Im pretty clueless about these different bows, so with that as a qualifier, on RT's reporting, it seemed from RT's photos that the arrows used were pretty solid steel/metal. Not anything of a "light duty" nature, and obviously quite lethal.As a bow hunter, I'm wondering if he used a compound, longbow or recurve.
Aluminum used to be pretty common for arrow shafts for conventional and compound bows (I learned using wood!?!). These days a serious arrow might be Al but I use and usually see carbon-fiber. The high-end ones I've seen up close were Al-clad C-fiber: very thick.Im pretty clueless about these different bows, so with that as a qualifier, on RT's reporting, it seemed from RT's photos that the arrows used were pretty solid steel/metal.

I could be wrong, but that was my impression. If I'm right, the perp was probably using a high-end bow.
Well, I'm D.E. with handgun but more accurate yet with my compound bows. At 20yds, I score about the same as with a pistol at 15yds. With my mistol, sight radius is ~6"; with my bows sight radius is 29 5/8" (IIRC). My best shooting pistols have crisp light triggers; with my compound bows it's the same crisp light trigger for aboth bows.Reuters: We can't find page may have been moved.
I am in a way surprise they don't already, So people are better with bow and arrow than I'm with pistol.
Think I would rather be shoot with a bullet than an arrow!
And registration and a 5-day waiting period and universal background checks. We have to close the archery show loophole. It's for the children, don'tcha know.The solution?
Bow licensing, along with common sense bow and arrow carry laws including proficiency testing,
Dammit....I read through the entire thread with that thought and you beat me to it.Hi-cap quivers will be the death of us all
