Zoom-O Catch and Fire hands on test and modification notes

In this post I comment on Comfort, Noise, and Shooting. Then I talk about everything I’d like to change about this toy in Modification Notes.


It is so uncomfortable to hold and shoot. It has too much weight in the front which you end up supporting with you index finger.
