Chills was right

At the may Blackhawk day, I was having some wallowing issues. Chills hands me his digital tire gauge and both tires show under 30 psi, but I trusted mine, I own a high dollar analog tire gauge about 4 years old. Turns out my big buck piece is crap. off by 6 psi at 35 psi. Shoulda listened then

I saw a magazine test once on tire gauges and some of the most accurate were the cheapo pocket types. Not all of them, just certain brands. Luckily, I have an instrument lab at work that can cal my digital gauges.

Yea - I guess it can't hurt to cross check with another gauge.

When you thought Chills gauge was way off - I'm surpirsed you both didn't seek a third opinion !!
