Joined: 11/17/2006Funny you would ask. the shop was doing inventory and checking things off the computer. He asked if I wanted to know how much I spent there last year. I said sure lets hear it. 8,000 dollars. I laughed and said yeah right thats got to be over the years I have been there. he smiled and said yes one of them. now I got to pay him to not tell my wife.

Joined: 3/20/2005Who knows lol. All I will disclose is that I bought a Switchback in June or so and I just laid down money for a Drenalin at the end of November. Factor in all the goodies for each bow and you’ll see what I have a HUGE chunk invested right there.
And that’s where this ends lol
Joined: 8/6/2004I’m not really sure unless you are only counting equipment and supplies. If you add range time, tournament fees, lodging and mileage, then I’m around the $3000 mark.

It is for sure equipment only, or do you really want all of us to begin the new year with a bad conscience or even worse, with the resolution to spend less $$$ in our beloved sport in 2007
Joined: 7/12/2004Enough! But not nearly as much as Harley-Davidson got out of me!!For me it was unfortunately not much and not enough…
But, if I had more to spend, it would definitely be more though…
I’m hoping fortune comes my way this next year and I will be able to upgrade to the “Dren”
B.And I thought that I had spent a lot. Some of you guys make me look like I hardly spent anything. I better show my wife, I still need a few things.
Location: In the evening shadow of oona-pa'isMy wife occasionally checks up on me here. I’ve spend $35 for licences… honest!
