If your not going to hunt with it ? I would buy neither mdel as they both the Micro 355 and Suppressor have a draw weight of 280#
and are pretty much designed as specifically "Hunting Models".
IMO, that's way more than I would ever suggest for informal target pratice...
Personally, I would hate the thought of having to continusly ( sp?) have to resort to a cranking device that would have to be attached to back of the bow before each shot,
just so I could continue to shoot after at best, (in my case ) just few shots using a rope cocking device.
For a purely "pleasureable" and accurate Excal. to shoot, I would suggest you look at the Matrix line from the 330 down thru the Saffire models.. Way have a way better draw weight to performance ratio and any model above 305 fps will certainly serve you in the hunting field. Besides the cost factor..
As to your concern of model having no ADF,
it is available thru the internet or just about any dealer who sells Excaliburs and is easily installed while not "Breaking the Bank. Excalibur actually leaves it off their lower draw weight Matrix line bows up thru and including the Matrix 355 with it's 240# draw weight. Obviously they feel these models handle the stress applied shoud a dry fire occure at some point.
I think perhaps you live in Oregon with there no crossbow hunting policy, am I right? If that's the case I live in WA state just 16 miles north of Portland Ore and your welcome to come shoot and experience the 3 models I have in the collection.
