Someone gave me a 5 gallon bucket of 22 shells. It took my son a long time to finally go thru all of them, but he did. As everyone knows 22 shells are almost impossible to find. I spent about $120 on the gun, and went ahead and put a scope on it. It's mostly zerod in. I'd like to shoot it one afternoon when the wind isn't blowing to really finish sighting it. It's a lot of fun, and cheap to shoot. It's supposed to shoot 1200 fps. I don't think its that fast, but it's fast enough.
