Things I liked:Easy Pump action, decent heft, pretty powerful Things I would have changed:Wood instead of plastic. The plastic makes it look and feel like a toy, which it is not. I'm not pleased with the sites and it doesn't appear to be very accurate, but for what you pay, it's an awesome little plinker and powerful enough to ward off varmint's out of the garden. Of course I do this with minimal pumps to just scare 'em off, but if they keep returning, I may have to pump it up to show them I mean business, lol! What others should know:No... just be safe and use common sense. It's a fun gun to shoot, but it's powerful enough, fully pumped, to do some serious damage.
