I wonder if little kids still get BB guns? When I was a kid, the biggest day in a boy's life was the day he got his first BB gun. I can remember the day I got mine. It was a Daisy, and was styled after the model 94 Winchester 30-30. I got it when I was about 7. My dad used it to teach me responsibility and gun safety. My parents told me that if I used it responsibly, and if I were a good kid in other areas, when I turned 11, I would be allowed to buy a 22, which is a real rifle. I can remember what a motivation that was for me to stay on track. Also, I can remember that few things in life I cherished more than that 22 I had to wait 4 years for.
