    I was pretty proud of my (new to me) idea!!

    Keep those pesky brother in laws ,or in my case government armorers, for dry firing your bow when you are not around with a standard pistol lock. Never again should anyone hear the famed excuse “I didnt touch it bro, it just went bang” OR “I have no idea man i just came in and it was like that” protect your investment!! and its much more secure than zip ties. Mine came with my springfield XD but most pistols come with one… if not guns stores sell um pretty cheap.

    Good idea! I have a couple gun locks I’d give to someone if they’d want them!

    You can only do so much I guess. I am just hoping this will keep my bow safe while its sitting in the armory for 5 months.

    Why does everyone who looks at your bow want to pull it back (fingers) and make you as nervous as possible. I think it should be an unwritten rule when looking at another mans bow you never ever draw it back especially with fingers. Just common manners if you ask me. If you want to draw it back then just ask to shoot the damn thing. I would rather let you do that than dry fire my rig!
    To take an animal with a bow is better than taking it with debit card.

    I was in an archery shop near Madison, WI a few weeks ago and watched a guy pick up Hoyt Pro Comp Elite($$$$$$) and draw it back not once, not twice, not three times but four times with this fingers. It was like trying not to look at an accident scene. Not sure who he was trying to impress or what he was getting out of drawing that bow back with his fingers like that but I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_brick_wall}

    I think it’s a good idea as well. It will at least protect you from others wanting to draw your bow, but it can’t do much about you dry firing it yourself, which is what I did!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_embarassed} DUH!!
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    Why does everyone who looks at your bow want to pull it back (fingers) and make you as nervous as possible. …

    For the same reason when they pick up a pistol they don’t check to see if it is loaded, and then put their finger on the trigger; they are novices, untrained, uneducated, and have no business handling a weapon unsupervised.

    The problem is … Stuff Happens, and the owners is held responsible for not securing the weapon.

    Good idea on the  pistol locks. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Wow…I remember when we drew our bows and actually shot them with our fingers! I guess we were just lucky…

    Great idea.  I independently came up with the same thing about 3 months ago.  It works, it’s cheap.
