For the life of me I do not understand why the customer has to break in a pellet rifle. None the less you will be highly disappointed if you expect this thing to shoot on target right out of the box. You first have to mount the scope then at the range you'll probably think the scope is defective. It isn't, you need to loosen the ring and twist the eyepiece until you get a clear picture and it will clear unless you have major sight problems. The instructions says there is a break in period. They are not kidding. Buy some Daisy brand pellets and fire away. After about 80 shots you can begin sighting in the scope and again, draw a big circle of about four inches at thirty yards away then hold as close to center as possible to achieve a grouping to see where the scope needs to set at. A marker is handy to mark the holes so they won't be counted the next adjustment to the scope settings. Once you get going, you'll find out this gun is not suited for a small child. It takes a bit of muscle to break the barrel for loading and forget speed. Putting a tiny pellet nose first is going to be challenging enough and if you aren't careful, you'll spill pellets everywhere. I've shot two inch groups all day long at thirty yards. The scope is the same design snipers use, so on a windy day you can actually use the Kentucky windage and achieve kill shots every shot just by holding a dot on target instead of the crosshair. So if I sound like I am complaining, maybe I am. But as a long time shooter I feel comfortable passing along information I feel might help an adult when making a decision to buy their child or themselves a pellet rifle. This is an awesome rifle and you'll get your moneys worth, trust me. I'd like to leave you with a final few words. At the end of the day, leave only footprints behind. Keep our wilderness wild and beautiful for the next generation to enjoy. And when you become a grandparent, you can hand your grandchild this Crossman Fury and teach them how to safely handle and enjoy the sport of shooting. With a little care, there is no doubt this rifle will last and preform many, many years. Happy & safe shooting!
