"This a a great gun for its size it has helped me many timed as a 'last resort' gun. Although I do not recommend spring guns,I use it along with my gas pistol and aeg m4. I love the size because i simply hide it in my vest pocket. It has come in handy for me when my other guns were out of ammo and I didn't have time to reload. The opponents were above cover because they saw me "reloading" I had reached into my magazine pouch,pulled it out,and got them to call their hits! Anyway I do recommend this gun not just for backyard practice but field use as well"
