    Friend of mine emailed this article to me. Funny another friend of mine has been shooting 20ft in his apt. Lucky he only shoots at a target attached to his door and very LOW poundage....
    NYC man charged in bow-and-arrow mishap

    30 minutes ago

    A man celebrating his birthday with a bow and arrow in his apartment was charged with reckless endangerment after an errant shot shattered a window across the street, the district attorney's office said.

    Two other arrows hit scaffolding on another building in the affluent East Side neighborhood when Noel Luria, 39, was shooting from his apartment into a target block mounted on his windowsill, police said. No one was injured.

    "My intention was not to pick off somebody," he said. "My intentions were to have a good time. I'm turning 40. It's an elegant instrument."

    Luria was also charged with criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon. A crossbow, a compound bow and 49 arrows were confiscated from Luria's apartment, according to the police complaint.

    His attorney, Karen Hamberlin, declined to comment while she investigates the case.

    Yeah, what an idiot. I've shot around other buildings before but not quite like that. Other people were not around and I was not shooting blindly at a target without knowing what was behind it. What a moron.
