Nice quiet little pellet rifle or BB gun (for BB's I recommend the good 'ole
Red Ryder model). If you go with the pellet rifle stick with the low power
"pump-up" models like the little Benjamin or Sheridan and go with only a few
strokes (my recoiless RWS farm dog discourager would likely damage aluminum
tubing at that range, since it cranks out 1200 fps). Above all, don't shoot
your eye out.
