Sharing the Love of Being Outdoors with Daisy Outdoor Products

Living in the country brings so many joys and challenges.  I grew up living in the city as well as the country.  I can truly say I am country girl at heart.  While I grew up with my father hunting and fishing and was taught to shoot a gun at a pretty early age, it has been years since I have actually shot one.

I have great memories of being outside with my family growing up.  We went camping and fishing quite often.  We even went to deer camps together.  Picture me being in a body cast with a broken femur at deer camp, that trip I played lots of cards.  The first time I can remember my Dad trying to teach me to shoot was when we lived outside of Danville and we were shooting over the top of our wood pile.  I can see the clouds in the sky from that day.

Bryan grew up as a city boy but has adjusted to our country life very well.  We have lived in our home in the country for about seven years.  Although he isn’t a hunter, having a gun is pretty much a necessity.  We own a gun but it has been so long since I have shot one, I would be clueless.

Since we have being having issues with coyotes again we decided we would get a BB Gun to target practice.  We have a Daisy Red Ryder currently, so we spent a little time looking and decided on a Daisy hand-held BB Gun.  They are iconic and user-friendly.  While I am not an outdoors woman in some respects, we love spending time together in outdoor family activities.  My children would live outdoors.

Bryan has been wanting a handheld BB Gun so the kids and I decided to get him a gift! (even though we were actually looking to get one for a young friend).  While he is not a kid, he is my 30-something kid at heart.  Daisy Outdoor Products make awesome gifts for kids of all ages, well to clarify, they are recommended for those above the age of 10.

For our family, we don’t wait for one time of year, everyday is the perfect opportunity for gifting.  He was so excited!  The big kids can be just as exited about getting new toys as the little ones; that was so the case with my big kid!  You can see our full shopping experience while at Academy Sports in my #BB4Me Google+ album.

Now was time to find a gift for a real kid.  I headed to our local Walmart to pick-up a Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun and sadly they didn’t have that particular model.  (I should have just gotten it when I was at Academy but too late now).  We decided to go with the Daisy Powerline 880S that our local Walmart did have.  What a perfect gift for a 13-year-old friend!  I am sure they will share the same reaction as did my hubby when the children give him his present.

Gun Safety is extremely important to Daisy; you can read their Ten Shooting Safety Rules to make sure you (or your child) understands the importance of safety.

Does the crisp autumn air bring back good memories?  Do you have any childhood memories of learning to shoot a gun?

  1. Daisy has such awesome products! I’m a country girl so this resonates with me. Glad your hubby loved his gift and I’m sure the other gift will be well received as well.
