    I'm 62 and I enjoy the outdoors...The only way I have to get around is my bicycles and one have a homemade trailer because I went and ask for counseling and could not handle bill we also ask the state to help and now we have a payee me I'm on S.S. My gets SSD and we only get $60.00 a week to buy personal need and cleaning & washing supplies and paying for a dryer...
    Because I went for help I am now BLACK BALL from ALL FIRE ARMS...
    OK now!!! I'm asking you BOW HUNTER to look around for that old BOW you have laying around clean it up and in see if it's in good shape, I'm looking for a COMPOUND BOW that is no more then 10 yrs old or newer...My draw length is 28 inches, RH Bow hopefully it will come with sights on it....It would be nice if it have couple of arrow to but that might be ask to much....But maybe some out may have some arrow...
    Yes I was given a BOW by a friend that found it a yard sale it is a Darton SL-50 after doing a little research I found that it's over 30 yrs old...As for being safe I don't know for sure being made in the 1980 I question that...I will appreciate it and thank you all know...

    I am confused as to why he is black balled from all firearms, because he got help? Also a large amount of spelling and grammatical errors which is indicative of a scam.

    Smells fishy! Like you said, his English is terrible, but somehow he knows how to use the caps lock for specific words and phrases. Makes me wonder if it was sent from abroad. Definitely not kosher!

    It does seem a little fishy but, I can tell you from experience, you can't always judge by grammatical and spelling errors. You should see some of the emails that fly around work. They can be pretty bad.

    Probably is a scam but, we shall see.

    You know it seems legit from some angles, it's not like he is asking for money or top of the line bows. But maybe if he is a scammer he works off of selling low end bows and making a few bucks here and there. Im leaning more toward this not being a scam.

    Still confused about being black balled from firearms. Definitely true about grammar and spelling, can't totally judge a person by that. Ive become worse and worse at spelling due to auto correct, spell check, and not reading books like I used to.

    Wow, If only would have read this a few days ago. I would have thought it was a scam then too.

    Stop trying to prey upon the kindness of others.

    ...and I am that guy who almost gave in, geesh! It does seem a little odd that he has not posted a rebuttal to these numerous comments. Glad I slept on it before sending him my old hoyt Vtec.

    As long as the strings aren't frayed and the cams don't wobble, I'm sure it's safe. Take it to your local archery shop. Explain your situation and ask them if they will look at the Darton and tell you if they believe it's safe. With only three posts on here, I don't think you should be asking anyone for a free bow.

    Many of us remember the poor kid who just needed arrows, then he needed some camo because it got all ripped up. I'm not going to mention names, but I think this is the wrong way to go about trying to get free stuff.
