doglover: ladyfortuna: doglover: RexTalionis: Crossbows are great weapons - easy to load, easy to fire, no training or upper body strength necessary, silent and it can go through armor.

Silent? Except for the godawful crack and subequent clicking of the winch.

Also aren't they a lot slower to load than just drawing and nocking another arrow?

Depends on how hard it is to use a compound bow. I've never messed with one, but it looks complicated. However, they might be really fast to cock.

But in practice, longbows have about 20 shots per minute and crossbows of that era about 10.



Depends... if your compound is set up for finger draw and not a mechanical release, its almost the same as the long bow... but it's a lot more accurate due to sighting systems that can be employed on the compound. I can get off about 6 shots a minute with extreme accuracy and 15 ish per minute if I don't care if it hits the bale or the paper. There are people at my home range that can hit that 20 per minute with reasonable accuracy, but I just don't have the time to put in to get much better than I currently am.

I am comfortable and can group close enough to break knocks off my arrows out to 100 yards with my compound bows shooting fingers or with a release. With a recurve or long bow that group expands out to the size of a dinner plate at around 70 yards.

But then I shoot a fair amount ( 6 to 10 times a month )

With string silencers on a recurve the target is going to have a shaft or two in it before the sound of the release passes the target, and past 30 yards or so you have to have a white tail's hearing to hear the release of one of my hunting recurve bows Compounds are a little noisier than stick bows since the cams activating have noise and the limb and string shock are harder to dampen due to the energy released and materials of the Compound Bow... Crossbows though are seriously noisy by comparison.

I live in Korea. Everyday I fantasize about beating the crap out of the idiot drivers who don't look before running a red light or think its a good idea to change lanes without a blinker when there is a car in the lane right beside them. But it's Korea. Even if I got jumped by some Koreans for no reason it would be me that gets taken to jail.

I got cut off by some chick with a Bush/Cheney sticker on her car. It was sheer coincidence that a friend had just given me a roll of toilet paper with Bush's face on it. It took an extreme act of will not to pull up next to her and huck it through her window.

Skyd1v: No, but a certain large, extremely LOUD bird has made a point of planting himself in our backyard tree and screeching continuously every morning starting at 5 am. Last Saturday morning I snapped, grabbed my crossbow, and headed out for a little retribution.

Snuck around the side of the garage and found my victim about 15 feet up in a tree, squalling his lil lungs out. Took careful aim and popped that sumbeyotch right in the lower chest.

Perfect hit? Yes.
Piss him off? Oh,yeah.
Kill him? Not a chance.

Now the bastard has figured out which window is the bedroom and wakes us up every morning SCREAMING at the glass.

Protip: if you are going to use a crossbow on a annoying bird, make sure it doesn't say NERF anywhere on it.


I've never seen a bird that says NERF anywhere on it.

IIRC, reloading a crossbow is a move action, where no such thing is required for a normal bow. Which is why Rangers stick with longbows, and Wizards cast Haste.

This tard was tailgating me hard and roadraged himself over to my car at a red light. So he starts yelling at me through my window for being in front of him and I'm like, staring at the light waiting for it to change. It goes green and I open my door, hard, smacking his teeth on the window frame and knocking him down. I made a right turn and pulled into the village hall parking lot.

He followed.

It get's funnier from there. I know my village police pretty well and despite being a long-hair pot smoker they like me well enough. That guy ended up with 2 cops on top of him. Turns out he was DUI and off his meds and driving with a suspended license and had bench warrants for some domestic abuse thing and...

Reverend Monkeypants: Full on road ragers always have a list of issues


seriously. i have a temper, but i can't even begin to comprehend what's going through the head of the kind of person that would think geting out of his car to accost someone over a traffic slight is a reasonable thing to do.

it happened once to my dad when we were kids. he cut some guy off - he immediately realized what he did and gave the guy a wave. the guy sped past him (in the wrong lane) screaming and dad waved at him again. the guy still wasn't happy, got out of his car at the next red light and came back at us screaming. dad rolled down his window, started to apologize and then calmly informed him that he had forgotten to put his car in park which was no rolling into the intersection. car got hit, guy lucky he didn't.

why yes my dad is a bad ass - but probably should use his mirrors a little better

but it's probably for the best that I can't get medieval on the other drivers
 
2012-07-11 09:54:35 AM  
I drive the speed limit just to piss people off. Seriously, I do. I work as a car salesman, and when I'm driving the boss's cars, I make a point of not doing anything to scratch, ding, or dent them. I don't bother counting the number of people who've flipped me off, screamed at me, or threatened me and my family with downright medieval horrors for being in front of them.

