A Christmas Story

Yes Virginia, there really was a Red Ryder Carbine Air Rifle, just not exactly the way Ralphie described it in the movie "A Christmas Story."

First is a 1940 ad from the Montgomery Ward catalog.

Here is a flyer from Daisy.

This is a 1940 ad from the Kingsport Times News.

And a story about Daisy's air rifle tester, also from the 1940 Kingsport Times News.

And finallly, a 1952 ad for Kingsport's B.F. Goodrich store.
