You can say that about any of the Contender/Encore pistols. Heck, for scoped big game hunting, you're ill-advised to shoot offhand with a SBH, unless the range is less than 50 yards. Some guys like the added challenge of using different tools to get the job done, like picking a recurve instead of a compound bow. Diff'rnt strokes...I'm curious. Why not have a rifle made? With the long barrel and bipod shooting at long distance, it seems more like a rifle with the stock removed. Just seeking to understand.
