Will he shoot his eye out?
Unlike Ralphie from the movie, Chantze has been very conscientious about safety and such. I can't get him to use a better posture, but his aim is surprisingly good. In this instance, not having a white Christmas worked to our advantage - the weather has been just lovely, and we were able to spend a couple days outside shooting. Here we are aiming at this 'Hawaaian Punch' container, and after about fifty shots, I felt a richocheted BB bounce off my shoulder. On closer inspection, the plastic punch carton was completely undamaged - the BB's had been bouncing off from it the whole time. I'm a bad 'parental superviser' I guess. We switched over to a beer can at that point.
