    If he payed $1700 for that bow he got raped, but it sounds like a good price for the bow with the case and looks like it has the sights and everything on it. Check into it but it looks like a good deal to me.

    Good deal man. Do yourself a favor and take that thing by your local shop and make sure everything is good on it.


    Hey Will, go ahead and get the bow already! I'm still loving my Lights out btw.

    do like jolay said and have a local shop give it a once over, then go for it fireman! Sounds like a pretty good deal. It's alot for a first bow, but if you can wing the cash, go for it.

    in that case,
    1) pay off debt....
    2) do like Will said and buy a cheapy beginner at the pawn (or Wills:D) and pay cash....something to cut yer teeth on.........
    3) continue making original dept payment to yourself until cost of a new one is saved up.....
    4) Go buy a complete NEW bow set-up.........
    5) Keep first used bow and convert to a bowfishing rig.......


    just my two cents..........:D

    well see the only reason I want to get a new setup is because I dont really know anything about bow hunting, and alot of people set the bow up for ya if you buy it from them. Ive got a few places in mind Im gonna go check out this week(if time permits)


    Im still gonna do the save jar thing thou. Ive been doing that for quite a while..One of those fancy Foldgers plastic with a handle jugs..haha

    the only reason i went used for my first bow was because if something happened and the bow broke on me....i wasnt out alotta money. you can get a bow set up at a shop for round $30 or so.......not too bad, and learn to shoot and all on a used one, then get a new one and make it the primary bow. im gonna keep my pawnshop bow as a backup....just in case.

    well i already know how to shoot..been doin it since i was little.

    I just havent shot a bow in probably 10-15 years now. Still got my old bow on the wall, and its a sad sight seeing it covered in dust since i always liked shooting. Promised the ol lady if I get a new bow she can have the old one since she wants to get into shooting also.
