Re: factory vs aftermrkt scope - how much better in low light

With so many variables, it's impossible to quantify. My VXIIIs and VXRs are an absolute improvement. For a comparison, if you can hunt until 1/2 hr after sunset with a factory scope, you'll have another 1/2 hr with a VXIII. The advice to go an look is a good one. Even better would be to go and check...

Thanks, definitely leaning heavy toward the 380. Think I found a shop nearby that you can try one.
Best to bring the wife in to check out what you want her to shoot as well.

Re: 380 or 400

The suppressor is not an easy bow to cock. I would be far more inclined to give my wife a 330. It's a far more enjoyable bow to shoot and could be a bow you wife can cock. I have one and I love shooting it. There's not a whole lot of difference between the 380 or 400 Bulldogs speed wise. But, I am s...

Re: knife sharpener

No problem with disagreeing. I'm just repeating what knife guys have told me. I'm no pro and I'm certainly not a purist knife sharpening guy.I do agree on the quality of steel and degrees of angle being the what determine edge retention. That being said, the information that I've been given, all th...

Re: O/T - does anyone here own a recent GMC Canyon?

Its done. Bought one. Thank you all for your input! Pics? X2! It has to be shipped so I might see it on Saturday. I'll post some pics when I have time but I barely have time to fart recently. First red vehicle I've owned! Had a bad dream last night that every gizmo started to act up intermittently!...

Re: Nocks keep falling out

Use a dab of hot melt glue or push the nock into the shaft through a plastic shipping bag.

Re: O/T - does anyone here own a recent GMC Canyon?

Most people, including younger techs, don't realize how much better things are for the car owner. When I started my apprenticeship in 1977, engines, transmissions and diffs had a difficult time getting past the 100,000 mile mark. Within a few years, I was rebuilding one of those 3 once a week. If it...

Re: O/T - does anyone here own a recent GMC Canyon?

I wouldn’t get a Canyon if it was me, they cost almost as much as the full size trucks. I have a 2016 Chevy 4 door z71 with the 5.3 engine and with the cruise control on 70 it gets 22-23 miles to a gallon all the time and about 18 in town. I can pull something with mine, have a lot more room and th...
