    comparison of red dot laser sight and conventional telescopic sight

    Post by Hermit on Thu Apr 24, 2014 8:30 am

    First topic message reminder :

    I have been hearing(and seeing) a great many crossbows fitted with so-called laser sights.I have hunted for many years(with a firearm)and am comfortable and familiar with telescopic sights.I have never used,or owned a laser dot sight.
                                             The one obvious advantage of such a sight is size.Although I have'nt owned such a sight,I can envisage several disadvantages.With the disadvantages in mind,and my complete lack of experience with this sight I would appreciate any input from members who own a laser sight,and have used if to hunt.
    As any experienced hunter knows,hunting is hard on equipment,and the KISS principle is usually best.I look forward to your comments on your experiences.

    I have looked through those scopes on the Excalibur bows in the store, I agree I don't care much for it. I like the mil dot reticles much better, maybe I would change my tune if I actually shot an Excalibur bow.

    Twedzel; A friend of mine has one  and I ;ve shot it a  quite bit. I like the recurve part of it. Less to go wrong . Fair speed . Medium on the noise and shock.Easy to cock. Pretty pricey though. For that matter ,all the commercial  rigs are up there in price . I like making my own stuff even though I could by one. It's just a pride thing ,you know what I mean . I really think that that could define almost everyone on this forum. There is an exceptional bunch on this forum .
