Re: have to switch hands

Dry fire? Wrong terminology with a crossbow, but know what your saying. I shoot either hand. Most have a dominant eye, that should determine which hand to shoot from. I do not have a dominant eye. For me, it seems to come natural to shoot from either side. For you, I would say two things, practice a...

Re: OT / Va. Gobbler - Shotgun

Nice bird. Glad you got one. I had to work Saturday, and didn't get to go. Hopefully I'll be out next Saturday.

Re: My review of the Dr Stirrup Kit

Another "not a high Jack" but a good place to add my .02. I was interested in the DR. Stirrup set-up. Ordered the Bumpers and limb silencers, then checked the trading post, I found all of it, except the cocking rope, at a very good price, so I bought it as well. The silences from DS arrived first, s...

What length arrows for turkey head w/Dr. Stirrup

Tried to squeeze most of my question in the subject spot. What lenght arrow would I need if using a Dr. Stirrup on a M380 and using turkey broadheads. I have a Dr Stirrup coming and trying to figure out my arrows before hand.

Thank you, RR

Re: trigger upgrade

Have you tried to squeeze the trigger with the safety on, to take the creep out, then off with the safety and shoot? I know that if I do this with both of my bows, the trigger is much better. Was thinking about trying a trigger tech on my M380, but after playing with an the trigger like I suggest, I...

Re: Anyone with M380, TAC Zone, and chrony?

Out shooting yesterday. 20yrds I was dead on, but 40 seemed to be off a little. Wife checked the mail and I had a new string from 8ptbuk. I was wanting a back up string. A few years ago, 8ptbuk sent me a new string for my Phoenix, free, so I figured the least I could do was buy one for my M380 from ...

Re: Uncocking micro 335

Bet you were nervous the first time you shot it, but you did anyway. The harder you pull up on the T handle, the less noise when you squeeze the trigger.

Re: Meat grinders

I bought mine from Gander Mtn. Caught it on sale less than $100. Have had it several years, probably 6+. Never have had problem.

Re: Anyone with M380, TAC Zone, and chrony?

Out shooting today, decided to try 60yrds. The center of my bag target is pretty well shot up, but still stops arrows, and I can tell from the sound if I have hit close to center. 3 shots and close to a 2" group, but the last arrow, I could tell from the sound, was off. Low by about 3-4". Hmm, was p...

Re: diablos got stuck

Buy a field point only crossbow target bag and you can just pull them out with your fingers. I have one that is quite old, don't really remember how long I've had it. Shot out the cover, bought a new cover and slipped the old inside. Still works great and stops the 380 at 20yrds. 2 fingers and can ...

Re: Anyone with M380, TAC Zone, and chrony?

Thanks Big John for the PM.
MTBighorn, I did have the bow just setting on a rest, and don't think I was really holding it, so recoil may have been a factor. Went back out, and with some tips from Big John, and holding the bow, I almost have it. Will head back out tomorrow for a check.
