The Red Ryder Carbine-action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle is the gift Ralphie Parker wants (and got) for Christmas and is one of the main motives for the plot of Bob Clark's 1983 film, A Christmas Story. Ralphie tries to get the BB gun through family, school, and Christmas season problems including the dreaded phrase, "You'll shoot your eye out", a bully, and bad grades.
Look! Red Ryder!
In the second scene of the film, "Look! Red Ryder!", Ralphie Parker, Randy Parker, Schwartz, and Flick are looking at the new Christmas toys. Ralphie notices the BB gun and thought to himself that he wanted it.
Bull's Eye Glasses
In the twenty-ninth scene of the film, "Bull's Eye Glasses", Ralphie finally got his BB gun and shoots a paper target on a metal sign and it bounces back and hits him under the eye. Ralphie thinks he shot his eye out but it just hits his glasses and leaves a mark on his cheek. He thinks back to all the times someone has said "You'll shoot your eye out". He lies and says an icicle hit his face after he stepped on his glasses.
