    Wimpy shoulders, no upper body strength, arthritis: school me on crossbows

    Excaliber is a very accurate crossbow. I'm attachiing a couple pictures of the Vixen II packages, 150 LB. I would recommend this model for you. Each comes with scope and all accessories you need including a rope cocking aid. The only difference between the two is the scope...

    What to do with my $300

    Don't let the cash burn a hole in your pocket. Save it for a rainy day or until you have enough to buy a keeper. Second choice would be the LCP but even FMJ is still over priced and it is not meant to be a fun gun.

    easy cleaning handguns?

    5,000 rounds with no cleaning, really? If so you are due for a recoil spring replacement and probably a mainspring too. Hoppes Copper Solvent normally works well for cleaning barrels with lots of crud in them. I lubricate wit M-Pro 7.

    Ricochet - Sometimes it hurts.

    I would at least get an X-ray. Getting hit in the ankle where there is nothing but bone and tendon can be very painful and can take several months to heal. That is no flesh wound. You really don't want an infection. Keep an ice pad on it until you can see a doc.

    Remington Ammo, Baint & Switch

    I remember when candy bars were a nickle. Then the price went to a dime. Little by little, they got smaller for the same price (for a while). The same is true of dog food, detergent, cereal, potato chips, coffee and about everything else. Ammo is no different.

    Ammo Prices

    It is mostly supply and demand. Many who were shooting 200 rounds a week are shooting 100 rounds a month or less. The economy is still very weak. Gun and ammo sales are down. It also has to do with much more imported ammo on the shelves to meet demand at reasonable cost. You may now see...

    Swiss Army Knives

    I would pass on that model. The One hand Trekker comes with a free Classic knife. I like the Trekker because it has a Phillips head screw driver, a saw and a larger blade. The LED flashlights are all low lumen power. You can get a Stream light high power Led Flashlight at WalMart very...
