Yesterday, I went and visited a friend that lives down the road. He owns a small gift shop called Round Valley Trading Post and he loves to barter. That is where I picked up my ASM 1860 Army cap & ball revolver and my C9. Yesterday, while visiting I started asking him about the various compound bows that he had hanging from the ceiling. Then we went out back and shot a few of them for a couple of hours. I had never shot a bow of any kind in all of my 57 years, so I wasn't expecting to hit anything smaller than a broad side of a barn from the inside..... Well needless to say.... I came home with one that I was shooting some nice groups with from 20yds, 30yds and 40yds. Wow.... there are a LOT of technical stuff about compound bows!!! And arrows for them too!!!! Anyways....I got an older (don't know what year cuz I can't even find one on the interwebs....) Jennings Acclaim that is supposed to be a 60 to 70# DW. I was using a mechanical release, so I need to pick up one of those as he didn't have any that he wanted to sell. The bow came with a stabilizer, an 8 arrow matching camo quiver and a Montana BlackGold 3 pin FO sights and the string has a peep. I had a blast! but boy O boy is my drawing shoulder ever sore today! Any other archers here? Archery season starts Aug 30th here in Idaho. edit:where is the archery section?
