I got this gun for free; and I was still disappointed with it. The effective range for this gun is literally 20', after that you'd be lucky to hit the side of a truck, if your ball actually made it out of the barrel. My most valued asset while playing with this gun was this: my squeegee. I broke every 5th ball or so; if you're looking for a paintball shotgun, this is the marker for you. Please, don't waste your money on this marker, get something else, a Victor, a Rebel, anything, heck, get a slingshot. The most fun I had with this gun was trashing it; plastic, or "composite" is easily broken when thrown against a wall. If you're going to keep this marker anywhere, please, keep it in the garbage where it belongs. Heck, leave it on the store shelf, its better off there than anywhere else, let some other noob buy it.
Don't buy this marker. Spend you're money on something else, or use the money you would have spent on this marker to light fires. I would have given this marker a zero, but unfortunately the lowest grade is a one, so i will give it that
