Sad day for me

Post by W.Miguire » Mon Sep 16, 2019 7:29 pm

Today was a sad day for me . I took a trip off the island where I live to pick up some meds. for my wife and I went to Wally world came out of there and decided to head for Dunums sporting good and headed to the archery department pick up a pack of NAP spitfires and looked over the pack and it said made in Taiwan , thought a min. and put them back and walked out of the store. Just a few years ago I shot with some of the folks that worked for NAP at a local archery range. That what was going thru my mind when I set them back on the shelf. Wonder what happened to those nice folks. :(

Like a lot of others, NAP is now owned by Feradyne outdoors and I will tell you that I recently purchased 2 new packs of spitfires from them and was sick when they arrived. They would barely stay closed while holding them much less trying to shoot them. My spitfire days have come to an end. Of course they were willing to replace them if I paid return postage.........not. And shouldn’t HAVE to rely on bands.

The ones I have do not open easily at all (I have had them for quite a while)
I have 3 naps on the arrows in my quiver, and 6 more in a broad head case.
These should last me for a few years.
I shoot 2.5 deer on average with each broad head. ;)

I don't let that worry me because China is buying our massive debt, until this country stops overspending on the budget! China is keeping us afloat.

You complained about things made offshore, after you spent money at the worlds number one offshore product seller.
