Default Turn around and someone handling your bow

I saw this on another site and it got me to thinking. It has happened to me on an occassion. You are somewhere shooting. You put your bow to the side. Start talking to someone with your back turned. Then you turn around and someone is standing there holding your setup looking it over.

Ever happened to you?

What would you do?

Yea I believe I am with Gator eye on this one. I know there are cheaters out there but I like to think they are not. So someone looking at my bow does not worry me.

I wouldn't want any one messing with my bow. They probably shoot better that I do.

I've had this happy to me a few times over the years and it usually starts out with "Whoa, What arre you doing with my bow?" and I say it with a normal voice,maybe just a touch of annoyance in it. Their reply and how it is given from there determines then what happens next. If they're apologetic and were just being inquisitive, then cool when can talk and become friends. If they get on their muscle about it and a little sassy....Cool again...we can also go from there. Don't matter much either way.

I see it happen all the time....heck I do it to guys all the time. BUT the key is it's always someone that I know. If I know you then I don't have a problem with it. If I don't know you.....don't touch

People shouldn't touch another man's woman, money or bow! Mess with one of these and you might get your A$% kicked!

I would never touch another persons bow unless I got permission. I don't have that problem. When you have a crappy looking bow and shoot like crap, other archers have no interest in your bow.
