I was thinking about OBT's post regarding Darrin and what he did.

http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=378168

Just think about that for a second.

- THE guy grabs a bow he's never shot and
- slaps on some accessories
- and makes a few adjustments
- in someone else's shop
- with whatever is available

And gets into a trash taking shoot-out with an active pro team-shooter so there is some pressure there. And its all under the evil eye of the biggest trash-talking, big-mouth in archery (OBT):eek:

HE proceeds to shoot a frigging 300 with 26 little tiny tiny Xs...

AND HE IS LEFT-HANDED AND DOES IT WITH A RIGHT-HANDED BOW (SHOOTING IT BACKWARDS)!!

D-Man you are my hero dude. :eek:

REAL nice shooting.

This should finally show people that it's the shooter, not the bow. :hat:

Hey, it's only 17 1/2 yards in the barn ;)
18 if you touch metal :wink:

But then again, not many 18 metre ranges come with the "ambiance" that the barn carries :rolleyes:

Folks need to experience that place for themselves :D

Darrin should just be pleased OBT doesn't shoot Hoyt. That TEC riser would make that impossible! :)

That's the kind of thing that if you REALLY think about how hard that is, you start to feel bad about your own abilities..............:embara: :cry:

And you start to wonder, "How does that guy walk with those balls!!":eek:

Are you kidding. There will now be a rash of people shooting that model bow opposite of how it was designed to be shot. Most people will never learn that it's not the bow, it's the archer. This message couldn't be beaten home with a very large sledgehammer. The skulls around here are very, very thick. :wink:

Great shooting!

Great shooting, Darrin. And, yeah, another entry in the "It's the shooter, not the bow" logbook.

It's sad, but you're probably right.

DarrinM

Well I hate demonstrating my level of ignorance but I am REAL new to archery and had never heard of DarrinM, or anyone else for that matter, with the exception of Park Sung-hyun. But reading that story about him was inspiring to say the least.

My thought is since my name is Darren MacDougall, DarrenM, that perhaps, just maybe, hmmmm, London 2012 here I come, channeling the mastery of DarrinM. There must be some cosmic name connection thing I can tap into.
