"Actually... I kinda like this gun. Granted, I'm a beginner, but still, it's alright. Shoots 1-3 pellets at a time, so it's good for VERY short range. The desciption says it "pierces even the thickest cardboard!" Yeah, no. So far, it's gone through tin foil and (barely) some construction paper. It's ALL plastic, even the barrel, which is weird. Not powerful, not accurate, but fun. I'd say don't buy it, but if you get it free, well don't complain. BTW, if you do get this, read the instructions. HILARIOUS!!! The Land Army Co. needs to get better chinese-english translators."
