A Daisy Christmas {Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun} giveaway #bb4me #CBias

Daisy BB Gun giveaway

You may be surprised to see a Daisy BB Gun on my blog!  As one of six girls growing up we didn’t do a lot of hunting or fishing or BB Gun shooting around our house.  My poor brother had to resort to pulling the heads off our Barbie dolls as entertainment. (That’s a true story!) Poor guy & our poor dolls! 

Buuuut if you know my husband it makes perfect sense!  He is an avid outdoorsman.  Hunting, fishing, camping….if it’s outside he is so there!  He is the total opposite of me!  Growing up he had BB guns among other outdoor family activities to keep him busy & out of trouble!

On the other hand the only experience I had growing up with BB Guns was from watching A Christmas Story.  Remember that movie??  “You’ll shoot your eyeball out!”

So when my hubby brought up getting our 11 year old daughter a BB Gun for Christmas I wasn’t too sure about that!  Buuut he convinced me that there is a proper & safe way to handle a BB Gun, and if you follow the safety guidelines, no one is going to shoot their eyeball out. {You can find the 10 shooting safety rules on the Daisy Outdoor Products website.} Here’s a bonus safety tip for me. ;) Everyone should wear safety glasses when BB shooting not just the shooter. My boys went through the Cub Scout program, and during Summer Day Camp they both earned their BB Gun Belt Loop. I was helping out one day during the BB Gun shooting. They had everyone including parents & leaders wearing safety glasses. One of the BBs actually hit my safety glasses! I am so glad I had them on. Gun safety is always first and wearing your safety glasses is a must!

This is my daughter, Cailey.  She is a girly girl most of the time, but this hunting season she has been her dad’s sidekick!  They are trying to get a big buck off our property but no luck so far. She is going to be so surprised to find a BB Gun under the tree.  Really is there any more of an iconic Christmas gift than a Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun? So my hubby headed off to his favorite store, Cabela’s to do a little Christmas shopping.  {You can check out his entire shopping trip over on google+.}

He came home with a Pink Carbine Model 1998 Daisy BB Gun! I didn’t even know they made pink BB Guns!  My girly outdoor girl is going to LOVE this! :) He also picked up some extra BBs, safety glasses & some targets.  She is all set!
