That's quite alright. No apology necessary at this point. Your statement that you made elsewhere, "All of the above, and a salesmen first and foremost," pretty much does it for me. You bet, sales first and foremost. After all, as long as you can sell the fucking things who needs quality, craftsmanship, and pride of workmanship, right?

I imply nothing. You yourself made it clear that your primary concern is being a salesman. And besides, you, me and everybody else here all know had you not been caught with your pants down, you would have made no "apology", nor would you have done anything to correct your misrepresentation of your relationship with Peregrine Archery.

Irvine, California US. The basic red oak bows are from Phil Silva while the premium bows are not.


You have premium Longbows? Best thing I saw on your site were hickory backed red oak bows. I have to admit I am curious as to why you state that "This bow may potentially take a few extra weeks to construct." when they take half a day to bang out, LOL.


In defense of Phil Silva, he makes no extraordinary claims for his bows. They are cheepie board bows that he bangs out by the bushel and he will freely tell you that. Anyone who can make an honest living in archery has my respect, LOL. I knew that was Phil's work the instant I went to your website.

I deserve anything you say against me, however my products are all high quality import and come guaranteed. I have never ripped off a customer.

You should have thought about that before doing what you did. We're pretty fucking open to people in business here, but you can't be a slippery douche bag. You understand? Now you just went and fucked yourself. Your bows can be made of solid gold and nobody is going to want a single goddamn one now. Have fun at the breadlines, you worthless shit-heel. Go peddle your cheap, Chinese crap elsewhere.

Half a day? I watched Jimmy Taylor take one from glued-up blank to strung up and shooting, including laquer finish, in 17 minutes flat. That was several years ago, before everyone hated him. Cancer got him a few weeks ago, so he won't be making any more.

You got a template, a bandsaw, a bubble sander, and a little talent you can have one semi-tillered and shootable in a half-hour easy--less with practice.

Another member of our Behind the Curtain Dept found this:

And we're also supposed to believe that he's a bowyer?
I truly despise those people who are just smart enough to believe that they are smarter than everybody else and we're just idiots. Such people invariably turn out to be deeply stupid. And having or pursuing a college degree only tends to make their delusions of adequacy even worse.
Just a young douche bag in the making.

I find it amusing as hell though that at Trad Talk everything is fine and all is forgiven.
Like O'l Abe sed, you CAN fool some of the people all of the time.
