I kind of cheated...
I've been to Sanibel Island about a bazillion times having grown up about 90 minutes from there. It's my vacation "go to" and recommendation for peeps. It's sort of where he's from. I believe everyone in that area knows everything there is to know about that movie.

On/Off Topic-
At the age of 8, my first rifle was a black plastic Daisy, soon followed by a Red Ryder. The plastic was more accurate and hit harder.
At the age of 10, my next rifle was a Benjamin Sheridan .177 pellet. Used it on squirrels w/no problems whatsoever (pumped at 10 strokes of course)

-Whoot

The cool thing about my Daisy BB gun was the Pledge of Safety molded on to the plastic buttplate:
"I pledge myself to protect people,animals and property in my community by always aiming and shooting my rifle safely"
I always took that Pledge seriously, and would give a world to have that particular gun back and like new--I carried and shot mine till it literally fell apart one day, just plain worn out. My mom would drop me off on the edge of town with my Daisy (the woods were not very far from our house), a little satchel backpack with a sandwich and something to drink, and my pockets full of those old clear serrated-edged plastic tear-with-teeth Daisy BB packets, and I would just walk into the woods and go on my own safari. Wouldn't come home till I ran out of ammo.
What a great time that was.

Getting one of those (The movie) will only convince you that you need one of these (The Real McCoy).



I haven't seen Black Bart hanging around, but I've pretty much trained the neighbor's dog to stay out of the trash cans!

My dad worked construction and as a farm hand so we lived in the country until I started school. Then we moved to New Ross Indiana when I was in the 8th grade we moved to nearby Mace.

Back long before the movie, I got my son a "Red Ryder" BB gun. We carried it in the rod locker of my bass boat for years. I don't know how many "stick monsters" and just plain floating junk he and I shot over the years with it. If finally rusted so badly, we had to throw it away, and replaced it with something else. I'm going to have to get another one just for grins and giggles. Shoot, I've still got a box of 1,000 BB's in those clear plastic packs someone mentioned. No sense in wasting them.

And that thing had power. It would fling a BB clean out of sight on the river. Depending on how much you elevated the barrel, you would see the BB strike the water for a LONG way. I've heard the max range is 195 yards, but it sure looked farther than that more than few times. Of course the water had to be flat still to see the strike.

It also had enough power to kill snakes. I had no idea, and would shoot at them just to run them off, until I killed a couple. Since I don't really have anything against snakes, I left them alone after that.

I laughed until I cried the first time I saw the movie.

My first BB wasn't a Red Ryder, but it was a Daisy. I remember it had a "Scope" on it, but I can't remember if it actually had any magnification, or was just a plastic tube with a "crosshair" in it. I got into trouble twice with it. One time I shot it in the house (I didn't know it was loaded! ) and lost it for a week. Then the second time I accidently (It really was.) shot my sister with it. Who knew a BB would go through an empty cigarette pack? I lost it for a month that time.
