BB Guns are the Best Gifts for Girls

I happen to think I will be considered the best mom this year at Christmas. I usually have the best Christmas present ideas and this year I will not be disappointing my children. I want my kids to have the cool Christmas presents because, as we all know, kids compare everything with their friends. I have the perfect gifts for boys and the perfect gifts for girls selected.

I grew up in rural Iowa and happen to know I had perhaps the best childhood ever. I was surrounded by farms, cows, pigs, dirt, boys, horses, dirt bikes and guns. My brothers had BB guns, my friends had BB guns and I had BB guns. We were all allowed to collect old tin cans, hub caps ans whatever we could locate and line them up along the fences and target practice on these rusty old finds. We were not allowed to shoot each other or shoot any animals and eye protection had to be worn at all times! Those were the rules and we all followed them.

Who would you gift a Daisy to this season?

Since I don't have my father around today to educate my children on gun safety, I will defer to the experts at Daisy. “Daisy educates roughly one million of America’s youth a year through their Ten Lesson Shooting Curriculum about BB gun use and safety FOUND HERE .” Daisy's educational curriculum has been around since 1948, so I absolutely trust them. I trust them even more because my father bought me a Daisy BB gun when I was old enough.

A Daisy BB gun is a good fit for my family because we are a perfect blend of country and city. I'm a country girl, stuck in the city and well, my husband is a city boy, who likes to think he can be a country boy. He loves to shoot the Daisy BB guns as much as the kids do, especially since he was never allowed to have one when he was a child. My son received his first Daisy BB gun when he was 10 and it is well loved now. He is ready for an upgrade just as his sister is ready for her very first Daisy BB gun.

Can you believe they have PINK Daisy BB guns?

I was so excited to gift my daughter with her very first PINK Daisy BB gun. At the same time I upgraded my son and my husband will continue to shoot with the Daisy Red Ryder since it is legendary! I was able to head to my local Walmart and select a pink Daisy BB gun for my daughter, a surprise Daisy upgrade for my son, ammunition AND safety goggles.

I was very pleased with my choices for my children as the Daisy BB guns I selected have low-powered mechanisms, low-speed modes and low capacity. The low mechanism means your child will be able to hit a target, but the BB does not have enough power to bounce back (or up or over) and hit something (or someone) else. The mode is low speed and not a high powered shooting BB gun. The low capacity means these Daisy BB guns will only hold a small number of BBs in their barrels. In my opinion, the Daisy rifles are the best air rifles for kids. The combination of all these factors makes it tops in overall safety.

The Daisy BB fun is perfect for my daughter to learn the ins and outs of shooting and it is well suited for her age. This is the best BB gun to teach her proper gun handling procedures and marksmanship. She did awesome too! On her third try, she hit the bulls-eye!

How to Make a Red Dot Sight{Scope} for your BB gun

How to Make a Red Dot Sight{Scope} for your BB gun

If you are looking an easy transition for your young child to learn how to shoot accurately on their new Daisy Carbine, I would suggest creating a simple laser Red Dot Sight{Scope} for your child's BB gun. Simply purchase a small Laser LED Keychain Light, gather some legos (which everyone has hanging about the house anyway) and tape. Create a ledge out of the legos for the laser keychain to be nestled on. Tape the laser keychain on the lego stand and then tape the lego stand directly onto the scope area of the Daisy BB gun. Tape the laser button down and this will greatly aide your child while they are learning to aim their new Daisy carbine.
