Things I liked:The balance,feel and ease of cocking are great for a beginning shooter. I've been shooting for years, this is just a "Hoot to Shoot". It's no too picky about what ammo I use. I like the sights and it's trigger too. Accuracy is fine for casual plinking out to 25 yds. or so. Priced just right. Things I would have changed:The blonde color of the stock is not my favorite. A little more power please. What others should know:Any beginner would love this, easy to cock, easy to aim and easy to shoot.
