I'm 80 years old. I still have a gun like that in my closet, that I bought for my son when he was a few years old. He's in his mid forties now. Every now and then I take it out, dust it off, and enjoy giving the Daisy a little work-out.
I never had one myself, dad didn't see any sense in them so it was a .22 for me. I did buy one for my grandson's first gun though. He had fun with it until graduating to adult pellet guns and now has a small collection of sporting arms via me.
