After shooting the new bow these last few days I picked up the ShadowCarp bow again. While shooting it I couldn't help but think that there was no way this bow is only one pound or less in draw weight. I checked the new one at 43-44#, put the ShadowCarp on and hit 40# exactly. That explained the difference my arms feel! :lol: I must have checked it before final sanding and rounding of edges. Either that or I didn't use the AMO standards when checking. Either way I'm happy. :mrgreen:
So I got to wondering if I could possibly use some of my old 400 spine arrows laying in a case doing nothing with this new bow. I put 300 grain up front and took them out to play. Did very well, The bareshaft kicked the nock end right but it was only a 28 1/2" arrow. The point hit right on target. The rest were 29, and 30", all with fletching but flew nice.
So how did I save money you may be wondering? I was shooting at a penny and never touched it! :oops: Shots were 15 and then 20, didn't shoot bareshaft at 20 though, it was the first one I shot. In the picture it hit low but my first shot with it was at a pine cone and I hit it although the Nock was to the right.

What did you think the ShadowCarp poundage was before today?

He's one of those statue-tearing-down protesters that want to pretend the Civil War never happened.
LOL

When I checked the ShadowCarp it was 42#, but must have been before finishing.
The shiny penny was safe! :cry: :lol:

Before dark this evening I slipped out to settle the score with a shiny Lincoln, but this time I was serious, I took a couple broadheads. I was content with their flight but decided not to kill the penny. I was inspired by Graps story about lining his broadheads so that they go between the ribs, on both sides! So instead of shooting the penny I only cut the tape off the edge of it, had to have my broadhead flat upon impact to accomplish this! :lol: :mrgreen:
See what an inspiration you are Graps. :idea:

As it got dark I thought since I couldn't see the other penny that it would be fair to shoot at it. I shot a few but couldn't see where I hit until I got up close. That's when I discovered that Lincoln had cheated and turn sideways on me. I had two arrows down there that should have been hits. I guess he wanted to make it a little more challenging! :lol: :cry:

He's already been shot once, at the Ford's Theater. A man shouldn't have to suffer the same fate twice.
No wonder he turned. Shame on you, Tony.

Poor fellow, today the ShadowCarp took a stab at him. I'm convinced he dodges!
