Ironically he shot me on the butt by accident, it did sting, but that's all, he only pumped it 1 time, so it wasn't very hard. He let me shoot him back to make it even, LOL.
My mom was the same way. She figured I would shoot my sister's with it if we got in a fight. Finally my Great Uncle bought me one a lot like your's when I was 15. I wish I still had it. I got rid of it when I moved into my apartment though because the seals had ruptured and it didn't shoot anymore.
