My son is going to be a happy boy this Christmas.  He’s the best boy I could ever dream of having.   That being said, when Sebastian was young, it didn’t occur to me that he’d grow up to love multi-tools, camping, and bb guns.   I don’t know what I expected.  Nothing compares to the good ole’ outdoors to Sebastian.  My Grandfather passed away when Sebastian was about 7 years old but he still remembers his Daisy BB Gun.  My Grandfather had a great big garden with vegetables that he worked hard to grow and would talk of threatening the mischievous garden rabbits with (the sound of) his bb gun, although he never followed through with even the slightest threat when we were around.  His Daisy BB Gun was kept in a gun cabinet behind his recliner in the living room right by the back door, but he never took it out in front of the kids.  He was a very smart man.

Sebastian is a Boy Scout and loves to be outside, go hiking, camping, relax in his hammock, and build campfires.  The only thing that will make his backyard adventures even more exciting is when he opens his brand new Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun, bb pellets, and goggles this Christmas.  We won’t see him for the rest of the day or the day after, I’m sure.

During our shopping trip to buy the Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun, I was pretty excited.  I actually looked like I knew what I was doing in the sporting goods section at Walmart because it was so easy to find what I was looking for!   The Daisy section at our Walmart is considerable and I recognized the Daisy logo upon entering the section and found the Red Ryder BB Gun quickly.  Gathering accessories to go along with the bb gun was fun too!  I bought safety goggles and a HUGE container of BB pellets for Sebastian to enjoy with his new bb gun.

We are super excited about holiday gifting especially when it comes to our kids, this year.  Every November I get a bit anxious about what the kids will possibly want for Christmas, then it never fails that by the end of the first week of December they both supply us with a list of at least two dozen gift ideas.  My son’s wish list is made up of 80% outdoor products and 20% iPhone accessories and I think between my husband and I and relatives, he will get 100% of the outdoorsy items on his wish list this Christmas.

Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun

Before he’s allowed out the door with his new bb gun, he will have to understand a few gun safety tips:

  1. Check your target and beyond your target.
  2. Only load or cock a gun when you are shooting.  He is NEVER allowed to have pellets in his air soft gun in the house and he is NEVER allowed to cock it in the house.
  3. Anyone shooting or near a shooter should wear shooting glasses.  Do not take chances!
  4. Avoid ricochet. Never shoot at a flat hard surface or at the surface of water. Ammunition can ricochet off of water just like a skipped rock.
Find more gun safety rules on Daisy’s Website.
A Christmas Story movie - Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun

My husband and I already have our safety speech prepared.  Don’t shoot at anything except a target,

A Christmas Story

always wear protective eyewear, and don’t shoot anywhere near icicles!   I think you know why.  At least if you’ve seen the iconic Christmas movie, A Christmas Story, you know why.  The Daisy Red Ryder BB gun was available beginning in 1938 and is a well known bb gun as featured in A Christmas Story.  My husband loves that my son will have a Daisy Red Ryder almost exactly like the one Ralphie has in the movie.
You’ll find Daisy Outdoor products at stores including Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Kmart to name a few.

Oh he’s going to love that! Be sure to come back and post photos of him opening up his gift on Christmas morning. I love seeing the excitement on children’s faces when they get exactly what they want!

My 10y/o is dying for a BB gun. My concern is always safety. There are kids who have died by being shoot by a BB gun, believe it or not. If I win, he will only play with it supervised, only in a safe area, and of course, he MUST understand safety.
