Very true. Before I got my first one I spent a good bit of time on the phone with Bob Meiser. He spent way more time answering my dumb questions than should be expected of anyone. When All was said and done, by the time I was ready to buy I knew just what to get and how it would work. Find someone to help you find what you will be happy with before pulling the trigger on buying.
