Unfortunately we don’t appreciate the past until it’s gone.
Yes I was lucky...Thanks Dad who had 5 boys😊👍🏻
Spend many of times putting the butt of the gun on the ground and with two hands at the top of the barrel cocked those barrels. I was 8 - 10 yr old. Fortunately the butt didn’t break.

I need a strap for my model 40 with the flat ring. I have the authentic bayonet and tip.
Thanks for reaching out, I’m new at this. Been collecting for 3 months😅

Currently, and I hope I’m done ‘cause it’s costing me, have the model 104, 40, 140, 98 and a really beautiful restored 1894 spittin image and a restored Gold Buffalo Bill 30 / 30👍🏻😊

If you have some beautiful Daisy’s military guns I’ll be interested in a few months. Just don’t tell the wife I bought another gun.😂

Wow!  You were a very lucky young boy to have a Model 21 double barrel!

In the 1940's after the war we had to be contended with a Red Ryder, Model 25 etc. [if you were lucky].all made by Daisy. I got my Red Ryder  as a gift for selling seed packets.

I was born in 1962 South Georgia / North Florida area. I had the model 21 as a 9 yr old hunting the woods😊. We all had guns. I cocked it all the time. Loved the gun

Daisy had a lot of bb gun ads with a Father & Son in them, with a number of different bb guns. In spite of some  posters  thinking the double barrel's were made for adults I believe they were for kids probably  in the 10-14 yr. old's. Not many families in my area could afford one, none of the kids i grew up with had one.

Thanks for that link to the Popular Mechanics ad. I noticed one of the ads had a date of 1939. Back in the old days I always liked looking at the Daisy ads and I remember the ad for the single shot Daisy . It was $1.25. On this site I once saw an for the same single shot and it was $1.00.

Land here in NW OH is selling for $8-$10,000 an acre...if decent buildings add another $2000...and you better buy fast.

Interesting story, Marv.  That $2,000 would be $36,872, or $492/acre in 2020 dollars.  Sounds like a pretty good deal.

That was a LOT of money back in 1938....SORRY !!!! Have to tell this story. My dad bought our 75 Acre farm in 1938 for $2000. He had $15 in the bank and borrowed the rest from the auctioneer who was selling it as a forecloser. Dad never signed a paper...just a hand shake.  How does that song go..."Times they are a changing..."
