    We ordered one of these and received it last week. Feels like it's made to last, called and ordered a factory second, was under $70 with shipping.

    I will admit I have had to add an extension to my hand launcher. Better distance less recoil.

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    No one should have a problem with recoil, John! Careful with the orange ones!!!

    That's definitely a thought- a 209 instead.

    I would love to find another NEF .22 if anyone knows of one for sale. I loved that little starter pistol. I'll bet the thieves were a little less than impressed when they *really* looked at their new gun. LOL
