    Nah, I think he's only about 18 years old, so it'll be another 40 years before he can use one... :wave1:

    How does the Mission work cocking it without a foot stirrup in the field? Is it just as easy as with a foot stirrup or is there a potential to damage to bow?

    There are two bumpers on the front of it, foot stirrips are inside the limbs... :wave1:

    I'll buy you a dozen arrows and watch you can make 6 robin hoods in 12 shots at 20 yards.:popcorn::stir:

    Who said anyting about robin hoods???? I don't shoot the same spot, per round of fire.

    At twenty yards, arrows were hitting same hole from previous rd of fire, but that doesn't mean a robin hood. IT IS MORE ACCURATE than my compound bow though... Is that what you are trying to get at? But, my compound bow is also capable of hitting a baseball size spot out to 40 pretty much regular like.... And, that's good enough to kill a deer, or at least the ones I hunt. It's sort of like the xbow is my Cooper Rifle and can shoot a one hole group at a hundy.... And, the compound is a Kimber that shoots a 2" group at a hundy. Both will be lethal on deer, and since I only shoot archery for the purposes of killing deer.... That's all that matters. :wave1: But heck ya, it is more accurate off a rest than a compound. :tup: that's why I spent the money on it, I am an accuracy freak. :D

    There is also a foot stirrup available as an option if a person wanted one but it's not needed. The sub is very easy to cock.

    That 80% letoff sure helps, and makes the trigger pull very smooth. Incredibly smooth if you ask me. Probably a big part of why it's so accurate.

    without any recoil, if you ever flinch on a shot - you know it, its obvious, and it is all your own doing, then I cuss myself.

    It's kind of a weird feel, you can actually watch the bolt travel to the target through the scope, unlike what normally happens when shooting a high powered deer rifle with a scope.

    Can you uncock it without shooting it and let us know how that thing shoots out to 80 yards +.

    Yes, you can. There is a button you flip near the safety. Attach the draw cord, push the button pull back about an inch, and it'll decock it safely.

    I will some day shoot it at 80 at the range, but have no intention to shoot deer at that range. A yote, well maybe a yote. :D

    I shot a doe at 50 yards 2 years ago. When I shot I could see (through the scope) the bright green fletching over her back, and thought I misjudged and shot over, but it was just the arch, it dropped right in behind her shoulder.

    yup.... :wave1: First decent weather since I bought the thing.

    Looking forward to shooting it more when it gets nicer. Just wanted to get it dialed in at 20.

    I'll give him 10 3 shot volleys and win money he doesn't robinghood...and lets remember the arrows are supposed to be in the center mark to be robinhoods, but I'll honor any ghetto robinhoods cj might luck into at 20 yards

    Robinhoods are a fluke.... Hitting the 10 ring is a guarantee :D
