Default Is this rare?

I went to shoot my bow for the 3rd time today and shot an arrow inside another arrow from 20 yards. Obviously I was trying to get a good group, but never expected this. Since I am new, I do not know if this is just something that happens once in a while, or if this is as rare as a hole-in-one in golf. I have attached some pics. Let me know.

The more you shoot groups, the more that is going to happen as you improve. Try shooting at a 5 spot target. It will cost you less money in the long run.

It doesn't happen all that often. It's fun when it does until you done it a few times then it just gets expensive.

Don't listen to them CTHunter. Keep shooting groups its only money you can make more.







Message to self "Buy stock in arrows"





Nice Job there but I will have to agree you need to start shooting some 5-spots. The first couple of times its cool from then on its just like tossing money out the window.

I did it twice in one day on two different occations. Get a five spot target. Arrows cost to much. Unless you can afford it!
