I am sure you read my post, the one i bouhgt at wally mart was vangaurd delux sporter for 468. (give or take couple bucks) has wood stock and shoots real fine for me. any way gave it to my 16yr old son with 3x9 luppy hard to beat it for the $ i think.
Walmart just sells for less, like madmax just alluded to. Walmart is plenty legitimate. I'm not thrilled that there is a walmart every 2 square miles apart, but I like walmart and shop there often. Hard to justify paying full price when you can get the exact same product from walmart for less money. Many specialty shops no longer offer the same level of customer service that they once did anyway.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
