“mobilemail”Skip the big box store stuff and go for the 34, when you get it you will see why. The discovery is also a good option if you want to pony up for the pump.


Ya I just may end up doing that based on the feedback, but usually (with anything else anyway) I find outside of the big stores you are basically paying 10-20% more for the same thing.. For sure that’s the case w/ other sporting goods, fishing gear, firearms, etc.. etc.. they carry good stuff but do not need to make so much $$ off each piece and get it cheaper because they are so big. It kinda sounds like in this case though, for whatever reason, what they carry at your big stores is just not the quality stuff.

Now I did not go looking for Diana at any big stores, so it’s possible it just was over the $250 mark I drew and hence my search didn’t net that model.
