    Me and the wife go christmas shopping today, and pick up a Daisy Ryder BB Gun for Justin. This puppy holds 400 .177 cal bb's, shoots 350fps, and......AND has TruGlo sights!!!!! Did you hear that???? TruGlo sights!!!!!!! I gotta get this thing out from under the bed, and go play in the backyard. I also picked up some safety glasses and a bottle of bb's. I'm gonna make him unwrap the glasses first, than the bb's, and than the rifle AFTER he unwraps all the other socks and crap...hehehe :happy0001:

    "You're gonna put your eye out, kid." ;)

    For Christmas about 10 years ago, when my son was 5 or 6, Santa brought him a Red Ryder. So, we go out in the backyard Christmas morning to shoot at a paper target, with the cedar fence serving as a backstop. He takes his first shot, and the BB ricochets off the wood fence, comes back and nails me in the leg. "Um, okay, let's make a BB trap out of a cardboard box before we shoot anymore."

    :lolz:
