"i got this gun about two weeks ago, and it is a GREAT spring gun. it has good range, although i would recommend .25+ bb's for more accuracy. the shell holder is terrible, however, the shells fall out the minute you flip the gun. also, do NOT use the strap, buy a separate one if you need to, but this one is only good for dropping the gun; now, the gun is hard hitting, descent range, and shoots across my yard, (which is 2.5 acres ). i would recommend for Spring wars, but nothing more than that."
