Garmin Crossbow Scope
« on: June 24, 2021, 07:39:31 PM »
My son works for Garmin, so when I see items related to that company I generally pay attention.  Just learned that Garmin has now released a Crossbow scope, a successor to their bow sight/rangefinder.   He can get me a discount of over 40%, but even with that, I don't expect to have one of these on my X-bow anytime soon!

I bet since you son works for Garmin - he got a pretty good discount for the old man....LOL....to expensive for my blood...ouch!!

But I can see the advantage in all the technology built in and there is a lot that goes into it...a lot of R&D that goes into it....but wonder how many of them that they will sell at MSRP prices....ouch! I bet not a whole lot of them will be sold, but there is always one that got to have it...the latest things in crossbow scopes......

bo- i bet you'd be surprised how many they sell. there are a lot of folks that need the newest and greatest. i look at my archery shop. every year a whole bunch of folks buy a new +$1200 bow. the fact they barely used the last one doesn't matter. it's a status symbol for them. goofy IMO

i'm afraid to know how old my Matthews is. it still shoots better than i can. i see no reason for a new one. plus the new one's are so small, they don't feel right in my hand

for that price, I expect it to retrieve and clean your game for you.

Yari - Folks who buy that $1200 box also attach another $800+  in accessories.  Ouch

Bo - yes, my son can get a 40+% discount on the Garmin stuff, and they encourage their employees to use it, doesn't have to be for themselves or even for family.  I think he's allowed something like 20 purchases a year under his badge number, we've had a lot of family and friends buying watches, bike computers, fish finders, etc.   Yari and Deerhead - and those guys/gals who spend $2K on the latest and greatest thing are often convinced it gives them some sort of superhero capabilities only to find out that they gutshoot a "giant" forkhorn at 20 yards and can't find it until after the yotes got to it.
