.270 or .30-06 might be nice to have.

My wife works for Walmart so I get a discount. Might have to see if there any at one of our local Walmartís.

Thanks for the heads up!

I thought about one the Grizzlies but for the price and extras it not a whole lot more really.

I was looking at the bulldog 330. My daughter has the Jackal and a smaller one the Terrain xt. I have both a few times but since itís hers I donít shoot much because I will change something and it will effect the way she shoots them. The Jackal is a pretty nice crossbow. Especially for the price.
One thing I donít like about those two is if a string needs replaced which shouldnít be a big deal but I have to take it and have it worked on. I could pretty much take one of the Excaliburís down by myself.
This model comes with eveything but air brakes.

Last year I came close to getting one last year. I am close to getting one this year too. Wife needs more convincing. She says the one I want is expensive for something I will only hunt 4-5 days with. I told her you never know I might really like to hunt with it. She said she has no doubt that I will shoot it but just doubts the amount I will hunt with it because I like my other bows too much.
How all has experience with one?

He has an arrowhead

I have been wanting some range reports on the 140 grain SPís. I like the price of those. Just hard to find anyone that has them.

I have a DPMS Oracle. It does have a 1:9 twist. I have shot 40-62 grain bullets and they shoot about the same regardless. One of the cheapest but most accurate round I have found that my rifle loves is Geco .223 fmj ammo. I canít remember if its 55 or advertised as 56 grain. It is made in Germany but is own by someone in Switzerland. The most accurate fmj ammo I have ever shot.
 I also have a Bushmaster upper with a 16Ē barrel in .450 bushmaster. That thing is a deer killing machine and have been wanting to take it out on a hog hunt if ever I get to go on another one.
If you are not familiar with than round it shoots a .45 caliber that weighs 250 grains 2100 fps in my version 2200 fps in the 20Ē version. Its like a magnum loaded muzzleloader that you donít have to clean and reload manually every shot.
Those Oracles can be had very cheap. I know two people that has had bad luck with the S&W Sports. One guy I think it might be on him but the other guy had a miss alignment in the gas tube. Either one my shoots just as good if not better with some ammo.

I think it will be a owner/employee plus. I donít think it will effect the consumer much.

I would like for our school to reconstruct the entrance and exits of the school. Its not close to being secure. You go thru one door which sends them a tone and they donít even look who goes inside before unlocking the next door. Last week I went in when the mail delivery man opened the door for me and nobody buzzed me in.
I donít like it but I want a cop at the door, one watching monitors and one walking the hallways. These guys could be volunteers or reserverd deputies  that have had extensive background checks. Of course I would also want them trained. We already have one law officer there part of the day.
Social Media, convincing every other parent there kids have a disorder that requires mind altering drugs, drug companies misrepresenting the use and down playing long term side effects and politicians and political swing masters telling everyone that its ok to be mentally impaired that should require a mental institution to walk freely with us and not know about it. Sane people do not kill groups of people or masses. They want to blame the NRA but not say crap to one drug company. 40-50 years ago did we have as many people on these meds and were they as powerful? We know how these people are just look at the opioids and the ammount of damage they have introduced.

I can only imagine how I would be in his situation. I hope in time his pain eases.
