I use a cardboard box with towels folded up inside and it stops and catches the bbs. You can also use the rubber golf balls you find for practice in the sporting goods section at Walmart. They hop around the yard while you shoot them. Just follow it around at about 5yds and keep shooting. Water ballons filled with air work well too. If you don't seem to be doing well switch to a paper plate nailed to a tree and put a small circle in the middle so you know where you are actually hitting.

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 pyramydair.com: "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.

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.

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