BrianA Posted May 2, 2008 Report Share Posted May 2, 2008 Although not a fishing theme - it's still outdoorsy. My other Dad bought my 8 yr old a Daisy Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas this past year. Had an issue with Ian's Red Rider back in March. He thought he killed the rifle every kid wants for Christmas that his Pappa gave him. My guy had been running around the house - killing Nazis & liberating Europe from oppression for about a month dry firing the rifle. When he wasn't doing that he was hunting deer, bear, and elk from the safety and comfort of our suburban home. The next events were the cocking-lever did not work and the loading door jammed. I looked up Daisy via the net and got a number to call. The wonderful lady in customer service told me after I explained the whole story including Ian's abuse by dry firing his weapon so much, "Just send it back to us so we can look at it and make sure to include your UPS mailing address". My next question "Will they call me w/ an estimate and tell me what actually broke before the repair it?" She replied "Why no sir, we're gonna git your boy a new one sent out just as fast as we git the old one. It really shouldn't have dun him like that anyway!" The next day I sent it, again including a small note describing the symptoms and how we believe it happened. I get a call 4 days later from Clyde @ Daisy Air Rifles in Arkansas "Mr Bryne, we got your boy's rifle and the lever was no real fuss but the load door's still jammin'. We're gonna gitcha another one buddy." "Okay" I replied. "What do I owe you all for shipping costs?" "Don't you worry 'bout that buddy, we'll send your boy's rifle out the next day or two, okay buddy?" states Clyde. "Alright, I appreciate ya' bud - thanks again" I quipped. "No trouble a'tal buddy, y'all take care and enjoy that rifle buddy" Clyde finished with. The only part is you'll have to imagine your own accent of the other parties involved. I'm from Chicago so you get mine. Apparently Home Cooking and good manners weren't lost on the nice folks down @ Daisy Air Rifles. All "Buddy's" were included to paint the picture of just that kind of hospitality. My 8 year old rcv'd his rifle after vacation w/ explicit instruction that all Germans, Japanese, or any other WWII enemies of the United States must be thwarted w/ his own toy guns from now on. The same applies for hunting wild animals. The Daisy sits in the box in the garage awaiting his next trip to Kentucky. What a company!!!!!
