Recommended Posts

Yes they do lots more booms. but you know they like it. Sounds like you spent some time in Sill, Capt Bart No Commissioned Officers are on par with a Spec 4 not too far down but at least they know they gotta work on it lol! Give me til after the holidays guy and I promise I'll get it out as soon as I can

As a graduate of 'Comanche County Cannon Cockers College' I went to Sill 4 times in a little over 6 years. They liked to bring us home just to make us feel loved!

 

Take your time, sir, but we are looking forward to the vid.

Recently bought a take down bow on Ebay, got it really cheap. I was amazed at how compact it is when taken apart, the whole thing is a little over a foot. I also got a fishing rig for it.

I have not used it yet but it fits in my BOB real nice. I hope to get some practice with it next summer.

@Warrior, I thought I was an avid archery nut but you have me outdone. You probably shoot or have shot with some of my friends if you've done any of the national shoots. I know with your job, time for "play" is minimal or non-existent. I'm glad you can articulate the subject matter much better than I on this. I look forward to the video as well.

listen to everything warrior7r is telling you, i have bow hunted for 20 odd years and everything he has said to totally correct! i have shot Bear compounds and PSE compounds for years always felt like i was giving the deers a sporting chance and love the thrill of it! but what ever you do do not dry fire a bow. seen a friend pick up a bear compound while we were retrieving our arrows from a target and he dry fired it and wound up in the hospital with several pieces of fiberglass in his face and almost lost a eye the top limb shattered due to the stress and exploded in his face!

always go to a good sporting goods shop not wallyworld and get your equipment. have it set up for you, your draw length,draw weight,tuned and correct arrow length and weight and broadhead weight and design only way to get a good straight flight.

I have never seen that happen and hope I never do but I was in a sporting goods store once when an employee was showing someone a bow. the employee turned his back for a moment to say something to a passing employee and durring that moment the customer pulled back on the bow like he was going to shoot it. The employee turned back around and pretty much freaked out and lined himself up to help get the bow out of that position.

I bought a bow from someone once, for a videogame, it was ghetto but better then the toy ones. You had to put it together and it was just a normal drawstring. I could carry it in my pocket and put it together, but one day my friend pulled it back far and it fell apart. He didnt get hurt but thats the only reason I never went full power on it. With dull arrows at $3.00 each I had fun as a kid. But you just gotta be careful.

 

Once without safety glasses I missed my target, hit concrete and the arrow hit my forehead, it was flat so it didnt hurt that much. I wore safety glasses and it probably saved my eye the few times after that.

 

BTW speaking of close calls, check this out....

I used to shoot a bow when i was a kid, however grew up and didnt pick up a bow again untill i was 40 and had joined the sca (sca.org midevil reeactment) and got into the archery part of it. Learned how to make my own arrows, Longbow and crossbow and even made a slingshot bow.

 

As Warriot 7 mentioned the equipment has to match up togather and fitted or you can get hurt. and it requires lots of practice both physical and mental.

Bows... Are obviously quiet, which is a good thing. But its gotta have enough power to pierce something.

 

I like the idea of a crossbow, Like that dude in "The Walking Dead', take out a zombie from 50 yards without attracting attention.

Penatration, no prob with an arrow.

Had a bet with a fella. I shot an arrow totally through a thick catalog, his 30.30 stopped somewhere in the middle.

Also missed a target one day at the range. The arrow went completely through a 1/2" piece of plywood. My compounds draw is only set at 63lbs.

Yeah, Desert, folks seem to not understand the penetration those arrows have once they leave the string. Even on the little homebuilt bows I've carved out over the years with a draw weight of around 40lbs (Just a guess never actually measured them) the arrows can zip through plywood or make it a good ways into a phone book with a field point. I know more than a few bow-hunters who've lost arrows after putting them completely through a deer including a shoulder blade or two. Penetration and wound trauma from a bow isn't something to scoff at.

Old thread revival! So I never have done anything with that Lynx I bought. Mainly for the same reason that I haven't been around here. Time. So a few weeks ago I got into the hunting/survival mood again (I'm blaming the cool weather and winter coming) and I decided that I'm going hunting this year. Just so happens a few days ago a left handed 2010 Martin Bengal came up on Craigslist fairly cheap so I bought it. I think it's a good upgrade to the Martin Lynx I have. I work a few blocks away from one of the best archery shops in the area or so my bow hunting friends tell me so i think I'll drop it by and have it fitted to me and do some learning. Here's a pic of the Bengal.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
