Exactly! It's no longer the weapon of choice, so no one is practicing to take out some fools with a longbow.

I realize a lot of people still bow hunt, but they are, usually, respectful hunters who enjoy the "challenge" of stalking their prey and eating what they shoot. They aren't running up into a mall and flinging arrows across the damn food court....

J.D...."They aren't running up into a mall and flinging arrows across the damn food court...."

I always enjoy a great line. I also enjoy masterful thread drift.

But, getting back to the lurkers, I have gotten to a point where I no longer find it worthwhile to debate hoplophobes. The Brady gang and their ilk are positively cult like in their beliefs. I don't have any interest in de-programming them.

I will continue to do my best as a responsible and civil firearms owner, a steward of the Second Amendment.

To the gun banners, fear mongers, hoplophobes and Marxists attempting to disarm the People, I say: MOLON LABE!

The fact that there are thousands more firearms and bow owners that are law abiding than there are murderous whack jobs. A sociopath will still be a sociopath even if the gun had never been invented.

If guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have guns.

I love crossbows. Mainly because I'm left handed and I can barely see out of my left eye. I shoot rightie, but drawing a bow rightie us tough, especially when it is cold.

I live in farm country (and hills), and I've never heard of someone losing livestock due to poachers with crossbows. Maybe the guys you know have bad neghbors. Has to be small stock, because I have my doubts about a crossbow throwing a bolt with enough energy to drop a cow.
