Gifts for Boys- Daisy BB Gun #ItsADaisy


This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Christmas is just around the corner and it is getting harder and harder to figure out gifts for boys.  My oldest son isn't really into toys as much anymore and I don't want just to buy him electronics for gifts.  I want him to get out of the house and go and play and he can get some energy out and not just sit around all day.  Plus I really want my son to learn how to be more responsible.  My husband has suggested getting a BB gun for him.  He grew up with them and loved going out with his dad shooting.  Now that my oldest is getting more mature, I thought that it would be a PERFECT gift for him.  It is something that teaches responsibility.  It is something that forces my son to be more mature, and I love that.

I headed to Walmart to get the Daisy Red Ryder BB gun.   It's the perfect one for him, just the right size. I found it in the sporting goods section.  I also picked up some BB's and safety glasses there too.

Here is what I got for them.  I wrapped the gun in some ribbon and got it ready to give to my son.

Since my son needs to learn how to use the gun and to be responsible about it, I made a printable checklist that we will bring out every time.  I think that kids learn much better when they see something visual.  I can say something to him 10 times and it will just go in one ear and out another and he won't listen or get it.  Seeing these rules on a list and him having to physically check them off, I think that it will get through to him.

We headed out to a place that we could go shoot and my husband gave my son his gift, #ItsADaisy.  Isn't his reaction awesome?!  That was 100% real.  His jaw just dropped.  He was so excited to get it.  So if you want to see your child get this kind of reaction, try giving them a BB gun :).

It was so fun watching them bond and watching my husband teach him and show him what to do.

After the few lessons and going through the checklist, we let him try it out.  He was a pro, he did so good!  I love that this is something that he can continue to work at and get better at it!

It wasn't just fun for my son, it was a great activity for my husband (and me, I shot it a few times too).

It was such fun a day out shooting.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  This was the first time ever shooting a gun, there's definitely something about it that's fun!  I was so impressed with how mature my son was with it.  He was so good about listening to his dad and doing what he told him to do.  I'm glad that kids realize that gun safety is very important.  It is also nice to know that Daisy educates roughly one million of America's youth a year through a Ten Lesson Shooting Curriculum about BB gun  use and safety (found here).  The curriculum has been around since 1948.  Make sure to follow Daisy on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on their products.

I would recommend any age group that has never shot a gun before to start with a BB gun. My wife and I purchased one last year and we are in are low 60s. It was such a hoot it didn't take long to move up to a 22LR and my wife purchase her first CCW (Sig P290 9mm). We just purchased our first AR. We still love shooting the BB gun. It's quiet and we can shoot it in the yard on the weekends for practice. It's excellent practice for gun safety and trigger control.
