With the Christmas shopping orgy well under way, never forget that the ultimate gifts that keep on giving throughout life for young and old are guns.
For the young boys and girls, cap guns and holsters, nerf guns, toy bows and arrows with the suction cup arrows and other assorted toy guns and associated accessories are the obvious choice.
Whatever you do, dont forget to teach your rootin tootin boys and girls how to quick draw their cap guns and how to twirl them on one finger Roy Rogers style.

I DID buy the 2 kids pellet guns - one in pink for the daughter.
Buy the kids guns for Christmas!
Recently, I heard two women talking about gifts and one said adamantly that her child wanted a sword (for whatever holiday they celebrate I assume). She then mentioned how boys with swords lead to violence by men. Her friend supported that belief by saying “I saw two boys playing with sticks (in a yard). Sticks!” She said how she wanted to stop it immediately because boys playing with sticks would increase the likelihood of violence later in life. Sadly, a male was in this group and he didn’t utter a word.
Was he wearing a red plaid onesie and sipping cocoa?
Next thing you know...............
.........they’ll be running with SCISSORS!!
No, he did have a certain pro sports team cap but I don’t want to turn this into a sports conversation. It is likely coincidental. :-)
I love Ted! Maybe he can join up with Phil Robertson and make a hunting show. Now THAT would be entertainment!
Damn Skippy! The best Christmas toys I ever got were Army related weapons!...maybe why I joined the US Army later in life...anyways...Boys need to be Boys and electronic guns and neft machine guns are the best presents - loud and popping darts across the house makes for a wild, but enjoyable time!
Apparently archery is coming back in phase and style as well - especially for girls thanks to the Hunger Games, Brave, and now the 2nd installment of the Hobbit...
geez....poster boy (or whatever he is) of HOW NOT TO BE!
Probably not going to be on a&e though. LOL! The corporate head shed may have smacked the wrong hornets nest on this one. At least I hope they did.
I heard two women talking
Dangerous to start with.
...and discussion about changing MEN is even more dangerous.
They easily forget who is tasked with protecting the country much less personal protection in a dangerous world.
Pussification isn’t in the dictionary, is it?
Way ahead of you.
1022 for the nephew and niece.
Yup, I still have my little Daisy bb lever-action from way back when. Found it in the back of my closet while cleaning one day, and that thing is tiny.
LOL! Looks like you grew some since you first got it huh? I saw one at Scheels and had to kinda chuckle too cause they did look awful small now. But they were BIG when I was 9 or 10.
We got a 4-gun airsoft “Zombie Hunting” set at K-mart last week. The Red Ryder and two pellet guns are next up for the daughters (already have them). By summer, they’ll be ready for my AR. . .
Straight to the full up .223 or do you have one of them newfangled .22 lr converters. Lot’s cheaper. If you can find the 22 lr ammo.
O NOOOOOO!!!! Ultra-violet tee partyers!!!!!111!!

So here's a caveat: if your kids are anything like these people, maybe you shouldn't buy them guns for Christmas.
Not to mention it won't ricochet off that metal sign you attached your target to. It'll blow clear through it!
10/22 Rugers for everyone.
22LR Upper, as well as the usual 5.56 NATO. What I wish I could find, is one of those Ultramag .50 BMG bolt-action uppers for the AR. . .
I started my two sons shooting at the same time. The oldest was 6 and the youngest was 4. I had to build an arm rest for the 4 year old because he wasn’t strong enough to hold the Ruger MK II with out some support. We fired on a range with two knock down steel silhouettes and 6 knock down steel plates. Youngest discovered that he could knock down the silhouettes if he double tapped them in the forehead. .22s were not strong enough to knock them over with only 1 shot. Two closely spaced shots would do it.
One time he was waiting until this older guy finished shooting. The guy hit about 1 out of 3 shots. When he finished, my son walked up to the line, announced that the range was hot, released the bolt and proceded to double tap both silhouettes and then knock down all 6 plates. He then dropped the magazine, checked the chamber, and announced that the range was clear.
The older guy left. Come to find out later that he had previously been complaining to the range manager about my boys being to young to shoot.
I started “loaning” them guns when they hit 8 years old. 20 gauge Remington shotgun, .22 Daisy rifle, .22 Marlin Papoose, S&W Model 19 in .357 mag, Remington Model 7 youth in .243, Ruger MK II, and two .50 cal muzzle loaders. The sad part was that they thought that these had been gifts and that they could take them with them as they moved away. And their darned Mom supported their position. I tried explaining tht they were underage at the time of the loan so they had been loans and not gifts. The Christmas wrapping paper had only been a decoration and in no way implied that these were gifts.
Darn near cut my weapons inventory in half. Then I lost the remaining in a tragic boating accident.
LOL! Lots of rocks to turn over to find one of those.
There is a opinionated leftist old biddy at he dog park I frequent and we were having a discussion, well I was having a discussion and she was screeching about too many guns in America. I finally had enough of her expert opinion and told her that if she did not want to value her 2nd Amendment rights that was ok but to stay the heck away from mine. I ended the discussion by letting her know I was buying my six year old grandson a .22 for Christmas. She damn near exploded while i walked away laughing.
I don’t like cap guns or suction cup arrows. My kids always got the real thing - bb guns, firearms, or real archery equipment. Real Americans should be comfortable when armed; going around like a helpless liberal is for the Eloi.
