This little toy was a major disapointment to my child and myself, I grant you we should have looked it over a little better before purchasing it, but we didn't. This was a most definete impulse buy, driven by an eight year old and followed up by a forty-five year old with very little foresight into this toy. It is supposed to be a paintball gun of sorts but it doesn't work it is very poorly made. it turns out it's actually just some sort of cheap hand pump that is supposed to propel the ball with a blast of air. We had no real success with firing the "gun" if you can call it that. The " paint balls" just sort of rolled out the end of the barrel instead of being fired with any force at all. I also noticed that there was no place to get replacement ammo. Overall I think this is probably one of the worst toys we ever encountered as a father son team. Very cheaply made for such a price steer clear of the Sport Tech Splatblaster.
