Gotcha was a paintball gun. The guns were orange and yellow if I remember correctly. There was also a Gotcha game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The squirt guns with disappearing ink were called zap it.

Yep, Ryan is right. Gotcha was an early paintball gun, no disappearing ink involved.

The movie you speak of was horrible. It starred noneother than "Goose","Dr. Greene" Anthony Edwards!!!

I remember having 2 of the Gotcha guns back in the day. In theory they sounded cool but they sucked. They had round cartridges which you loaded into the gun that I think rotated when you cocked it or something between shots.I think I also remember having to soak the cartridges in water before use to make the paint "splatter". The pellets were made of rubber with open area which contained the paint.They also came out with a Gotcha video game for the NES.Damn can't believe I remember that much from how many years ago but can't remember sh*t from last week.

I was just looking through some old boxes at my grandmothers house yesterday and i found one of my old gotcha guns. I was blown away it brought back some old memories. If i remember correctly they didnt work that great but they were still cool. I guess they were cool enough for me to come here and type this!

What you are talking about is actually Zap it! Zap it! were toy water guns that shot red or blue disappearing ink.
