First of all congratulations on the great shooting!!:)

For binos. I would not go with anything over 8x if you plan on shooting any IBO tournaments. I am not sure about ASA....if you go to the webpage they will have the rules listed. I use Vortex sidewinders 8x42...they work great for 3D and indoor....very clear and bright!! The best thing about them is that the price is very reasonable. :wink:

If you want something that will keep your cam's out of the dirt and allows you to set your bow down then you can go with a pro-pod....you can buy one from Lancaster for aroud 24.00. If you would rather hold your bow then you could get either a bow sling or a hip-clip........good luck and I hope this helps :)

stuff

You will want all the stuff you can get. I thought I had it all figured out and then I went to Metropolis and shot in the big tourney, then I had to get more stuff. It's all about the stuff!!!! It is great fun though and you will love it.

Most of all HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!
