Things I liked: The price, the size, almost too easy to cock. I wish I had bought this for my stepson a long time ago. I got him the Umarex Morph first and this gun is much easier for him to operate. He weighs about 50 pounds and can cock this gun easily. The trigger is also very light.

Things I would have changed: The trigger creep is long but at this price point its not an issue because there is no real competition size-wise.

What others should know: This is THE gun for your entry level shooter after they have mastered the red rider.

Things I liked: I just received the Ruger Explorer. I ordered it for grandchildren ages 9 to 13 years. While I haven't shot it yet, the fit, finish, sights, size, cocking energy required and design look excellent. It will be perfect for adolescent age kids to learn shooting.
