Angry Even criminals are finding it hard to get guns and ammo.

Well, I guess they will be a ban on the sale of bow and arrows here soon.

Sounds like the goverment wants to try to control everything. You would think someone up there could see where the problem is...but what do we know, right?

I think they should just ban crime! Or at least make it illegal!

I believe that would solve everything!

Doctors at St. Barnabas surgically removed the arrow - a Black Hawk 4000 ACA that is used for target practice and can travel more than 1,000 feet. The arrow is 30 1/2 inches long and has an all-black shaft. One of its three feathers was missing, police say. A larger-tipped hunting arrow would have caused a more serious wound.

It's not a really bad area of New York, btw. The town of Yonkers where she's from is also where Kimber is headquartered and makes the 1911s.

"Police say the fiberglass arrow with yellow feathers is the type used for practice or hunting."

Is there another kind?

I always thought the name of the town "Flushing" in NY was about as bad as they could do for a name. But I lived near Ho-Ho-Kus and Mahwah growing up in a town named Paramus (literally Land where the wild turkey roam from the Leni Lenapi Indians). Nicknames for people from the town were Parasites and Paramecium.

Man, that is a great place to be from.

I did, it was ok till he started getting all crazy calling his wife telling her to run over there and hold the camera.

I shoot a 31" arrow with a 29" draw length with my compound- with a Muzzy ZER which acts as an overdraw (if I wanted it to). 30" arrow with 28" draw on my recurve.

Sharp broadheads above my left had at full draw just 'freak-me-out', I like the sharp metal out front and in front of my knuckles. My Compund's CT Rhinos are 500 grains, I'm not looking for speed at the cost of safety.
