Those That Wait Upon the Arrival

Searching and Scrolling

Killer Instinct SWAT X1 Crossbow
Killer Instinct SWAT X1 Crossbow

After hours upon hours of scrolling and searching and searching and scrolling, you finally decide what you want, the Killer Instinct SWAT X1 Crossbow Elite Package. You rub your hands together as if you’re kindling the excitement from your fingers to your toes. Then your fingers work up the courage to click the red button, adding it to the cart. You’re not done yet, because there are accessories you’ll want to receive the same time your crossbow shows up. You encourage yourself to scroll some more. 

You keep pushing that buggy until you get everything you need to put to full use that Swat X1 Crossbow when it gets there. Like these few things;

Add to cart, add to cart, and add to cart! It’s time to check out, you scroll one more time to make sure you’ve got everything you need. You answer yourself with, “That’s all, you’re done!” Finally, you pull your wallet out and enter your information, a-a-a-and SUBMIT your order. Now what? You check your email to confirm the order went through and it did!

Waiting for Good Things

Now it’s time to wait. What do you do while you wait for your ever exciting archery equipment to arrive? Waiting for good things can be extremely difficult, so it’s important to find something or somethings to occupy your mind and your hands with. 

If you have an occupation, I am not telling you to quit your job until the Killer Instinct SWAT X1 Crossbow Elite Package arrives. Go to work, I’m pretty sure you’ll want more equipment in the future, and how are you going to fund your hobby if you don’t work? Hey that’s a great question, thanks for asking.

If you’re truly retired and don’t have an occupation obligation, there are still ways to occupy your mind and hands. Do you have an archery range set up? If the answer is no, there’s your answer. Get your measuring tape or Hawke Laser Range Finder out and go the distance. 

Range Set-Up Suggestions

Big Shot Ballistic 450 crossbow targets
Are you a one target shooter or a multiple target shooter?

Depending on your archery skill, I would start at twenty-five yards for a beginner and for a seasoned shooter’s hunting practice, I’d go with fifty to sixty yards tops. With a crossbow, the closer you are to the target, the more of a wrestling match you may have ahead of you to retrieve your bolts.

How would you set up your range? Do you like having one Big Shot Ballistic 450X Bag Target, which would require you to change distances, or do you like multiple Big Shot Ballistic 450X Bag Targets, which would require you to stand in one place and change your aim points? Whichever option you like, you’ve got some work to do. 

What About Storage?

When you finish setting up your range, the next thing you may want to prepare for is storage. Where do you plan to store your excitement; on a string? Your spouses’ side of the bed? You live with them, so it won’t affect me at all. If you plan to think of your significant other and want to store it somewhere other than their side of the bed, you may have more work to do. How about a bow case? Whatever you decide to do, I know the excitement is building, but you still have time left before its arrival. What now?

Research time! You don’t want your Killer Instinct Swat to show up and know nothing about it, right? Of course not! There are ways to get pre-educated so when it shows up, reading the manual is a breeze. One thing The Bow Bully knows is, the easier it is to learn something, the sooner you’ll get to enjoy it and that’s a fact! 

Waited Long Enough!

Did I just hear a knock at the door? There it is again! It’s here! It’s here! Oh you thought we were talking about you the whole time? No, I was talking about me, thanks for reading this blog, but I’m out! I’ve waited long enough to check this gear out and you’re not keeping me here any longer! I will be back with more on my new equipment, until I write again!
