Default Bushnell range finder

I bought my first range finder today money is real tight right now so I couldn't spend very much but bass pro had the bushnell sport 450 on sale for 120 bucks so far I have checked it with my tape measured bow range and it is spot on which makes me real happy to get a accurate piece of equipment for such a cheap price. So my ? is do any of you have experience with this model?

I believe I have the same model, my company offered several items in a catalog for 30 years of service and I picked it. To be honest my son uses it for archery especially for sight in measurements and it seems right on. I will use it in 2010 for elk hunting. Haven't had any problems with it and its user friendly.

I have the same model I bought mine last fall on Ebay NEW for $80.00. I think a lot of us are in the same boat as you "money is Tight"
it seems to be accurate. it says in the specs +_ 1 yrd I have tried it to 100Yds & seems to be what they say +_ 1 yrd I have noticed in certain conditions it gives an unrealistic number so I always range two to 3 times just to make sure.
