    OK, so this seems like it’s off archery topic, sort of.   Just introducing my self.

    I’m about to become the proud owner of a Mathews bow.  I’m coming back after a long layoff from the hobby. I’ve shot Martin and PSE all my life, but had a chance to shoot a Chill R this weekend.  Soon as the Chill X shows up at the dealer here in town I’m going to get to shoot it.  If the extra ATA and BH produce what I think it will, I’ll be plunking down the cash.

    Anyway, name is Steve.  Been an off and on shooter for years.  ON when ranges were close, OFF when I’ve lived a long way from one.  i started shooting in Delaware when I lived 1/2 mile from a range, and now, in So Cal, I have my own 5 acre place now, so while it’s not a range, I can practice at home.

    My current bow is about 12 years old, so I’m really looking forward to shooting something new.

    See ya around the range (er forums)…

    Thanks
    Steve

    Thanks, Steve

    Monster, so does mine.

    Vash, know the Bay Area some, grew up between San Fran and Sac. Wish I had 5 up there instead of here.

    Really wish I had 5 in Alaska but that’s another story!!!!

    Hi Bow,

    Thanks for the welcome.  I read some threads on why it got quiet.  I owned a forum in another hobby that was one of the busiest out there.  Did a format change (big change), killed my forum and never did recover.

    One of the reasons I joined.  I’ll have questions once my Chill X gets here.

    Thanks, Steve

    Welcome, Steve!

    I think you’ll love your new Mathews. I bought my 1st Mathews (Switchback XT) a few years ago and won’t own anything else.

    Is there any deer or anything you can hunt close by?

    My son lives in Oceanside. Not too far from you.

    Hi Wrack,

    I’m in Oceanside a couple of times a week.   Belong to a Model Train Club in Vista (right next to Oceanside).

    There is some hunting in the area.  I haven’t hooked into any yet.  There’s turkey and boar down south in San Diego County.  Some deer hunting.   A couple of hunt clubs around as well.  Bighorn Canyon Ranch is just north of us.  http://bighorncanyonranch.com/newsite/wordpress/?page_id=15

    Thanks for the welcome,

    Thanks, Steve
