New Guy on the Block
Just to let people know I'm around. A little history. Started shooting in 1972 and couldn't keep four arrows on a 4' target. This year makes 30 years I've been shooting compounds bows. Have never had one in a shop for work. The only thing I don't do is manufacture strings.
Been a staff shooter for 11 years now, with four different companies, presently with Martin Archery.
Presently shooting a SlayR, 27.5" draw, 55lbs doing 293+fps, IBO. Hunting setup is doing 280fps.
I'm 57, retired, and not near the shooter I used to be, but still shoot nearly every day. I don't shoot competitively anymore, but for fun. What I enjoy most is helping people with less knowledge than myself, and often learning something new in the process. It's that "pass it on" thing that keeps me going.
I work part-time at a Gander Mountain Store in Harisburg, Pa. in the archery dept. If your in the neighborhood stop and see me. I might not be there, as I only work a couple days a week.
