Product codes for the 550 went live today, so I ordered a dozen of them to start. Ship date is projected to be July 27. Also ordered a couple 545's for comparison. I guess it's an understatement to say I'm anxious to get my hands on them. :dance:

I'm not sitting around a campfire right now, but I'm in pretty much the same shape as if I were. :happygrin:

Figure about $50 more than a 346.

Just remember this important detail Bob - you're greedy order of 562's (that you placed before mine :p ) allowed mine to come in first!! :D

So maybe just maybe my 550's will git herr ferst :banana:

Nah I'm glad you found the number. I hadnt checked all week. I've been bustin ass to make sure the next two weeks while the old man and I swap vacations wouldn't be so difficult for us to work alone. I just don't know if I want mine ported or not right off the bat!!!!

Part of what happened with the 562's was at that time, they wouldn't ship a saw without the B&C you ordered. So, if you ordered a SKU that was in stock and I didn't.............. But you got your 550 order in the same night, so they should ship about the same time.

I didn't actually find the number. :meh: I had been checking every day last week except Friday which was too busy. But I got a phone call about them going live. Placed my order while I was still on the phone.

Also found out that Ranchers with AT won't be here til after the first of next year.

I still like to think it was greed ;) :banana:

And I'll need til next year to get rid of my ranchers. Can't hardly give those things away.

That's an easy choice ;)

Buy the XT. Do whatever with it, you have probably a good couple of months to have it your way. Then dump that promiscuous little maneater for the younger, slimmer, prettier new model :hitit:

I could do that or buy another rifle or scope and then when the 550 comes out let a few people get them and then see if it's better than a 346.

"Better" may be the relative term of the century. Now when you're watching the owner of a new 550XP through your new rifle scope, please please please don't forget your trigger yields different results. We'll know the results if you mysteriously stop posting then show up on da nooz :eek2:

Well the wife will actually go shoot with me. She wouldn't go cut wood. She would occasionally video a little for me but other than that she wouldn't even come near saws.

Well that usually ends up being a deciding factor right there. Probably a reason I'm selling my snowmobile and trailer to explore other options - options to which the wife might enjoy participating along with me. I love snowmobiling like nothing else, I'd still say it's my favorite hobby, more so than saws or guns or atv's or trucks or even dare I say it..... Beer :(

I've been trying to get her into something outdoors besides bird watching. I don't mind it if there's owls or big birds of prey to watch but little yard birds is boring.
