Things I liked:I learned to shoot on one of these, and it's an awesome little gun even now. It's easy to cock, and even my 6 year old sister could work it. Solid construction, my friends and I abused the heck out of it in it's years of service- and all parts are still good Things I would have changed:Offer a changeable stock for teaching older shooters, it's a little small for a 16 year old :) But for the price, absolutely nothing. What others should know:If you're looking for something to teach a younger child (4-10) to shoot, this is perfect. For other's, I'd recommend something a tad larger.
