Don’t shoot your eye out!

December 28, 2011

Our Swedish exchange student, Michelle, had never seen a gun before she came to Iowa except on TV and in movies (she says gun laws are very strict in her country). We are not hunters, but, like most farmers, we have a few guns for varmint control and trap shooting.
A few weeks ago, we watched the movie A Christmas Story where all Ralphie wants is a Red Ryder BB gun. That gave me an idea. Pow. They still make those guns, so I ordered a pink version. On Christmas morning we opened our stockings and then Bob pulled a long box from a hiding place. Michelle was so excited. She read the instructions and then went outside to shoot at a tin can, denting it on the third try. This gun is not very powerful! But it could shoot your eye out, so be careful kids.
