"I am a stone. I do not move. Very slowly, I put snow in my mouth and he won't see my breath. I take my time. . . I have only one bullet. I aim at his eye. Very gently, my finger presses on the trigger. I do not tremble. I have no fear"

Just bought a NEW old bow:

1970 Zebrawood Ben Pearson recurve
Pull: 40#
Length: 52"
Draw: 28"
Sights: none
Letoff: none
Stabilizer: none
Rest: shelf
Silencers: Genuine Musk Ox
Release: fingers
Arrows: wooden sticks with feathers on them
Broadheads: Bear without inserts
Weight: about a pound

O yeah, I just bought one of them wheelie ones,,Browning Midas 3,,it weighs 2.5 pounds stripped, so I might be able to hold it up.

I shoot recurve because my left shoulder has 2 tendons gone, and my right shoulder is only at 30% because of bad rotator, so I can't hold the weight of over 2 or 3 pounds straight out. I do have a crossbow & disability permit, but like the vertical stuff better. If anyone knows of a compound under 3 pounds let me know!!!

PSE Thunderbolt @ 70lbs, Winners Choice string and cable,Copper John Dead Nuts Pro II, CAP WB, BowJax silencers (limbs, string, CG), Easton Epic 400's (older style...got a pile of them) w/blazers, Muzzy Phantoms 125gr., Carbon X-Ring stabilizer.

Good 'ol workhorse of a bow. Keep thinking that I'll get a new bow each year but just can't justify it as this one works so well.
