Gotta Sell a Bow!!

Just spent about $380 I dont have... Went ahead and bought the dang heat strips for gluing up bows. Gonna make it reall nice. And much faster...and I wont have to build a big huge oven for my one piece bows I'll be building this winter...

Sweet!

Gun Control - A theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.

He makes some outstanding longbows. I have a three piece. I would gladly trade a lot of my bows but never my Saphire Hawk. Can't wait to see the one piece. More and more I have realised the only time a three piece is convienient or necessary for me is when I take it on my bike.
