By Jonathan from USA on 2013-06-10 18:55:10Things I liked:Value for the money. Pretty accurate at 10 yards, not bad at 20.
Things I would have changed:The scope. The 4 x 15 scope it comes with is the worst. scope. ever. I swapped it out for a Bushnell 4 x 32 Rimfire and am pretty happy.
What others should know:At 10 yards, Crosman Destroyer EX gives very good groups. At longer ranges they really give a shotgun pattern, though. Crosman Premier Hollow Point is much better. Max effective range seems to be 25 yards, and even at that distance I probably miss more squirrels than I hit. 20 yards might be a better number for effective range (allowing for the fact I'm a n00b and not a good shot yet). At the 50-yard distances that I'm currently dealing with for ground squirrels, I'd be better off throwing rocks at them. A really good shot might be able to hit one at that range, of course, but still, this just isn't the right weapon for that distance. If I'd known as much a couple months ago as I know now, I would have bought a gas piston rifle in the first place, but I do plan on getting one. I'll teach my kids to shoot the 880. Like I said, it's great at 10 yards, and they can start there.
