    A recurve shooter borrowed one of my detectors for a "lost" arrow.
    Shaft within a shaft.
    Yeah ,it was a heavy one. It and others built like it packed a wallop.

    In the cross-bow world I've dipped a toe in ,weight through inserts and heavy shafts turn out some needless to say heavy arrows.
    Biggest game sees their use.

    Putting a heavy slow arrow into just a 3" target @ 20 yds. @ a 80 - 90% rate would be the start to even thinking about speed shooting. But hell I admit (again) I'm probably way behind today's shooting mentality. I haven't shot a local, state, national or world class tournament since 93'. I'd like to see or learn why speed is better and I truly mean this.

    If corrections in form/execution greatly show up with speed....then it seems to me shooting a fast arrow you will learn faster!!!!
    I'm not going to jump on the speed way of thinking. I will try various arrows, and different releases. If after a while I can finger shoot more accurately then with a release... well.. I will also try different rests, as I have them all except a fall away. I tried one didn't like it.

    When I hunted, used an old bow, shot with fingers and used uncut aluminum arrows I never had a miss. Of course I would get as close as possible. I'am now stepping in to the 21st century and will see what the new technology will do for me.

    I've always been much more concerned with the arrow arriving at the
    exact spot I want it to..how fast it got there was much less of a concern.

    Had a couple of archery sensei's when I was much younger. Fellow by
    the name of Shig Honda got me dialed in with my first compound bow
    (a Hoyt Rambo). Then, a few years later when I switched over to
    traditional archery I ran into Duke Savora (old style broadhead maker)
    and he taught me some of the techniques he had learned while he
    was in Japan in his youth.

    Both of 'em were real characters, but demanding when it came to
    flingin' arrows. Both gone now, but I've done my best to pass on
    what they taught me to younger shooters.

    Used to shop at Northwest Archery back when it was in Normandy
    Park, WA. Stopped by one day and Glenn St. Charles and his son
    Jay helped me build a Northwestern Yew longbow. That was a real
    honor, and had both of them sign the bow before I left the shop
    that day. Still have that bow, and every year I pull it out and give
    it another couple coats of Hoppe's. It's got a bit of handshock,
    but that is only due to my lousy tillering..

    Mike.... I can't preach this mentally enough because once you know how to do THAT eventually ("exact spot")... then speed can be entertained. But I'm way behind the times now.

    Enjoy best with good headphones or good speakers/subwoofer.

    The Antonov an-225


    Interesting facts, the 225 has a wingspan of 290 feet! its length is 276 feet! its cargo capacity is 250 tons! fully loaded its overall weight is somewhere around 1.4 Million pounds!.
    each of its 6 engines produce 51,590 pounds of thrust for a total of 309,540 pounds of thrust!

    OK one more video, my favorite of it.

    This reminds me of going to Mo-Kan drag races in the eighties. The big finale was a couple of jet engine powered drag cars. Basically frames with a jet engine stuck on. You could stand about fifteen feet away behind a chain link fence next to these things as they staged,which is where my nephew and I stood,of course. The sound went through your chest and felt like you were getting chain sawed inside out.
    Car alarms were going off behind us. Awesome sound and fury.

    It has been reported that the Oregon Viking can't keep his size 15 foot atta the throttle! Small town, been here since 1969. Wifey says ... you get a ticket ... then a bunch of stuff I can't post!

    I will post a power braked smokey burnout as soon as I learn to use the timer/video of my camera.

    2.25 exhaust and restrictive Y pipe gone. I will keep the cat but it will be sitting on a shelf in the garage, smog removed.
    A few minor TBI enhancements, mainly to fix the restrictions.
