So as some of you might recall,

I'm a big Jean Shepherd fan, have over 1100 of his radio shows and listen to them in earbuds all night when I awaken due to bathroom needs or general anxiety/insomnia.

So of course I watched A Christmas Story for about the 300th time today and noticed something pretty interesting in light of recent events. At the very end, when Ralphie goes to sleep, cradling his Red Ryder BB gun, the barrel is nowhere to be seen, although the stock protrudes from the left and would be pointed at his brother sleeping in th next bed. My guess is that they cut off the stock and placed it well from a cinematic POV, but non-threatening,since the whole point of the film was that he came close to shooting his eye out. I could be wrong about this, but my family noticed it as well when I brought it to their attention.

Guns,man...always dangerous.

1. Where did you get the radio shows?

That would make a great Christmas gift for next year! Thanks!
