    Where Are The Pin Shooters?

    Was standing on the indoor shooting line last night and realized...I'm the ONLY pin shooter here? It reminded me of a Jimmy Buffet song...'I got recurves to the left...scopes to the right...and I'm the only pin shooter in town!'

    Do you really want us FSers to come back DOWN and kick that butt

    But down my way it is the other way around....more pins then FS equipment. I think at states last year the line I shot there were 4-6 FS shooters everyone else shot BHFS.

    Pins-only, for me. We have a lot of BHFS, including seniors up our way. Many alternate various weeks between BHFS and FS with target and bowhunting setups.

    If we want the Average Joe to get involved in Field (Bowhunters and 3D shooters), then BHFS is the way to get them in.

    It's been pins all along for me. I finally found a deal on a target sight last night that my cheap butt is willing to pay for so at least for indoor I'll be losing the pins. Heck in PA pins is more competitive then freestyle . . .

    I'll still probably stay with pins for field. I love shooting my Switchback for field and I was a regular animal slayer with it this year after shooting it for field all summer.

    LOL - You think you're lonely? Try being the only barebow recurve shooter on line with 15 FS compound shooters. (smiley face goes here)

    A good friend of mine...who I have shot with for 17+ years...shoots Bowhunter! Not BHFS...not BHFSL...straight Bowhunter. And yes, he is quite lonely too.

    I shoot my hunting rig. The only change is to lower the weight and go to heavier arrows to make the speed requirements.

    Pin shooters are vastly out-numbered by FS'ers around here.

    Yeah, he keeps saying that...but the force is strong in M4L...and abanding the scope for pins may be seen as a trip to the 'dark side'.

    I'll probably stay pins for field . . but indoor . . . I've been shooting FS (Unlimited here in PA) even with my BHFS setup. I shoot much better not holding off. So I may as well get s "real" target sight and do it right.

    I received a copy of the agenda items for the upcoming meeting in vegas and a lot has to do with eliminating styles or condensing them. If you guys want to continue to shoot BHFS you may want to take an interest in the agenda item that wants to allow up to 7 pins. At the rate they are increasing allowable stuff for your style it would not surprise me that in the near future they would try to eliminate the BHFS division and make you guys shoot in the FS division. Just a thought to ponder. If you check out what was allowed in the early 90'S til now you will see what I mean. Looks to me that you guys are shooting yourselves in the foot (Finally hit something)

    I want it to go back to a lot of the older regs, 125 grain minimum points, NO rear stabilizer BUT an STS type is allowed but it must be made to stop the string. Keep 5 fixed pins only . I still would like to keep my verifier lens since without it I would have to switch over to FS since I wouldnt be able to see my pins without one. No need for 7 pins . Heck I get confused sometimes with five pins and use the wrong pin, no need to add 40% more pins to confuse me even more
