Well we were out at Gander Mountain tonight just killing time after eating. I was looking at those ugly black rifles that everyone here likes and I try to avoid, and some youth model .22's for the little one. Found a Savage with a thumb through stock that fit him pretty good, and was a nice looking bolt action. Wife was over looking at clothing and shoes, you know women. I tried to get her to look at a S&W 642, but she really wasn't interested. Of course the ones they had had locks on them, don't know if that matters or not.
Well we made it back to the archery section, and were milling around when she popped up and said, I want a bow. She had shot her niece's over the labor day weekend and kinda liked the fact that she could pull it back, and she even hit the target. Before that she had only tried with one of my old ones and well even backed way off, she could not draw the thing.
So after some looking I came across a Parker Wildfire XP and a Sidekick XP. I am not sure she will be able to draw the Wildfire, but the Sidekick come in a 40-50 lb draw weight. I have been wanting a new bow, and this appears to be the right time to work my new purchase in.
Have any of you all shot or does anyone have a Parker product? I have searched around a bit, and they appear to get pretty good reviews for the money, especially on their combo's which is what we were looking at. Texas requires a 40lb draw weight in order to hunt so whatever she ends up with will have to have a 40-50 lb range.
Thanks for any input you might have.
