Got a gift card from my wife and bought a Daisy Red Ryder just for nostalgia. (I wore out two of them as a kid), I'm 73 now. My friends and family had a great time shooting it off my porch until it broke. (The new ones are made in China). I took it apart and all the works were plastic and it had destroyed itself. I remember driving by the factory in Arkansas years ago, It was the size of a large garage. Shame on Daisy for destroying something as American as apple pie and the flag for a few dollars profit.
