We really like that the magazine holds 50 clay pigeons and it does a really good job of making sure the pigeons are fed directly into the drop hole. It is also really easy to see how many pigeons are left in the magazine from the end of the release pedal and also from most of the shooting stations we shot from. Another downside of the design is that it will only throw single clay pigeons. It cannot throw doubles, nested doubles, or any clay pigeons that aren't the standard size.
Another nice safety feature (that is hard to get pictures of) are the 4 ground stakes that come in the box to hold the legs down. The stakes are good quality and not the flimsy ones that sometimes come with some outdoor equipment.
