I bought a couple of these for my boys for Christmas this year. They are a whole lot easier to pump than the cheaper version and I was quite surprised at the accuracy. After I sighted in the scopes on them they were able to consistantly hit popsickle sticks at ~20 yards with them. Loading pellets into them is a pain in the butt but they are most accurate with the little lead pills. We use the Crossman Destroyer pellets almost exclusively as they seem to be the most accurate in most of the pellet rifles we have. I also have a Ruger AirHawk that is just plain fun to shoot and it will take out a lot of small game inside of 50 yards. If nothing else have some fun with it!
