Arrow shootin' again!
« on: September 26, 2011, 01:15:23 AM »

  After what is a little over 20 years now that I have shot an arrow, one was shot a week ago.   8)

 Its new to me and really ain't what shootin' a bow is but is the next best thing for me, I went and bought a crossbow.
  After a work related accident that left me one winged for a while and not being able to hold and pull a coumpound bow anymore, after rehab, I sold my PSE coumbound and went without shooting any arrows and never thought of doing it again.
  With all these new crossbows on the market I went and tried one out, well I could load one and hold it with the help of a telescopic stick and shoot arrows once again. These things are not like a bow, not even close, way to noisy but man do the arrows travel  :o  The one I have has numbers sitting at 330f/s ya can't see the arrow leave or travel to the target.
 My new Cross bow is from Arrow Precision model  Inferno Hellfire

 So far I like what I got and I am enjoying once again shooting arrows at a target, might take this out on a hunt yet! :)

Having fun in life is the ticket to enjoying life. The model name of the cross bow even fits you.  ;D   :D

Bucks been hiding down here haven't seen a shooter(must be 4 points on one side). Went to look at some land to buy 17acres and jumped two big bucks in the middle to upper 150 size. Almost made the land worth what he wanted but not quite. :D I guess I need to feed them, but they won't let us.
Too much work-not enough pay.
