How To Attack A Pineapple

CaliAir and Hamilton (the Swedish James Bond) take a closer look at the Chinese Hand Dragon springer dart gun. This ancient gun is a replica of the early Hand Dragons circa 500 bc (or earlier). This is a novelty dart springer and its date of manufacturing and place of origin is unknown. It was purchased in 2016 from China. Today’s mission is to shoot the dreaded pineapple. Pretty sure a pineapple WAS harmed in the making of this video. Viewer discretion is advised. The use of all the necessary safety gear was utilized in this operation.

Thanks to all our new and OG subscribers. You guys are the BEST!

The Chinese Hand Dragon PLUS Cowboy Chad vs CaliAir

Cowboy Chad visits CaliAir in the Nevada desert and conduct a friendly competition with the The Buck (of course). Plus CaliAir shows off his 12th/13th century Chinese Hand Dragon – perhaps the worlds first “springer” pre-dating the Daisy and everyone else!

Daisy BB Gun Cleaning Kit

In the 1950’s Daisy offered a BB Gun Cleaning Kit. It fit nicely on a stand that was also made available at this time. Unlike firearms air rifles tend not to need the same amount of cleaning. Some even say they require no cleaning at all relatively speaking. Mostly this is due to the power source. Air is cleaner than gunpowder. But it was an excellent excuse to not have to put your gun away and tinker with it maybe aside dad while he cleaned his rifle.

Daisy History

There are a couple of sources online and in print that gloss over the history of Daisy. Details are hard to come by and there are more questions than clear answers. The company began advertising in the late 1800’s if not certainly by the early 1900’s. A good portion of the puzzle can be answered by observing the various ads over the years.

This is not meant to be a concise article on Daisy history. The images included are a look into the rich history of the Daisy bb gun and the bb gun industry as a whole. I will update this page as I get more information ie dates, places, locations.
