  3. I could use a lot of colorful words to explain how wrong this was handled, after all I do work around a bunch of truckers. I know a number of nurses that run all night as well. To me, this "talk" is coming from someone who has no idea what you go through at work. As elasitgirl said, shame on them for approaching it in this fashion. On the bright side, you are receiving a gift soon and may need targets for practice. Just sayin'. Keep your chin up, my friend. Those people would collapse from exhaustion if they walked a mile in your shoes. Sent by Captain's orders via raven

  6. Hey all! Just tested the bow. Sorry I don't have any video, everyone I hang out with works "normal" hours. This is the penetration from 20 yards, though. Also, when shooting, don't do what I did and forget your arm guard: Anyone else have projects in the works? I'd love to see them!! I don't care if they are knives, swords, nerf guns, whatever!

  12. Just a bowstring in process: Working 12 and 13 hour shifts are slowing the process a little. I have Sunday and Monday off, so I should be able to finish it all then. Until then, baby steps! Sent by Captain's orders via raven

  19. My stepdad just gave me a book on how to make bows out of wood, perhaps I shall join you in that endeavor. Sent by Captain's orders via raven

  21. Finally got word, I got the promotion!!! Sent by Captain's orders via raven
  22. It should come out between 30 and 35# draw weight, good for practice!Sent by Captain's orders via raven
  23. There are a ton of how to's on youtube for this, look up a channel called "backyardbowyer". Nick is the guy I follow for building these. As far as if you can use it, here is a video of another one I built and my friend shooting it. The second video shows penetration. https://vimeo.com/118281462https://vimeo.com/118281587 As far as step by step instructions, I'd encourage people to put them here if they are working on projects. The next bow I build I promise to take more pictures and do what I can to explain the process, and I still think the channel I mentioned above will be a better immediate
  24. Here's a start: I started with this: Then it became this: (My wife is 5' 7" for reference) Now it's changing colors! I'll post more pics as I finish it up! Sent by Captain's orders via raven
  25. Hey all! I wanted to let you know I started a thread in the pub section to show off project weapons or for people who have questions about building their own. It is here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/60130-nf-armory/ Cheers! Sent by Captain's orders via raven
