Things I liked:Easy to load. Very effective for close range shooting. Good at Rodent and pesty bird control at close range.
Things I would have changed:Would make a longer shell to hold more shot. Have different shot variety sizes.
What others should know:Very easy to load. Good pattern at close distances.
Things I liked:convenience
Things I would have changed:sell the shot cups so we can reload. They are difficult to find after they are used, but if you can find them you can reuse them. Why make us scrounge when we are gladly willing to pay you for these back seals/shot cups
What others should know:The shells can be reloaded so don't throw them away like Gamo wants you to do. You can reload with different size shot, even sand or tiny glass beads.
Things I liked:I like the concept of having a shotgun option for airguns.
Things I would have changed:The ammo quality. I have gone over the other reviews and did not see one which dealt with discovering what is in the factory load. What I found when I dis-assembled one of these was a total lack of quality and a revealed that these are not as advertised. The shotshell contained 20 pellets ranging in size from .059" to .088". (# 9 shot has a nominal diameter of .079"). The actual weight of the shot charge was 9.2 grains. Only 6 of the 20 pellets could be remotely considered as # 9. The average diameter of all 20 pellets was only .069" , and many of those 13 pellets were considerably smaller than that. The point is, the pellets used to make up the shot charge here are apparently not standard quality #9 shot, but a mixture of all sorts of shot with no uniformity at all. The predominance of smaller shot makes the killing power of the charge all the more ineffective at any range beyond 5 yards. The weight variation of the shot charge was also found to be large when I weighed the shotshells.
What others should know:There is no reason these should be as costly as they are. They seem filled with reject shot of all sorts. I am reloading my hulls with # 8-1/2 shot which weighs out at an actual shot charge of 17.5 grains for 18 pellets. The factory shells with that actual shot charge of 9.2 grains gave a velocity of 814 fps. My reloads were considerably slower at 551 fps but considering the limited range and killing power, I do believe the much heavier payload will be more effective than the factory offering. The factory load showed reasonable shot density at 10 yards for hitting a squirrel sized target at that range, but not enough for any reasonable expectation at killing it. My reloads did just as well in pattern density with the larger and heavier shot of uniform size, but I still have no confidence in reliably killing a squirrel sized target beyond 5 yards.
