Two observations! One, those varmits were sure chewing on you guys. Two, You need to wear safety glasses as you only have one set of eyes. I know, it don't happen very often, but if it happens one time, you will live with it the rest of your lives! Ask Joerg! It looked like great fun, I like to shoot cans myself! -- Tex

I think butterfly just means you pull way way back. My pull distance measures 58 inches. You just have to know where your hands are when pulling back.

Usually I'd agree with you there mate, but one of the main advantages of the butterfly, as I see it, is that if the bands break at the forks they won't hit you in the eyes as your hands no where near them!

Sam if you think about it the bands are right by your eyes if they should happen to break at the fork they will do worse than smak you it will be more of a cut.

WOW!
Great shooting to say the least! As far as eating lots of garlic or brewers yeast and other such remedies, I think it just seasons your blood for the little critters!
I use the strongest concentration of Deet! Ya know, the stuff that makes your lips go numb and makes ya can't breath for the firs 20 minutes.


Again, GREAT SHOOTING! Are you sure you didn't have someone in the back with a pellet gun!?!

Wrong, It is a false dicotomy that exists between Safe and Poison. These two opposites oppose each other as only one can be true. Therefore there is no such thing as Safe Poison. Poison is just that in any measurement.
