Thought I'd show a few pictures that some might be interested in. For a lot of people in this day and time, gun safes seem to be the best way to store guns. This leaves the old gun cabinets out of use and inexpensive to buy. When I moved into my present home a couple years ago the previous owners left an old wood gun cabinet and I also have a beautiful gun cabinet that my brother made. With these I came up with ideas an how to put these cabinets to use. One I have for broadhead arrow storage and the other for wood arrow making and string making. Gordon

If you have a bow that shoots 163 fps and a bow that shoots 167 fps and both with a 550 grain arrow, what does the difference mean at fifty yards? I have always wondered how much advantage a faster bow makes on longer range targets.

On another site, gasket lacquer was brought up. Most hate it but I'm in the camp that loves it. I thought I would cover a couple of mistakes people make using it. The reason I like it so well is the ease of pulling arrows out of 3D targets. Also I like the low odor and how quickly it dries.

Hello everyone. I thought I would post a picture of an archery target that I made a couple of years ago and had to replace a few days ago. It is made of compressed bales from Tractor Supply. I bought four new bales (around $75) to replace the ones that had worn out. The old bales lasted a couple of years with me shooting almost every day, I did rotate the bales once. The bales make it very easy to pull the arrows. The only problem I have is that there is a hole in the center of the bales that must be filled. I have tried spray foam but I have better luck with rubber mat material rolled up and placed in the center. I also attach a piece of the rubber mat to the back of the bales. Ratchet strap the bales together with two straps and have a treated lumber stand to hold the bales. Also I have a piece of sheet metal on the top to protect the bales from rain. I believe the alfalfa bales last the longest.
Simple archery target for around a hundred dollars.   content media
