I'm looking for a BB or Pellet gun to teach my granddaughter to shoot with. Not looking to spend to much, just want it to last awhile. Is Daisy or Crossman still the names to focus on for something like this?
Dang, I used to walk through my town with my .22 on my way to the river to whack crows. I was only stopped one time by the Cops, once they verified I had an open breach they sent me on my way and wished me well.Yes, most city limits won't allow BB guns, paintball, or airsoft in the back yard.
Those days were gone when you were 10! That was like 60 years ago or something!Dang, I used to walk through my town with my .22 on my way to the river to whack crows. I was only stopped one time by the Cops, once they verified I had an open breach they sent me on my way and wished me well.
Yep, shocked hell out of me. 20 + years ago kids used to shoot in our fenced back yard all the time. One day in the local rag I see article. Guy arrested for this. Was shooting at Starlings going after his fruit trees. Said air guns are a firearm by City law. So I took the the net and damned if they were not correct. I had years before seen signs at my favorite range about them welcoming people who wanted to use air guns. At the time I thought who would go to a range for that? Well now I saw why. As time has gone on a LOT of local jurisdictions have joined this bandwagon. So I warn others before sending the kids to the back yard to shoot, check. If one of my neighbors had called Police when my kids were doing this? I am sure when LEO showed up at the door I would of said yes kids were back there with air guns. Unknown to me at the time I would have at best been schooled with a warning and at worst given a citation to show up in court for it.A BB gun?...
I started my daughter on an airsoft gun.more like 35...ya old fart.
