Yes, but very few people know the correct terminology for the various parts of crossbows and the related equipment, so I generally use layman's terms in forums like this instead. :D: In the archery forums, you'd get a much different post...

Re: Instant Karma

Fair enough. That information as I heard it came from someone who participates in the events. And I did forget to mention that they do, if using real arrows, make them less than dangerous as long as you play safely. The question is which events... :D: The club I belong to has pretty strict rules. M...

Pop Warner?

Okay, so hubby surprised me with a weekend getaway to WDW...but it's for the first weekend of Pop Warner. :eek: We're booked at Coronado Springs rather than one of the values, and we'll have parkhoppers. Do you think we'll be able to avoid most of the cheerleading chaos? CMs, how bad are they, reall...

Re: Instant Karma

One thing about the medieval weapons, I have heard from several people now that police are much afraid of those weapons at events where they have mock wars with them. The reason? An arrow goes through kevlar, while there is a good chance that chainmail and a hard knight's suit stand a very good cha...

Re: Instant Karma

And I have to say, the time it would take to get a crossbow ready, pull it out and all that, that kid should have had time to hide or something. Loading a crossbow quickly takes practice. So does being accurate with one (although not as much practice as shooting a longbow accurately takes). It take...

Re: disney break ca vehicle codes

If he did actually report Disney to anyone, I'm sure they looked at who he was reporting, did a little of the ole :rolleyes: and promptly filed his report into the green bin, or flushed it, the latter is probably more appropriate. IMO, if the report had the same spelling and grammar as his posts he...

Re: Visiting with 1st timers.

Question for the CMs out there...how's touringplans.com for that kind of stuff? Specifically crowd levels and the ways to avoid them... :D: I like the site, but I've never been able to tell how accurate it is.
