I am just getting back into archery again after years of (rest). I am an old recure bow shooter as a snap shooter. I did ok dropped a few animals and then I knda went the way of the Modern Arms shooter. Now I am going to try archery again. Well I purchased a Parker all set up 60-70 draw, all silenced, dampened, toxonics sights, drop away rest and release. Well me and my great wisdom decided to go out back and shoot a few. Well I got everything set up and ready to go (mind you I was told "make sure you don't throttle the bow"). Yeah, yeah I got it. I am getting ready to set the windage with the 10 yard pin, drew it back, took sight and let go. Well, I felt a little tinging on my left forearm, looked down and nothing there, nothing hurt, well, I guess I am doing some thing right. I had to do some adjusting with the sight as I was all the way down to the bottom of the target. OK made the adjustment drew back. took sight and low and behold that hurt like the dickens. I put the bow down and checked the arm. Man-oh-Man what a colour. Well I went to my brother-in-laws archery shop and after showing them my arm and getting the laugh
and "I told you not to throttle the bow" speech I picked up and arm protecter. Went back out the next day and no more arm hits. I have shot the bow about 60 times so far and have not hit the arm yet, thank goodness. I just figured everyone would like a good laugh and I am sure said to themselves BEEN THERE DONE THAT.
Looks like a nice site to Glean some good information so I think I'll hang around for a while.
