Things I liked:Really accurate, this gun doesn't lie. If you're missing the target it isn't the gun, just keep practicing. Nice heft and balance. Easy & fun to use. I like the single-pump action vs. a multi pump — keeps it simple and consistent. Things I would have changed:The plastic grips are fine. But I am still getting wood grips because I like the look and feel better. They are also a bit big. What others should know:You'll probably need to adjust the sights. It's not a really "powerful" gun (with wadcutters it often doesn't puncture a plastic water bottle @ 30m — maybe with pointed heads it would) but if that's what you're looking for this isn't the gun you want. If you just want to hit targets, you won't be disappointed.
