Default Anyone ever do this?

Anyone ever dry fire their bow. I have yet to do it and hope I never do. I know a few people that were to involved in aiming at a 3-d target. They forgot to nock an arrow.

Yup did it once while using a customers release in the Archery Shop I owned and operated...the knucklehead had lightened the trigger and never tested it or told me about it........CRACK!!!!!!...sounded like a 22 magum going off!!! I nearly killed the idiot and I reamed him a new butt hole!!! I totally dissembled my bow and inspected every inch and componant....the bow was fine thankfully but I'll never forget the sound as I heard it many times in our tuning booth when customers drew their bows with no arrow on the string...a huge NO-NO!!! I yelled at more guys for that crap than anything else...Ah the fond memories of a former Bow Shop owner LOL!!!! Wi-Doe

Welcome to the site. Good to have a bow shop guru here!

I like the name...catchy.

I can't tell from the pic (it's too small). Looks like it could be pork rinds or chitlins (sp?) Am I right?

We have an Ooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllddd Ben Pearson compund bow I dry fired a few times. Sounded like a bomb went off when I did. I thought, "You gotta be kiddin me! The deer must have died of fright because you sure couldn't shoot one with this bow!"

Of course we got the bow, and I dry fired it a few times, beforeI had the benefit of the education I've received here yet.

O that's it mister...the gloves are off!!! I'm not too ashamed to tell everyone that he's talking about me...but what he left out is that I whooped him on the course.
