    In WW2, the lunatic Jack Churchill used a longbow on a few German sentries. What worked 35,000 years ago continues to do the biz, it seems.

    Also, a story from a few years back about an incident said to have taken place in North Hollywood. A man was found floating face-down in his backyard pool with three arrows in his back. His hysterical widow told the police that she had found him there after she went out to see how he was getting on cleaning up after a hunting session, and that the bow had somehow gone off by accident while he was cleaning it.

    The inside of her left forearm told a different story...

    Ordinary not so smart not so aware sheeple folks do not realize how dangerous a good bowman can be. Compare the bowman at long range to the short range quick draw mythical wild west gunslinger or the knife range quick drawing Samurai swordsman.

    Keep you eyes open. That includes the wimpy guy or girl with the STRUNG bow in his or her hands. Watch were the arrows are. If the bowman has one already notched it is probably already too late. We train that if confronted with a guy with a strung bow ...

    And that guy notches an arrow, present and shoot the threat. Most law enforcement may NOT understand that so good luck legally. Young folks today should spend as much time at the butts as they spend at the range. Might do them some good in the future.
