When's the last time you shot a Red Ryder? Probably too long if you're anything like me. For the price it's great value for a ton of fun.
They're also decent for home defense. I know, it sounds funny. But think about it: Do you think you could advance on someone while they're shooting bb's at your head? If you think you could then please contact me and we'll give it a try.
So I made a quick and cheap mod on my bb gun by putting a laser pointer on it that I bought at a dollar store for $1. It's accurate from 6-10 feet and enables me to fire rapidly from the hip without using the sights.
