Things I liked:Easy to use and packs a hugh punch using the Gamo PBA ammo. Well constructed and very accurate once sighted. At 36 feet, it can cluster 5 shots in about the size of a nickel. A lot of gun for a reasonable price. Things I would have changed:It was a little tough getting it sighted, but once there, it is dead accurate. Manual is not very user friendly for a novice, however, you can figure it out on your own. What others should know:Make sure you know what is in back of your target (basic gun rules), with PBA ammo this can go through some thin targets. I used a piece of 5/8" plywood in back of the target as a stop. After about 25 shots, the plywood was pretty beat up.
