    Well, as ya'll can see from the title, I got most of my bow equipment. :peace: However, I still have to wait for my sights to come in. :doh: I ended up going up to Silver City New Mexico at a place called Rough Country Gear to buy my bow. I ended up buying a Mathews Switchback XT 29" 70# Max draw, Trophy Taker rest, 7" Doinker, Cobra Sidewinder Plus Sight (5 pin) (still on order), a dozen PSE Radial Weave 300, Bow case, and all the other extras. The bad thing about the whole situation is that there is going to be a 3D shoot on this coming Sunday. Although it would be nice to be able to compete, I don't know enough about shooting a bow without sights. I know that I will be learning how to do this later, but I'm not that confident right now. I think that I will only shoot the 20 and maybe the 30 yard paper targets.

    Nice setup you got there. Don't count yourself out yet. You got good equipment. Now you just need to learn how to shoot it properly.
