    Are they as freaking difficult to cock as the kid-sized ones? It would be pretty damn funny if they increased the force necessary to move that lever to give adults the same trouble the original gives kids.

    Made a better boy of you.
    At least I hope it did.
    Yes. I struggled for a couple of days.
    After that, meh.

    Sissies, I was stringing and drawing a Fred Bear 65 lb. recurve bow. Cocking a bb gun??? I only had a Cub, but I had access to a Red Ryder, which made me pellet gun crazy.

    I had a Daisy with a more modern design - which gave me a higher rate of fire. My best friend had a Red Ryder and was envious.

    Due to someone passing in the family, I recently got some of my old guns back. Never had the Red Ryder but I got my Daisy model 103 back. Along with my Sears (Ithaca) .22 and Kmart model 151 20 gauge.

    What company made the shotguns for Montgomery Ward, way back when? Labeled as a "Hercules"? My best guess was Ithaca.

    IDK, I had a J.C. Higgins 20 ga. full choke, which, IIRC, was also sold by Monkey Wards. Might have been Sears, though.

    Not Ithaca. It was either J. Stevens Arms and Tool, or Johnson Arms and Cycle.
