I should have added -- the belt quiver has a decided advantage for
this style anyway as you knock the arrows on the underside of the
bow, not the top. No I'm not that fast, but my Grandfather could do
eleven in 30 seconds -- 'apple small' on target too -- imagine
getting a 55 in the speed round!
- Amen to that. A lot of people in this country gripe about the military
budget, and put down soldiers and sailors, but one thing history has
shown again and again is: when we need 'em, we *need* 'em, and then the
complainers are sure glad to have them. My hat is off to the USMC, one
of the finest bodies of fighting men the world has seen. Their defense
of Wake Island ranks with that of Thermopylae.
