....since I joined back in 2005....I rekon I have "dumped" almost $8,000 into archery equipment....

and to think....prior to that date....hmmnnnn...I can't remember what I spent my "disposable" income on???


kinda like....life after kids...versus life before kids....

you guys with kids...remember what you and your wife used to do with the "time" before you had kids!!


hell....who cares...it's Friday + it's :darkbeer::30...

Since I joined AT I have spent a lot of money. The hard part is trying to explain the packages in the mail and ups deliveries. It used to be a lot easier for me when my cousin owned his archery shop and I worked for him. Got everything for cost and payment in arrows and odds and ends. Now I am back to spending full price or so on products I know the cost of. I really miss buying a new Hoyt for cost. And yeah its that time for me also.

My spending has gone through the roof. BEfore AT I owned three bows and a handful of accessories. Since AT I have owned about 25 bows, bought most of them on AT, and just about every arrow rest, arrow, and sight known to man. It is absurd really. I need to learn to be satisfied, and sometimes I am for a few weeks, then somebody goes and post some thread about some dandy new item and I have to try it. I need to get banned.

As some said earlier, and I quote:

"One of my biggest fear if I die, Is that my wife might sell my archery equipment for what I have told her I paid for it..."

I thought it would be cheaping than shooting my rifes being you resoot the same arrows. But then I got my bow and joined the local archery club and started looking at others set ups and now I just keep finding things I want or want to try:doh:
