Things I liked:The rifle handles very well. The cocking is pretty strong and might definitely be too strong for old or young shooters. It shoots very accurate and can definitely knock a squirrel out of a tree (or a bird feeder) at 50-100 ft! If you hit them in the right place, they won't get up. Things I would have changed:I'd like to see the guns have several pellet clips, rather than just the one. It was hard to set it right at first until after many tries. It ought to have some sort of "click" or feel so you know when it's in proper position.
