Bushnell V3 and Garmin G6 in Orlando/Kissimmee area Florida

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Travelling to Florida (Kissimmee) for a holiday in two weeks time. If I can drag my 11yr old son away from the theme parks, I'm looking to get a Busnhell V3 for sure when I'm over there as the prices work out much cheaper than in the UK. Also possibly a Garmin G6 for Mrs triestogolf. Can anyone advise as to where I can get the best deal on these items, especially the Bushnell? I also thought about a Nikon Coolshot but having done a quick internet search these don't seem to be as readily available as the Bushnell?

Thanks for reading and for your suggestions.

I would think that your best shot would be at either Golf Galaxy or Golfsmith. Both have locations fairly close to where you'll be. I think you can even order on-line for in-store pick-up just to ensure they're not out of stock when you arrive..... Welcome to the site, and have fun while you're over here! :beer:

You may want to follow David's advice and order online and have it shipped to the store... There was one Garmin G6 remaining between the 2 Dicks stores and 1 Golf Galaxy in my city (SLC). I bought the last one, due to an unfortunate occurrence (my Leupold laser was stolen last weekend at the course, and this was a cheap alternative replacement... 10% off for floor model, plus $20 coupon).

    • I wouldn't want to see it change as I consider it kind of set in stone because of the historical stats/database/comparibility. But I wish that it had always been larger.  The whole idea of putting this a ball in a hole 400 yards away using a set of sticks... the hole being so small weights the last 1% of the distance (16 feet or so) way to high).  Say it takes 2 shots to cover 396 yards and then three putts to finish the last 4 yards, that seems way out of wack.  I'd like to see a putt from 8 feet be about as easy as a 4 footer, however that would change the hole size. Why is the Golf Hole Size 4.25 Inches in Diameter?  
    • That was an awesome video. A little like a 'goofus and galant' for the links. Was it actually done for a country club or just for humor? It actually had some good info, though I take issue with Chip's bunker raking technique. By not lifting the rake at the end of his strokes he left quite a few large clumps of sand. 
    • It only looks like a smaller target. If you miss or barely knick the ball that putt probably wouldn't have gone in a golf hole. It takes about the same amount of precision to putt into a hole as it does to hit a golf ball as a target. As such, I agree that it makes a good substitute when the practice green is crowded. 
    • It would never happen, but I would like to see two holes on each green. Obviously not close to each other. This may help to keep the greens in better shape and also speed up play. 
    • We still have a situation today with a relatively uneducated public. Next time you're at the supermarket, ask someone to name the Secretary of State (BTW it's John Kerry). Ask someone to name their State Senator or State Representative or the two houses in the legislative branch of their state. How about name the governor? Or Mayor? Ask them what Damascus is (it's the capitol of Syria). Ask them what Kabul is. How about Yemen. Ask them what Mosul is. Then ask them what Utah is. You get my point. Getting rid of the Electoral College would require amending the constitution. This requires that this Amendment pass the House of Representatives AND the Senate with a 2/3 majority, then be ratified by 3/4 of the states. Normally it takes about 10 years when you can get anything through Congress. Try to get that to happen given current divisions in our country. We have this discussion every four years. We've had it since 1968. I think we'd have better luck at the state level trying to get proportional divisions.  How the electoral votes are divided depends upon the constitution of your state. Your state can amend its constitution to divide up its electoral votes proportionally or keep it winner take all, but any change will require a state constitutional amendment.  Changes as such might make third parties more viable. Major parties are loathe to do this because a viable third party candidate might garner enough votes to trigger various mechanisms outlined in the Constitution. 1) If there is a 269-269 tie, the House chooses the President and the Senate chooses the Vice President. 2) If no one wins enough (say if that third party candidate who is leading in Utah won the state), the House will choose the President from the three candidates who won the most electoral votes, and the Senate would choose the Vice President from the three VP candidates. There have been ties three times in our history. Proportional division would likely lead to scenario 2 taking place quite often.
