Good Points
I bought my gun from my local hunting shop for 60 pounds-it did include trap, targets, gun and 250 pellets. This was my first air pistol although i have had a lot of rifle experience in the past. The gun is very accurate, i was hitinhg the black area of the targets 100% of the time, this is a tribute to the people who made it. The price is also very good, not only for people just starting out who may not have much money, but also for people who do the shooting for fun. I use the trap in a black and decker clamp in my garage, it makes the perfect range.

Bad Points
None really , the only two things i can think of, is that it gives off a semi-loud "crack" when it goes off and also the lack of hop up parts i can find. A top mounted scope would be nice.

General Comments
This is a marvelous gun, whether you are a novice or a more experienced shooter. It is excellent on the range. However i wouldn't recommend it for children, as the box also does not and also it is highly dangerous-in adult supervision, this could be the perfect way into target shooting as a sport.

Bertie's Response to straightshooter's Review

straightshooter...........the term 'hop-up' is one applied to softair guns i.e. the ones that fire plastic BBs and yours is designed to fire lead (or its derivatives) pellets.

<br/>The P800 is relatively low-powered and ideal for target work. Any attempt to increase that power will inevitably effect accuracy. A very affordable pistol that&#039;s close to the 6 foot/pound legal limit is the Crossman 1377, but you have to pump that up. It&#039;s a very good gun if you want a built-in Bullworker!
