OK so I haven't gotten up to VT yet so my nephew has not gotten it yet.......and now he wont. I found a fun use for the 74. It makes a great bug buster. I can take carpenter bees out of the air with it by instinct shooting it and walking the bb's to the bee as it hovers. Works great as the 74 loses very little power when you shoot it fast. Karen likes to play with it too so I bought her one as well. Went from frustration to buying a shooting pair. Quite a surprise to me. Interestingly, the second one came today and it has no serial #. It also shoots way more accurate, out of the box. No tape mod needed. I have not had it apart yet but it looks like the end of the shot tube or the front sight insert is different than the original one I got a couple months ago. I'll pull it apart this weekend and see if it has been improved. Now the two of us can sit in our lawn chairs and splatter carpenter bees together. Tongue
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Picked up one of these at an auction this week. It looked to be in nearly new condition. When I got it home it still had a charged CO2 cartridge in it. Shoots great. No powerhouse but ran about 60 rounds through it and still has CO2! This is going to be a lot of fun.

Thanks for everyone here who 'promoted' it. I doubt I ever would have tried one without the recommendations.
