Who the hell got the idea that thses things are SOFT? Oh wait, I know...they're just soft enough NOT to break skin. violent11 These little things hurt like hell. The pistol is spring, moves at 200 fps with a 20gr round, the big rifle moves at 325, all are full auto optional. Guess which one is Dad's? My son shot my arm with the pistol. Fuk me, that stangs. The batteries are charging, the hoppers are full, the turkey is in the oven and the boys are getting anxious. I don't think they know the full potential of these things. One hour to full charge.
