Awesome. I got one and it is a blast. Mine, however, has a wrist wrap, for securing it to the arm and being able to aim better. That one looks like it used to have one. Hit your buddy up for the rest of it (if he still has it) and put it on. You will be surprised at what it adds to the thing.

Mine has the same as hubbs, it has a part that goes on your arm so that its secure. But they are fun when you cant use a cannon or anything. I just like things going fast and doing damage, thats just me!! :)

Have fun with that!

As far as ammo goes, marbles work great. Something else that works (sold by Crossman) is ball bearings. They come in two different sizes (I forgot what they are). They have a flat spot on two sides, I guess so they can be gripped easily.

It is amazing what kind of accuracy these little things have, too.
