the best way to do target practice with the red rider is to make a few can pyramids and put water in the can's the see how many u can knock down

According to "lever-action spring rifle" "perfect for plinking, shooting paper targets and for training new shooters" It shoots BBs only--holds 650 at a time. It shouldn't have any trouble with soda cans. I don't know if it's powerful enough to penetrate thicker cans. I've got a BB pistol that won't shoot through steel cans (soup, large cat food cans) but will penetrate aluminum cans (soda, small cat food cans). Cardboard boxes shouldn't be much trouble. I've destroyed the front of a corrugated cardboard box with my pistol at 295 fps (feet per second). The Red Ryder is 350 fps. Yes, there are better, more accurate, more powerful BB guns, but the Red Ryder is a classic and a good starter.

You'll Shoot yer eye out! ;P
I have one and it is great it can do what you want and more its extremely accurate. I think that it is air powered.

the crossman 760 is a lot better.

it can break skin and kill small birds so it could possibly puncture a box
