1. The overall gun size felt good, was not oversized, and felt good in my grip for aiming and firing.
1. The 15XT gun did not come with an owners manual or instructions on the package on how to load nor was there a diagram pointing to or illustrating where to load.
2. Had to search Internet for loading instructions.
3. Actual loading is the most ridiculous awkward tedious nearly microscopic patience-testing operation requiring the hands of a skilled surgeon.
4. The gun barrel has no markings or arrows guiding the gun owner to "Load Here."
5. Took me 30-40 minutes and several websites to finally learn how to load the gun.
6. Loading the gun requires some sort of funnel tool and makes reloading outdoors impractical if not impossible unless you have the proper loading-aid tools that ARE NOT included with purchase.
7. The internet websites did not even show how-to-load diagrams. Success at actual loading was deductive guesswork and pot-luck.
8. Standard sized .177 BBs from my Crosman air pistol could NOT be loaded into the Daisy 15XT.
The purchase price was good at a discounted $49.99, and I received a 15% AAA discount making the total cost just $45.04 with sales tax. But I am returning this 15XT to the retail store for a full refund because I will not tolerate the ridiculous inconvenient loading.
