    Congrats, that's a beautiful buck. And yes 50 yards is pretty much adrenaline. Short of a spine shot that's to be expected. Thanks for sharing.

    Advice on new scope purchase

    VX5HD and don't look back. I was thoroughly impressed with mine after being a VX3 guy. Night & day difference.

    I agree. I just placed my first order with them and will definitely support them in the future. Thank you PV. We're all struggling just to be able to enjoy our shooting sports.

    Trigger Tech vs Timney Trigger

    Non scientifically I would agree. I think my Jewell to TT is what TT is to Timney. I love both those top 2 but I've had problems with Timney's.

    $1200 budget, what would you buy?

    Side Arm for Grizzly Country

    I'm not a Springfield fan by any means. I've owned 1, an old 1911. Sold it 40 years ago and never went back. But I have to say I absolutely love this XDM.
