    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.
                           Hermit.

    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 .
