Forty  Rod SASS 3935

My new BB gun.

Recommended Posts

I went and bought a new Daisy Red Rider 70th Anniversary BB gun yesterday...sort of a protest agains the new "lets paint toys guns pretty colors syndrome" sweeping our state...and I gotta tell you, I'm really disappointed.

 

Poorly made of inferior materials.

 

A cheap, easily-broken, and totally ugly SAFETY.

 

A POS sticker on the stock to tell folks it's a "commemorative".

 

A front end loading system that's nothing like I remember from my original.

 

Dark, plastic finished wood that looks painted, not stained.

 

A really stiff and nasty thong (Which I have already replaced) on the saddle ring.

 

A box covered with warnings and information in English and Spanish.

 

It's not a REAL Daisy Red Rider BB gun, it's a remodeled, PC fake..

 

Disappointed. :angry:

I have one too that I bought a few years ago. At least it has a wooden stock, but the rest is pretty sad. I also have a real old JC Higgins that was pretty cool. Even has a fake hammer, Plastic woodgrain stock. I had it hanging up in my reloading room and went out to do some loading the other day and it was on the floor! Fell down butt first and broke the plastic stock. Probably never be able to find another one.

My son bought one several years ago that's a bit nicer than what you describe. Still, it's not like what I remember as a kid.

 

Just don't shoot your eye out!

I hate to ask this, 4T, but... was it made in China...? :(

 

The Kid won one at a Ducks Unlimited dinner many years ago... still has it hangin' in his bedroom over a poster of Rooster Cogburn, with a caption beneath it sayin' "You'll shoot yer eye out, Kid!" ;)

bb's old and kinda new

 

I gave my grand daughter the old RR bb gun at the bottom of the pix, and a few years later it this old cowboys heart good to be sitting in the living room and watch my granddaughter fly into the house muttering something under her breath about dang catz, and grabbed her "new" bb gun and was cocking it as she was running fer the back door....only to be followed with a blaze of "piffs", and a heard of squealing catz making for the back fence.....came back in and wiped down her rifle and placed it back in her room and returned to play with the rest of the kidz like the lady she is.

 

 

Made my heart swell with pride.....

 

curley

 

ps:when they moved to Milasyia she asked me to take care of her gunz while she was gone...

Here's a real BB gun! Obviously once owned by Marilyn Monroe according to the initials. Seriously though, I thought I had a bear rifle when I got one.
