Don,
Have you been shooting it? Thoughts?

Re: Mechanical head premature opening test (Graphic heavy)

It’s good to finally see “launch” rather than “speed”. Clearly and simply, it’s launch acceleration force that can prematurely open expandible broad heads, not speed. I have used Spitfires since their first month on the market, but tried a few others since a premature opening a few times. Now, I’ll ...

Take care bud.
You have a positive attitude that's important
Those were my exact thoughts, also. All at home? Wife on antibiotics From China ?
Praying for the best. It’ll be good to be on the other side of this.

Re: Multiple crossbows

This is just for me and definitely not necessarily the answer for all others, but generally the ease of use (frequently smaller, lighter) and optics on the crossbow are the determiners.
I primarily hunt for larger deer which I normally encounter at late dusk. Optical quality is a factor at this time.

AJ,
Sorry you’re going thru this. We went through this 17 years ago. I’ll be praying for you both.

Re: CORONAVIRUS SCARE- INFORMATION WE ARE NOT RECEIVING

That “no hunting for non-residents” picture, surely is a joke. I think it is a paradox on a similar “game and fish announcement” done in another state, I think Colorado. I just posted it because I think it is funny. “Congestion on the boat ramp or in the deer woods” seems a bit far fetched. But, I c...

Re: If You Have To Cough

As referenced earlier, the purpose of the mask would be to greatly reduce the mist coming from a cough or sneeze. The mist that carries the viruses. So, the mask would be for helping prevent spreading any viruses to others, not immediate self protection; but indirectly for eventual self protection. ...

Re: CORONAVIRUS SCARE- INFORMATION WE ARE NOT RECEIVING

Boo quote: “I won't blame the media. Remember the ammo shortage? It's idiotic people who are over compensating. “ I was in a sporting goods store two days ago, and powder, bullets, cartridges were bulging off shelves and very reasonably priced. A year or two ago, these very shelves were normally emp...

Re: A question for the accuracy nuts

I obsess over accuracy. The answers given here are excellent , IMO. Just a few additional thoughts: 1)the finer the range marks, the more precise the aiming, 2) the greater the magnification, the more precise the aiming, 3) head centered in the scope reduces parallex concerns, 4) all else equal, I'v...

I posted the above because I actually have been in a situation where I experienced true, raw mob/gang/pack type of irrational hatred. This just has to be seen to fully appreciate just how bad it is.

Re: OT - What's Going On in VA

Arkansas has an advanced concealed carry (expect other states do also). I have this. When we travel, I take my pistol. If states don’t allow me to even have one in my car, I don’t go there. Years ago, I was not allowed to enter Canada due to my pistol, so I drove back to the nearest town in the USA ...
