Daisy 1938B Red Rider
After using it for past 6 months I found it will kill blackbirds and is an excellent for indoor (garage) shooting. I made a bullet stop out of plywood and lined the inside with carpet foam to prevent any noise and bounce back of pellets. I found that the Crosman Copperhead pellets are best.
The only issue I had was the horizontal sight alignment at 15 yards being off an inch at target and the fixed sights can NOT be adjusted. So I just fix my aim 1 inch off center and get good hits.

Received my Red Ryder in the mail and it does not work. Big waste of time and money. Now I need to go and return the thing to the store and I will cost me more $$$. Very disappointing.

fun and useful
I bought this gun to keep the Squirrels off my bird feeders. It is fun and useful. Low cost too.
My son is a better shot than me so I am practicing!

We purchased two of these for my little brothers, and they lasted a few days. First, the plastic lever broke while one of them was trying to cock it, and the stocks wobble something horrible. Don't waste the money!

I too still have my old Red Ryder BB gun from back in the '50's, and still shoot it on occasion... However, 60 yards is a bit far, and I rather doubt it will have much, if any, effect on deer at that range... A BB gun may very well work fine for your needs, just a "little sting" to get the deer to vacate the area....but, if your distance is 60 yards, I'd suggest getting one with a bit more power than the Red Ryder... I would think that the Red Ryder may work for you out to 25, or maybe 30 yards, but not much further than that.
id say the effective range is about eighty yards for that size target, although i wouldnt shoot lead pellets are deer, use some alloy pellets because this probally will break the hideif its close enough
The Red Ryder BB gun.......... I haven''t looked to see for sure, but I'd guess in the neighborhood of 300 fps.... And this is a "one-cock-one-shot" BB gun... You cock it once and shoot it, then cock it again and shoot it again... After the initial cock of the lever, it's cocked...and no more "cocking movements" of the lever will have any effect.. After it's cocked, it's cocked... It is not a "pump-up" gun.
