Oh, great. So now we have to worry about whether we're entering bow-free zones?

Ever since our earlier thread where I learned about the penetration power of a broadhead, I have a new respect for the deadly potential of a bow and arrow.

I just saw a Cabela's ad for a crossbow that will shoot an arrow (or is it a bolt?) at over 500 ft/sec.

Price was around $3k . . . https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en/ravin-crossbows-r500-crossbow-package

The one picture of an arrow I saw it looked like a target tip.  For an attack like that Iím surprised he didnít use hunting broadheads.

Any word on if he used Jorg Sprave's little bow magazine invention?
