      I'm opposed to the crimp-on so-called safety tips often found on
      kids arrows, especially if shot indoors. The arrow can still kill
      someone if they hit someone in the right spot, but provide more of a
      safety hazard by being much more likely to bounce off the target and
      hit someone/thing.

      Just my 2 cents, and not condemning anything.
