    I don't know man!! I really wouldn't buy my bow from Walmart!!! certain supplies...ya sure, but definitely not my actual weapon. If cost is your worry, Rick at Peter's Sports has a couple of used bows you should check out. He'll also be able to answer some questions you have.
    It falls down & goes blah

    I just phoned peter's sports and they don't have any used compound bows in.

    I can see your point about buying a bow from Walmart, but walmart is just a store that sells them. If Walmart started selling hoyt or mathew bows would you stop buying them (or what ever bow you are into).

    I think you should ask yourself the question why isn't walmart selling Hoyt or Mathews bows. Sure the bear bows will kill animals but you also get what you pay for. The reason Walmart sells them is because they are the cheapest bows they can find to sell. They sell quantity not always quality.

    Are Bear bows and Fred Bear bows different bows? I actually won an ebay auction for a bear buckmaster before I made this post. It is a full package deal, and the bidding wasn't up that high. I bidded on it think about the Fred Bear bows I saw for $300-$400. So I threw a bid on it and ended up winning it.

    Here is the bow:

    I reached my paypal spending limit (with out entering bank account info), so I need my mom (its my moms paypal account) to enter her bank account info. I don't know if she will want to do that, so I may not be able to pay for the bow anyways. I didn't even know there was a limit

    So, should I try and get out of paying for it? I will ask the seller and tell him about my paypal issue. Or should I just buy the bow? Its going to cost $230 plus any taxes.

    I took the liberty of having a look at the bow. This is just my opinion mind you, but I wouldn't buy it. You will very likely end up regretting the decision and then have to try to unload the bow. Your funds are limited - spend them wisely.

    Save your money a bit more. There are lots of deals out there and you can do better.

    You probably won't like to read this and I know it is hard to wait, but it will payoff for you in the long run.

    Just let the buyer know that because of your limit you are in an Insufficient Funds position - regretfully.

    Good luck,
    Dan.

    Okay, I sent him a email telling him about my paypal account and I offered to pay the cost to relist it.

    Its too easy to bid on ebay and get carried away.
