I went to town today to find that cross bow sting i need . I took it to Well known sport shop locally . It looks like three strings with all kinds of pulleys and such , we'll beyond my simple mind so professionals it is . The guy looked at and said well , it the string all right . Also said a cheap string will throw accuracy off to . Hey , I have never had a compound cross bow so I buy the expensive one and had to order it . How long ? Ten days . Me.........where,s it coming from ? Indiana . Ok then call when it gets here . I have an old recurve so I,m gonna play until lit gets here . Oh yeah , that funny thing , a lady , small a petite , 100ish or so pounds said she wanted a CC weapon for protection , he picked up a Ruger 22 . She had a bullet in her pocket and asked do have anything this size bullet in a gun this size of the Ruger ? She was holding 45/70 .....Eeeeeek.! Lol .
