First time out to 25 yards, the gun was very accurate. Shooting dime and nickle sized groups of five shots easily. I went with the JSB Exact Jumbo Diabolo 15.89 grain pellets as many of the reviews said this was one of the best pellets for the rifle and they were right. Hand pumping is tough when the tank is new. It takes a while to get to 3000psi and the last 500 were tough. But after the first time, you'll learn to recharge around 2000psi and it'll take about 10 - 15 minutes. Always stop and let the pump cool after 5 minutes as many on the reviews says heat is what kills a hand pump.
As for the sound level the Talon SS makes, it's not super quiet. So if you're planning on using this in your backyard and you live in the city where the distance between you and the next house isn't that far, your neighbors will definitely hear it activity. But there are aftermarket shrouds for the Talon SS and with the additional shroud, it's very quiet and backyard friendly now. I've had it for a few weeks now and put over 300 rounds through it and it's great.
The only issue I had was the product DVD wouldn't play. I called Airforce's support line and gave them my serial number and they shipped a new DVD out the next day. So my limited service experience was good too. Overall, I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for a light, accurate, air rifle.
