    It kills me that some people are so blind to what is happening in our country. And if people don't wake up we will have Hillary next and she may be worse than Ohbummer, and that is really saying something. As the iron lady said, "The problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people's money". The possibility of 16 straight years of a democrat in office is scary as hell and now I need a beer. At least I know there are some good people on here that see the problem with the DSA. Thanks for the share Ehunter!

    In some states,you have to carry your bow in the case until you get to your tree stand. And if you go to a bow shoot. I know most of us do it anyway. You must have your bow in the case and closed before you leave the range.

    Barry, it's them dang short bows. Personally, the Liberty, 21" ata, would be my choice for a concealed bow. And I've told before about them high capacity quivers...Dang!

    Forget what catalog I use to get, but the was notification in red. "New Jersey residents have to have approval to order compound bows." Now, that's just plain crazy.

    Wait until Hillary and other idiots find out we have armor piercing arrows.... Yep, good ole fashioned cut on contact broadhead will penetrate the some bullet proof vests.....

    From what I understand an arrow with field tip will penetrate those vests better than an expandable bullet.

    Barry, you're right about that. The vests are designed to MAKE a bullet expand, and then absorb the energy and stop it. If something won't expand, it goes through the vests with a bit more ease. We actually shot a Kevlar vest with guns once, then took out our bows. Not a single bullet from pistols penetrated, but a COC broadhead would slice right through.

    Some vests. There are varying degrees. One will stop small diameter bullets, but kind of iffy for more powerful rounds. One will stop powerful rounds, but you get ouched and knocked down. Both are available with the high grade steel or titanium impact plate and you still get knocked down and wonder who nailed ya with a baseball bat. Heavier rounds can do some damage, like broken chests, internal organs bruised. Grazing shots! Wow! Burn like some one put a torch to you. And two degrees of what is better known as flake jackets. Seen news shots of our troops, you've seen them... And then the British army inventors... They've developed a pistol, semi automatic pistol that cranks a projectile at some 6,000 fps and will go right through a military Kevlar equipped Humvee. Makes you wonder what they have for rifles?
    Computer imagine projection (possibly heat imagine), wall so thick, aim, fire... Don't know about the projection and wall, but computer controlled rifles are a reality. Tested many years ago in a bad situation in Florida. "Give up or we'll drop you one at time." A no-go. Said was 100 rounds hit the bad guy before he hit the floor. The rest of the bad guys surrendered....
    Some oscillating attachment to a rifle. Man standing can shoot as accurately as shooting off a bench rest.

    Mmmmmmmm... rattling off....but like in the movie, Michael; "I pay attention." Well, when I want to And my wife thinks I'm deaf
