Daisy Factory ca. 1895,

By the 1930’s they gained international fame with their marketing of very popular all metal BB gun. The gun received its name from then general manager, later to become president of the new Daisy Manufacturing Company, Lewis Cash Hough. The first time Hough fired the lever-action prototype rifle he exclaimed, “Boy…It’s a Daisy.”

Don’t you shoot your eye out.
