    Thanks to everyone who suggested going used. I'd love to, but no one has any left handed used bows. They barely have anything new, they said they have to order it for me. I want to support a local shop, but at this rate I am ready to buy a package deal from online.

    This is a little frustrating to be honest.

    Autumn Sky and Deer Creek in Har. Co., and Macrotech down towards the Glen. Of the three i liked the first two most. They are really close to my house, the third, well there is the distance and the guy can be a little standoffish shall we say...

    Check with Chip at Jefferson. Great people to work with. If you can't find a lefty locally try either Hunters Friend or E Bay online. I've seen plenty of left handed bows on there. Sometimes MarylandWhitetail.Com has some listed in the classifieds.

    I have been to Jefferson's site while researching what I wanted.

    I'm learning how to make a self bow lol...much cheaper :) just no gadgets and thingamajigs
    I have seen those videos on how to make your own, they seem pretty cool.

    "You know him..."

    Yes, Len is well respected in the archery world.
    He's different, but he knows his stuff.

    We are lucky over here on the eastern shore, we have Whitetail Outpost
    to fill all our archery needs.

    I have a Mission Craze and the shop down here, Fred's Sports had them for around 400 ready to hunt.

    I am as actually interested in that bow, and the Riot. I want to shoot it but no one has one setup, but they are more than willing to order one for me. I also like the Stinger and Brute X from PSE, I was looking at the Drive but after looking at the specs I think it might not be a good fit for me.

    There's a used left handed bow in the southern maryland classifieds. A lot of stuff included.
    No affilliation with the seller.

    I am a left hander as well and won a new to me lefty compound bow for a great price.
    Yeah, I saw that one. Congrasts on winning a bow!

    Yeah, I heard that he was pretty knowledgeable but you should know exactly what you want before you walk in the door.

    You can think you know what you want but until shooting the bow you don't know.

    100% correct. I thought I wanted a certain Diamond product until I shot it and decided on a Mission bow.
