You'll shoot your eye out, kid

Perhaps it's just the rose-tinted memories of one of my favorite Christmas movies, but I don't recall the trailer to A Christmas Story being so... dark.

If all you really want for Christmas is an "official Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time", well I have some good news and some bad news for you. Daisy does indeed still manufacture a Model 1938 Red Ryder BB gun, and the shot capacity has even gone up to 650 rounds. Tragically, however, no compass. And we won't even go into "the thing that tells time".

On the other hand, you can still own your own "leg lamp" via one of two ways. You can do it the old-fashioned way and win yourself "a major award", or you can shell out a couple hundred dollars American and get your very own fishnet-stockinged holiday memory shipped directly to you in a box or crate marked "FRA-GI-LEE" with a "Major Award" certificate suitable for framing.

If you really want to have a bb gun, wyou can always go for a high quality airsoft gun from Tokyo Marui. They are the largest international manufacturer around the world and their guns have a reputation for being consistently reliable and durable. Same goes for Crosman who are a well known American manufacturer and distributor of airsoft guns and BB guns.
