Things I liked:Fun to shoot. Being a .177, the ammo is cheap. Things I would have changed:Make the cocking aid part of the gun. I never seem to remove it anyway. What others should know:Tough for kids to cock this gun which is probably a good thing.
I let my daughter shoot it in the backyard. I found her and a friend trying to shoot it later (without my permission). I watched for ten minutes--they were only able to cock it once. I probably should have stepped in earlier, but it was too amusing.
