I really wanted a BB gun when I was a kid, and finally I received one for Christmas. This was a nice gun. You could load a whole slew of BB's, or you could load pellets one at a time. It was fun. I used it with friends to shoot birds. Not a very comely activity, but mostly I missed. One time I actually hit a bird, and was so distressed that I didn't shot at birds after that. I would also use the gun to shoot at army men. One time, I was watching t.v. with my gun in hand, pretending to shoot at characters on the screen. The gun actually went off, and hit the t.v. console. Our t.v. had a large consul, so I didn't damage the working mechanism at all, but I left a BB dent in the wood.
Shortly after that my BB gun came up missing. I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked and looked with no luck.
However, several years later I did find it. It was in the fruit room, above the heating ducts that were above your head. It was close to the furnace so the duct was very large there and afforded a good hiding place. I only had it a couple days though, when it disappeared again. I never did find it again.
