Thanks to the holidays and obligatory gifts for everybody else, i gotta wait till mid-late January to get my hands on one of these bad boys... I doubt i will run through more than 3 sets of batteries on this toy, but i gotta have it. Nerf and a couple other toy companies have been a godsend to me as i grab toy guns to stock up on prop weapons for little movies me and my friends make. They're cheaper than Airsoft, look just as cool and well, look at it. it just screams Rock n' Roll! Did you or anyone else get one of these yet? you like it? ain't a Red Ryder, but day-um, it is kewl.
