    I still like hot melt glue.

    It holds well and I can always pull the insert if I need to.

    Or maybe he just knows how to put points in....

    If you know what your doing hotmelt points aren't going to pull before anything else will. The last time I lost a point with hotmelt....never.

    I remember shooting a FITA match a few years ago, those matts are the worst. Everyone that was shooting was loosing points but me and two of my buddies that also use hotmelt.

    I agree with Gator. I like hot melt the best. Although, I have had points pull out using all types of glue. I just chalk it up to operator error

    I live in Michigan.....what do you think.

    If you don't clean the inside of the arrow first you might loose one but I ve never had a problem and I ve shot 3d rounds in a blizzard where we had to wait for a break in the snow cause we couldn't see the white goat to make a shot.

    I have never lost a tip either.

    I will use an ax, hammer and chisel, pocket knife or whatever I have available to dig that tip out of that tree or root or whatever my “dead eye” was aiming at when I busted my arrow.

    I also use hot glue to hold in my inserts or should I say my bow shop does. I haven’t been able to keep an arrow long enough to reinstall anything.

    By the way, how do you all keep those trees from jumping in front of your arrows? I declare I had a pine tree root jump up out of the ground to catch a brand new carbon express 250 last week.
    I started shooting in the barn but the walls seem to move inward every time I shoot. I haven’t figured out how the trusses dip down to catch my arrow without hitting me in the head.

    There must be something I am doing wrong but I just can’t figure out what. My grandson tells me I need to keep my eyes open but I just can stand to watch that high dollar arrow get caught by something like they seem to be doing so I just don’t watch.

    The wife won’t let me take my bow with me when we go to the Zoo. She keeps reminding me of my rabbit hunt when I got kicked out of the pet store.

    Asheboro has some nice roads around it. Ride that way often. Like to have lunch at the K&W

    I think you're wife may be right about the bow at the zoo. The safari would be fun but, the long vacation and the big fines would really kill the mood.

    I work part time just up the street from K&W. I am a part time electrical instructor at Randolph Community College. I did electrical contracting for more years than I can count thus the user name the same as on my electrical license, JW Electric. Use it for everything simply because I can remember it as I have been using that handle for more than 40 years.

    PS watching that post count going up
