    Not crossbow related but I was at my FFL picking up something else and this caught my eye in the used rack. I've been wanting one since they came out so I jumped on it. It's slightly used but is in great shape. He even threw in the Ruger bag which fits it perfectly.

    If it had camo grips it would match my rifle perfectly.

    I wish I had found it sooner, my deer season ends on Monday.

    I hope to get out to the range as soon as we come out of this ice age.

    She's a blast to shoot, and more accurate than you can believe. I'm at 70 grains of 777 loose powder, T/C XTP 240 grain Sabots, and I topped mine with a Bushnell Handgun Scope. You're gonna love that gun! Bottom was sighting in the new scope at 50 yards. Bottom target was where I left it. Have fun Bud!:cool:

    I'm not a fan of red dots for anything outside of target shooting but I will probably leave it on for now until get used to the gun.

    Nice shooting, that gives me more hope than I had for it.

    I love the single shot pistols. I've got a TC Contender with several barrels and I just love that thing. I looked for a ML barrel for it but it is the older design and I could not find one that would fit it.

    I'm looking forward to getting this one out on the range and having some fun.

    I bought a handgun rest to help with the control & confidence building using it. Trust me, the gun is accurate! After the Holidays give me a call, I have had mine for a few years, and got off to a bad start with her. It was all me.

    I'll take you up on that. Been hunting with the ML rifle for several years but this will be the first time with the pistol. Anything that will help me avoid pitfalls is appreciated.

    You can get that palm saver for the end of your ram rod at CVA website, it makes it a whole lot easier to push them home.
