Jimbo, welcome to the forums. Although not totally necessary this was a nice intro by you. If you regularly check in here you'll notice that there are some guys without a life (LOL) that just live on here; me included. Feel welcome to join any discussion and ask questions as you see fit. We are not Martin employees here. A few staff shooters, but basically just Martin or archery enthusiasts. Our primary focus here is to help others, learn from each other, and just have fun.
I suggest you read the Sticky at the top of the forum about the rules and guidelines. Although not hardnosed we like to stay on topic in threads, but some hijacking does go on. I tolerate it up to a point as sometimes it is just fun to converse with each other. Anything not archery related can be handled in the Off Topic Forum. Anything bowhunting related goes in that section.
So again, welcome and may you have fun here and learn.
