Default Bought a Xbow this morning

Welp, never thought that I would ever own a Xbow but I bit the bullet this morning.
My son, who is 7 really wants to start bow hunting with me and that was all that I needed to decide to make that purchase.

I picked up a Mission Sub-1 Lite.
Shot is next to the Ravin R26. Night and day difference in the 2 and I went with what I thought shot, felt and sounded better.
By no means was the Ravin bad, but the Mission seemed better to me. It doesn't hurt that Im a Mathew's guy these days.

I got out in the backyard and shot it 30 and 40 yds. This thing is quiet, fast and accurate.

Hope fun hunts are ahead of my son!

I will likely have it in the truck with me when I head to KS too.
