These used to be great fun, shame they changed them. You could separate the two and fire the ring with the other part, those things would fly! And then celebrate your achievement with a good drink.

IIRC they got changed to help with litter problem......If you didn't drop it in the can, you usually threw it somewhere if you were outdoors.

They were good for firing at people :D Imagine doing it now.......

You can still fire the ring pulls at people - rotate them through 180 degrees, aim, push and PINK! Off they go.
My car isn't stupid.... it's MENTAL.
