Re: Are we fair dinkum???

Consitent form to me is key. I love archery but I love bowhunting more. To me it all comes down to being able to put that one arrow, when I need it, where I need it. I spend most Sundays down at the range (if not out bush) - as soon as I get tired, mentally or physically, I can it for the day. "Flin...

Re: Blade Runner knives at Anaconda

Never heard of these knives. Does it have the type of steel it is made of on the packaging? Even if it reasonable steel if it hasn't been heat treated correctly it could still be a p.o.s.
