Both my youngest grandson and his half brother (10 years old) own Red Ryder BB Guns. So really they are both veterans.

I was very surprised how accurate the Daisy 75 anniv. Red Ryder is!

My youngest grandson is 6'2" and still the Red Ryder fits pretty good and he is an excellent shot with it. We did pretty much start shooting at 10 to 18 meters. At 5 meters the Red Ryder is incredibly easy to hit pretty much right where you want to.

You did good with the pics. Curious.....why are all shooters triggering with grip fingers outside the finger lever? There is firmer control and natural finger curl inside the lever.

They both have big hands. A Winchester 1894 they can fit. A Henry rifle, they can fit. I use my hand in the lever and almost think I'd want to add checkering for greater grip control. I fired 40 shots this afternoon on my own shoot and did not miss the target once shooting offhand. those images though are video and if I have problems with these still photos getting de-tuned, the video would be extreme. I did notice how they were gripping but the Red Ryder doesn't have much free board to slip the fingers in.

Checking to see if the range is clear. This is Leo my Maine Coon Cat X Persian. He is a REAL hunter. He will accompany in the woods for miles. In fact if I need to go somewhere I have to take my auto because if I leave the clearing on foot, he will follow.

Okay, on settling the finger lever concern. Now, a cat that acts more like a dog. Unlike dogs, most cats couldn't care less where the parent goes. It's all about what's in the bowl and nap time.

Thanks some more for posting the pics.

Out to start work at the farm. It is late @5:30am. A little earlier the coyotes were howling off in the distance. They do not venture over here often. Wonder why? This is the target I have been using most for the Red Ryder. 2" wide at the base.

The loading gate detail photo and another of the Red Ryder. I have only the Daisy cardboard BB tubes at present as I read they were easier to load.

The tubes are much easier to load. Just tilt and pore. The tube BBs might be prelubed. I don't target shoot the RR as often as I should. My target is the redhead scorpion. They are a nuisance.

Have five other vintage Daisy's that I shoot on occasion to keep the parts moving.
