Re: archery question ?
Remington.. I had an older "golden eagle" compound with composite wood limbs.. I was told to never use it, in fear of the limbs separating in their old age... So I went to the local "super sporting store" and picked up an inexpensive "modern" compound It was a refurbished unit).. I like it (spent less than 250) and the guys there helped me "tune" and sight it to "my personal" shooting abilities... Ill rip fletchings off my target arrows at 45 yards... now I just shoot one practice arrow at a time because my groups are that tight.
I dont know what state your in... But Michigan allows cross bows for every one now (not just disabled people) Sales went way up!
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
