    I agree Capt. A nice Bow Basics thread with pictures would be nice.

    It's an older model. Search for any of the Bearcat models that look like this one on Craigslist.

    I bought the bow off a guy that needed some money. We're the same height and size so it's probably close, but yes I'm letting a guy I work with take it home to his wife who is going to go over it with me. Then we're going to go shoot. It had a 29" draw length and a 65# draw weight. I understand the dangers of dry firing and the such. I just didn't know what "accessories" to get that were functional. Thanks for the info though. I did not know that about wood arrows.

    Hello from SW Missouri

    I'm so lazy. lol. My name is Jason and I live in the Springfield area. I'm into the SHTF stuff and my wife is also, but she's a last minute kind of girl. lol. I've got plenty of weaponry and I've just recently gotten into knives. I've never been a knife guy so I don't know much about them. We keep about a weeks worth of food on hand. We live in a small town just far enough from the city to be ok. The grocery store is 3 blocks away and I'm on the fire department which is also about 3 blocks away so there are plenty of tools at my disposal. I'm a huge cb junkie. lol. I also just recently bought an older compound bow for silent operation. I'll try to do as much reading as I can before I go posting questions, as most that I will have, have probably been asked a million times before. Also, my hobbies change often and my money is sparse, so I may disappear for a month or two, then appear again as I jump from 1 hobby to another. lol. Thanks for the site. I like it already.

    You can still listen to the ham bands. In SHTF situations, thats what you're going to want to listen to anyway. Thats how people keep contact. Cb's and amateur radio.

    The Walking Dead ~ Zombie Talk in General

    I love the show, but I'm glad they finally ended the Sophia debacle. They were dragging that out too far.

    Survival Movies

    Red Dawn is one of my favorites. Winters Bone was filmed near my house. Surviving the Game is a pretty good movie. I haven't seen Jeremiah Johnson.

    They took my guns and my money

    Nevermind. I misread your original post. That sucks to hear though. Thats why I always buy from an individual.

    It depends on the scanner you have. I keep a Bearcat BC550A handy. It scans most Fire/EMS/Police frequencies, plus I can scan several different Ham bands. I listen to a lot of Ham Nets on my way home from work on most nights.
