That's a nice story. Thanks for sharing. I had many BB guns when I was a kid. Can't remember the first one, but my first CO2 pellet rifle! Wow, I remember the day I got it like it was yesterday. I had moved up into the world of heavy artillery.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
I think all of us have been there; no it might not have been a bb gun but the winds of change gave us direction. the one time or place that infused us into the hobby/sport we enjoy.
To me it was a deer hunt back in 1975 and then the army; I just never seem to get it out of my system
great story brings back memories of my first BB gun which was a daisy as well
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

Thanks for that one!!! Made me smile
Very good article. Was interested in the "American Boys Bill of Rights" in the graphic so I looked it up and made this poster. You can click the graphic in the poster for a high resolution copy of the original from Daisy.

I like this story. Great detail memory.
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
