    I would call or write the company. Telling them its a lie and it's not 100% accurate.

    A Christmas story is a cautionary tale and why everyone always says “you’ll shoot your eye out” the irony being it was an icicle that hit his face.....very similar to my first hk21e belt dump last winter.

    No, it was a ricochet of a BB that hit him ... he told his mother that it was an icicle.

    Anything that upsets the whacko lefties is a good thing in my book.

    My younger son has been turning objects into guns since he could walk. You can't deny nature.

    Lady get a fkn GRIP WOULD YA.... [​IMG]

    A photographer is defending the inclusion of a BB replica in a baby’s photo shoot that was inspired by “A Christmas Story.”

    Fox News reports that Coffee Creek Studio’s Amy Haehl shared a photo of a baby photographed with glasses and a replica BB gun to keep with the theme, causing backlash from many social media users:

    One Facebook user responded, “Will now unfollow you. Who the hell would take a picture of a baby and a gun just for money. Such a waste since you are so talented. Think hard about your lack of principles.”

    Another wrote, “Also unfollowing and unliking you. Extremely distasteful…. Guns are never ‘cute’, not even as a prop or movie reference. Disgusting. The gun culture in this country is a disgrace.”

    I don't have a problem with the gun but the picture is kinda creepy. Looks like something Celine Dion would approve of. And we're supposed to believe that a mom who dresses her baby boy in a pink rabbit costume is going to let him have a BB gun someday. Character pictures with babies are weird, if they grow up to be furries or whatever they can take character pictures then.

    how do you prefer your babies photographed? I thought it was a great photo but I loved the movie as well so maybe I'm biased

    That’s a good movie. Shows a child with imagination which is sadly lacking in today’s society.
