Re: Fun with the 'hot' BD400 yesterday. ...until my screws loosened up

So, I call no roasting allowed on father’s day. A couple months ago, I got so sick of those little screws getting loose that actually glued the scope rail to the trigger assembly. I wanted to use epoxy but I had this glue called GoTo Glue by locktite. Its thick and looks like an epoxy when set up bu...

Re: What REDS for the G340?

Wow Ferguson! You got a G340? That looks like a great bow! Congrats. I think that or the BD330 would be perfect bows. I’m new to the crossbow game but I love the matrix line. I’m glad I have a matrix. Frankly, I don’t think i’d Like to cock a micro as often as I shoot.

Re: Limbs

Just speaking for myself, I am looking forward to purchasing something from Danny Miller again just for the chance to talk to him again. He is very knowlegeable and a hoot to talk to. When I dryfired my bow 2 weeks after getting it, Dawn at Excalibur was very helpful to send me new limbs. I bought s...

Re: dead zone scope on griz2

I’d say test it out. The dials go lower than the 300 setting. My sons’ grizzlies have dead zones on them and the speed dial is set at about 300 shooting 412 grains. The crosshairs are set for 30 yard zero which you would think would require a slower speed setting. Hitting dead on at 30, 40, 50, 60, ...

Re: Multigenerational twist

Boo, Montana Mark, Y’all are both WRONG! Marry a flight attendant. Before the “pond” was filled in, she would have to leave on a trip. Problem solved! Amateurs! My wife takes trips all the time. My wife and I both do our own thing and rarely together. We’re both fine with it. I once went on a men’s...

Re: Multigenerational twist

Boy now I’m really getting off topic. The pond story is actually very funny. At our house, we don’t talk about “the pond”. I actually refer to it as “my midlife crisis”. I have a handyman named Ali (I consider him a friend/almost brother) who helps me and my dad with projects. While fixing up my ho...

Re: Multigenerational twist

Besides. I love my little place in the country. It reminds me of the pictures I’ve seen of the old family farm in Sweden. My house is small and simple with board batten sides. I have a little barn and numerous sheds with a flag pole in the middle. I’ve even painted it up to look like the old Swedish...

Re: Multigenerational twist

I graduated medical school 20 years ago with $200k debt. I still owe $100k. The main reason I’d like to help is because I know that is a real burden. However, I respect that he wants to be his own man. I felt (still feel) the same way. My dad helped me through college and he offered to help with med...

Multigenerational twist

Off topic (not crossbow related). So today, I went up to my folks to tell them I didn’t want to buy their house (1M$ house for a song—they want to downsize) and made up some excuses but the real reason was that I want to be my own man even if it is a struggle. It was a difficult decision and I came ...
