My most scariest was when I was shooting a 3-d shoot with a black widow recurve with an magnesium riser. It was a hot muggy, humid day and as I drew back the bow slipped out of my grip and cold cocked me in the forehead, I dropped down to all fours and saw stars but the embarrasment hurt the most as some individuals still bring it to my attention to this day.
If any of you all bring this up, I'm going to deney it.[:-]

I had my string break right at my string loop once. I was shooting at 30 yards and right at the release the string snapped and left me with a nice scare on my wrist but the arrow just happened to hit dead center in the bullseye, it was my best shot of the night ha ha.

Imagine this, you've been shooting all day at your favorite proshop, probaly 300 shots, the bow is a 80# Bowtech Liberty. You notice your shots are falling off from fatigue. The owner asks to shoot it to compare against another bow and he gets it almost all the way back and CRACK!!!!

Axle sheared the bottom limb in half and the string almost cuts Lennys arm off. Now that ruins the day, your bow in piesces and the shop owner arm bleedin all over the place. I felt like crap. The worse part was Len had to teach hunter safety that night.

It just goes to show you, any and all mechanical devices will and do fail after prolonged use and exposer.
