    Default Whats wrong with this picture!?!

    Just when you think you have seen everything. This is from a ad for a take down for sale. Apparently the owner shot it a few times and decided traditional archery wasn't really for him.......wonder why.

    Wow,
    I wonder if it is the limbs or the riser that is backwards? I would love to watch the guy string that bad boy.

    Wow,

    I wonder how many times he tried to shoot it before he gave up. Bet the string was loose in that configuration.

    On second thought, maybe he was left handed and thought he could reverse the limbs and shoot it lefty.

    Silly Man! How did he string it?? Did somebody get a good deal on it after his failed attempts?

    The auction is still active but so far it has no bids. I've been smiling about that picture ever since I saw it, if nothing else the guy cheered me up considerably. At least it's a inexpensive bow and doesn't have a pic of him at full draw with it! A couple of months ago I finally found a 1967 polar so I excitedly clicked on the link. There for all the world to see is a kid in his very best gang banger outfit with the bow strung backwards at full draw! I nearly barfed on the keyboard. Needless to say I passed on that bow. I have to wonder why he didn't notice how uncomfortable the handle was or that the string groves were on the wrong side?

    I wonder if it ever crossed his mind to ask somebody for help. Wow. That's great, Rick. Some people.

    ??...is there any way to get ahold of this guy to let him know about his mistake?
    - it might change his mind of selling the bow, and encourage him to learn to shoot... and open up a whole new world for him
    -just a thought, -

    ...after all....hopefully he doesn't have any kids yet-
    (to have exemplified something scary...)
