This is an excellent little gun and the loading one dart at a time doesn't cause any trouble during a nerf battle (In fact, it's easier and quicker than my Maverick). The only reason this gets 4 stars and not 5 is that the light is a bit pointless. The trigger is so sensitive that you can't use the light as a range finder then shoot, the dart fires and you get a quick flash against the target.
Bought this for my youngest as she struggles to cock the bigger guns.
She is deadly with it.
Easy to cock, good features and decent range and accuracy for such a small gun.
The laser sight is also very cool :)
The only downside is the dart storage capacity, but this can be easily overcome.
Great as a reserve side-arm or as a younger team members main gun.
The gun can shoot 35 feet which is the longest range of any nerf gun on market. Fits nicely into your hand and and has a red dot sight built in. Great back up pistol.
three shots is no where near enough though. So an ammo pack is recommended.
For those who like to mod their guns this will shoot 70 feet easily. Just remove the air restictor, double up the spring and place in a coupler.
