You’d be watching the progression of their relationship from a pinpoint of knowing nothing about each other, to sharing an amazing connection with the other.

And idk, it’d be super cool to look back at BMB one day and think: “If only they knew just how much they were going to matter to the other…”

Evans air rifle

Manufactured in England c.early 19th century.
~.30 caliber ball, patina’d cast steel ball air tank good for half a dozen shots at effective range.

I love these old air rifles, they never were extremely popular, at least not in the military, because of the fragility of these early air reservoirs. The Austrian army did use the Girardoni air rifle in the late 18th century, but this raised yet another problem of filling the reservoirs back up after usage which was either really long and labor-intensive or required a specialized cart.

Another air rifle with an offset top-mounted brass air tank.
