Red Ryder Practice

We wanted to buy something for the older GRANDson's this Christmas that they would both enjoy. Something that they would use and then keep as a reminder of a very special gift from Grandparents. That gift turned out to be made right here in Rogers, Arkansas at the Daisy Airgun Factory.
The Daisy Museum is a landmark here in downtown Rogers, with a complete collection of guns dating back to 1880! Many boys can remember the excitement, the pride, the fun of getting their first airgun. Not a toy, an airgun is ideal for developing shooting and marksmanship skills. Adult supervision is a given and their Dad and Papa spent the week teaching and watching them as they spent many happy hours with target practice!














Please God, don't let them shoot their eye out!

  1. Such fun!! There is nothing like those memories for kids. My dad bought each and every grandson and ahem (daughter) one of these. ;) I am cracking up though because the whole time I was reading your post, I was thinking, "You'll shoot your eye out!" LOL!! Cute cute!

  2. I had to chuckle at Teresa, my same exact thoughts.

    Hope they all enjoy their special gifts.

    Happy New Year,

  3. Such a happy time for boys. My husband still owns the bb gun that was given to him at age 12.

  5. I drove right by that Daisy place last time I was visiting my cousin in Missouri and we went to AR! I could use a gun like that around here in case the raccoons re-nig on their oath.

  7. Awww shoot! (no pun intended) I was going to say "They'll shoot their eye out." My grandkids would love that gift. Only they would shoot my eye out.

  8. Cool, cool, COOL! Every boy (and some girls, like me) need their first air gun!!!! I was always PROUD as punch to be a better shot than most of the boys in that class at camp.