The winner was this guy in a hatchback, driving with two kids, one in a car seat. I'm toodling along, doing the speed limit in the right lane, and this dude gets behind me and starts flashing his lights and honking his horn. I think that maybe there's something wrong with the car I'm driving, so I pull over in a fast food joint parking lot. He pulls in behind me and jumps out of his car screaming blue murder at me. Apparently, because I wasn't going fast enough, he wasn't able to get over to a street he wanted to, and rather than turn around somewhere, he feels the need to "correct" my driving.

I'm six feet tall, 275 pounds, and walk with a cane (broken back). I get out and he's got a pry bar in his hands. This guy was so mad he was literally shaking and spitting as he screamed. His kids were bawling, and I'm thinking this guy's totally lost it. Oh yeah, as part of my job I get to make the cash deposits for the company, which means that I have an unrestricted carry permit (NY), and a loaded 9mm in my waistband. That needed to said, because it tends to complicate things.

I could have probably been justified in using it, but his kids were there, he was clearly having an episode of some sorts, and I didn't want to shoot him just because he was an ***hole. Got super lucky, a cop was in the drive-through lane (I didn't see him until he came out from behind the building. As soon as the cop hit the lights, it was like the guy flipped a switch and was rational again. He was all "yes officer, no officer" as he flat-out lied to him, ascribing to me what he had been doing to me a few minutes before. Luck. The staff told him what was going on while he was at the window, I actually knew the cop (he shoots at my club), and this guy had a history with the department.

It ended with him getting busted for driving on a suspended license, expired registration/inspection/ lapsed insurance, and an outstanding warrant (failure to appear). He didn't get shot, I didn't have to go through the bureaucratic and legal nightmare, and one less idiot is on the road (at least for a while). The only blowback I experienced was a few nights later, someone smashed my driver's window and slashed two tires. It couldn't have been him, because he was still locked up, so it had to be one of his buddies or maybe even his girlfriend/wife. I'd link to the story, but it never even made the local paper.

Why, yes, yes I have.

About fifteen years ago I was heading south on I-57 past Champagne Illinois when I hit some road construction. Now there must have been at least two or three miles of road closed down to one lane, before we came up on the guys working and two or three miles of road after that was closed off.

I had slowed down to the speed limit in the construction zone when this asshole in a big dick truck, you know the ones that have been lifted and have huge ass tires, starts riding my ass, honking flashing his lights. It is a construction zone with active work going on I'm not about to go tearing through there.

Anyway we clear the construction zone and I get over, but this retard keeps on my ass and keeps blowing his horn and flashing his lights, so I speed up. He keeps on me, we hit about 100, and he kept with me the whole way. I slow down and just pull over, he also pulls over, jumps out with a knife in his hands.

Well that weekend I had been hunting with a buddy of mine and just happened to have my crossbow in the car, I grabbed it quickly unlocked the case, loaded it, hit the power windows and just as I aim it him he sticks his face in my window. It was a classic look on his face of "Oh shiat!", he went running for his truck and took off.

How so? I obey the law. The law says the speed limit is 45, I do 45 (maybe 5 over). I don't get tickets, I can control my vehicle better, and chuckholes don't hurt as much or tear up the car I'm in less. I don't make myself a hazard, I leave a lane open (when I can) for you to pass, what's the problem? I've probably driven over a half-million miles since I started driving for pay (mid-80's). Only three accidents that I can say were my fault, and I haven't had a moving violation since 1994. I believe I make the roads as safe as possible.
 
2012-07-11 10:56:32 AM  

redlegrick: How so?


You deliberately make other people angry, which makes them more dangerous. Doesn't matter if you're doing it within the law or not, deliberately pissing off a guy in control of a multi-ton vehicle isn't exactly an awesome thing to do.
