I guess that's better than nothing! I tried out a 101 airborne today - 60lbs 29" even with 400gr arrows that sucker was zinging them down range! I had my bud shoot a few while I watched and listened and was very pleased with how quit it is. I'm still going to drive some more then pick my two favs and have a shoot out. Ss

AHAHA you better wait to get that bonus until AFTER its in the account.

Average tax on a bonus is between 30 - 45%. On average I lose about 38% of every bonus check to taxes.

It's all good! Still more than I had a week ago. Even with taxes and 401k it'll still buy a bow set up.
