Things I liked:When I was allowed to start carrying a gun hunting this was the one my Step-Dad handed me. It is very accurate, and what I killed killed my first squirrel with. Now, it is what I have fun on the weekend with my children. Things I would have changed:The only thing I would change is the sights. They are really easy to get bumped off. I would make the rear peep sight standard on all pump models. What others should know:If yo want to see the excitement in your child's face when they plink their first target full of holes their first time out, well, this is the air riffle for the job. So, load up and have some fun, and please be safe.
