    Local Cabelas (probably all stores, but not online) has the Centerpoint Sniper on sale starting tomorrow for $229. I also have about 60 points I "should" use.;) Yesterday, I was 95+% I was going over to get one tomorrow. Now, after playing with my current bows and the Excal build preview, I'm close to 75% passing on it.:confused:

    I seen that in a flyer they sent ,looks like a good deal if your in the market for one. don,t see how you could beat that bow for the money from what I read about them. It,s hard to get away from them home built parts bows as they are second to none in my book.

    I have lately purchased some things I had to have. When I see sales, I look, but then I reach down into my inner self and ask, do I really need this? That's when the child in me says heck yeah!:eek::p No, really. It's only a sale if you really need it!:cool: Try to exercise some self control Brother.:rolleyes::p:D

    Saw that just today and thought somebody's going to get a good deal just not me this time. I'll stick with Frank an keep my nasty ole frankin bows.
    I saw a Savage Axis rifle sale last weekend, $289 with a $100 rebate, $189 out the door. No scope but dang, I've paid more that that for used firearm's.

    Thats sounds just like me! First I saw a recurve on sale! Then just the other day saw a broad head target on sale.Got them both!:D:D

    I really like my recurve.With that said It makes me really appreciate my CP Sniper.A great bow and the great price just makes it that much sweeter! I didn't need either 1 though:eek::D:D.

    I say go for it Jeff! You only live once and you wont be sorry you got it!After shooting mine for a year I know I'm not ! :D 0917170923a.jpg 20171105_112306.jpg

    The conflicting advise is awesome! :D You guys are great! :DPretty much what I expected, and that's fine. I still don't know what I'm gonna do.;) I'd like to find out what a compound crossbow is like, and I'm not going to get one cheaper. I was reading something about downsizing this morning, and that will happen eventually, I suppose. I'm surely crazy to already have 3 crossbows, and will still have 3 when I give the one away, and now 4 if I go up there tomorrow.:rolleyes: I used to be this way about rifles before I realized how good my main '06 really was. Can only hunt with rifles for 2 weeks in PA, and I can shoot a crossbow in the basement every day without pissing the wife off. Can't do that with a deer rifle!;) I guess I'll figure it out in the next 12 hrs. or so. Hey, maybe I could turn the Sniper into a cool compound franken-crossbow.;)

    Must be an older pic, Paul. I don't see a 350 LE there.;)

    It is a pic from last summer. I took this the other night.She fits right in my holder like all the others.

    She is a SE and not a LE. I think that means just a different scope? Anybody know? I guess the SE stands for Special Edition and LE is Limited Edition? 20171211_012205.jpg
