    Default Whats the strangest thing you have shot accidentally?

    Whats the strangest thing you have shot accidentally?

    I have a 20yard range in the basement. My accidental shot was when I pulled back on by bow and it shot off (bad release which now I have a new one). It went through an electric frying pan and a canning pot. I still have the arrow shoots fine.

    I had a complete pass through on the heating duct in my basement.

    The metal support pole in the middle of the basement also makes a really neat and loud bell sound when hit with target arrow.

    Humm lets see what else??

    I got a few hole in the dry wall. and arrows don't hold up well when they hit concrete walls. Oh and I almost.....I got a complete pass through on the back wall of my pole barn too.

    What can I say.....when it comes to a hinge release I was a slow learner.

    Nothing weird but I shoot in the basement also, main house to an addition through a doorway wide hole. Screwing arround with a recurve I hit left of the doorway and the arrow coming back FAST! Hit sideways () on the hot water tank then under my feet. You think you can move fast enough to avoid harm, but sometimes sheit happens too fast!
    And then there was the time the ramrod broke off down the barrell... and I figured a few grains under the nipple would push it out.....
    Still haven't found the brass jag and the wife has'nt asked where that comforter went.

    We had an evangelist preaching at our church one sunday, our family stopped by the church early that afternoon and found him practicing with his bow from the balcony in the auditorium. He didnt hit anything but the target but i thought it was worth mentioning. I guess, Thank the Lord he was a good shot.
    Apparently "i'm sorry" and "my bad" mean the same thing, except at a funeral.

    Do nail guns count? I got my old boss in the arse. we were back to back putting together a wall frame and I had one blow out (too close to the top of the 2x) and get him. Not deep thankfully. But we had fun with that for a long time.

    I made that mistake along time ago with my first recurve.
    I must of been maybe 10 or 11 years old, I know I wasn't old enough to deer hunt yet. Anyway I decided to hunt chickens.
    Well wouldn't you know it I hit the first one I shot at, the arrow stuck half way through that chicken and it didn't even seem to slow the chicken down a bit.
    I chased that chicken half the day trying to catch it, it finally hide so I gave up on it hoping it would die on it's own. Later that day while we were doing chores, it came walking out in the barn yard with the arrow still half way through it.
    Needless to say my Dad was less than impressed. But he left a BIG impression on my back side. I think it took almost a year before I saw that bow again.

    Bad release in my back yard, the garden hose was stretched across the lawn behind my target, I hit it perfectly. We still have a spout of water coming out when we turn on the hose.

    I'm guessing there is a subconscious reason behind a women's need to distroy garden hoses. My wife will go out of her way to run over the hose with the lawn mower. I pick it up and move it out of the way and still she finds a way to run it over. I probably got two rolls of duct tape wrapped around my garden hose trying to stop leaks.
