So I was asked this last Halloween how much firepower I was taking trick or treating. I replied, "a blaster and a light saber." Apparently I was not believed so here is the proof.
As an aside the kids were well protected and the lightsaber did not have to come out to fight evil. I also found that this kept sigboy jr from taking his lightsaber and chasing all of the other children that were frolicking about. I had to constantly remind him to only use the force for good and to only take out his lightsaber when evil was present.
However, I was secretly hoping to find someone dressed from the 'darkside' (I wanted to use the lightsaber, not the 226 blaster).
