I recently bought two of these, one for my wife and one for myself, to mess play after the kids were in bed. For this, they are quite fun. The grip is easy to hold, and they are very comfortable to shoot with. The slide is smooth and easy and doesn't take much force to pull back. The cylinder rotates well, and it is easy to reload by swinging it out to the side with the press of a button. They also shoot pretty accurately. But one of them seems to be having problems after only a little bit of use. We took it to use in a carnival type game for kids, and it ended up getting shot about three hundred times by different kids. Since then, it hasn't been shooting right. When you pull the trigger, the mechanism fires, but the dart either gets stuck in the chamber or pops out and drops two feet in front of the gun. I'm not sure if the cylinder got misaligned and the dart is getting caught on the end of the barrel or what is causing it, but it should not have given out this quickly.
