Feltham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/24/2015 -- There are many firm fans of the seasonal film 'A Christmas Story' – and this time of year is more appropriate to show appreciation for it than ever. Recent reports highlight that fans can now see more of the film than ever before – in the form of the Red Ryder BB Gun used in the production itself, which has just gone on display at A Christmas Story House and Museum!
The museum is testament to how popular the film and associated Christmas culture is, with the acquired BB gun adding a highly important prop to the current collection. The gun is original and was custom-made at the time; a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shoot range model. In the film it is used by Ralphie Parkie and is set to attract much attention.
Rather than a commemorative replica, the real thing is obviously exciting. A number of visitors are already getting ready to view the gun and it is expected to become a permanent feature of the museum which is based in Cleveland, Ohio. Just BB Guns are enthusiasts in the area and a spokesperson had this to say:
"The official Red Ryder gun going on display seems to summarize so much of what is good about BB guns and how much appeal they have. An attractive model, fond memories and a trusty aim – what could be more enigmatic? We are very glad that A Christmas Story museum managed to get the original gun for display too, as it is an important historical and cultural artifact as well as a beautiful model."
