I bought the gun today and it's a sweet shooter. It seems to shoot very well. I don't know how the pattern is yet but I seem to hit the pop bottles pretty well from 25 yds away with every shot. I really like it..
From firing a shot to reloading & shooting again, I say it took me about 5 to 7 seconds. I have to say it is akward to open the barrel up because I'm use to having the button up by the hammer, But like I said, I think I can get use to in time..
Also, I'm actually not worried at all with the way the hammer is set up on this gun. I figured the transfer bar safety could mess up on my H&R anytime so, I should just enjoy my new toy & continue to pratice my safe gun handling techniques.. My dad thinks I got a pretty good deal..
Well, Just wanted to let you all know what I decided on.
