riflejunkie's review of Gamo Shadow 1000

Good Points
Overall I am disapointed with the Shadow, but I do like the stock and the rifle is not expensive. Cosmetics in general are good, and it is not very heavy. The sights are easy to use and are adjustable for windage and elevation.

Bad Points
This is a terrible trigger and anyone who doesn't complain about it must have no shooting experience. I spent $32 on the GRTlll replacement trigger and and the difference is night and day!

General Comments
This is a difficult rifle to shoot well and is very hold sensitive. My estimation of any gun is based on whether or not it can keep shots in the 10 ring. Under ideal circumstances with the right shooter and close distance you might be able to do it with this gun, but it's a gamble. If you want to shoot tin cans this rifle can do that. If you want to consistently hit something really small like the 10 ring on a paper target or a woodchucks head I think you will be discouraged.
