Re: AND I THOUGHT PA COULD MESS THINGS UP - FROM OUTDOOR NEWS
Bings so very true and the irony, many of these small "mom & pop" shops made the industry what it is today. But rest assured, the bow mfg.s do not give a rats asz about anyone but themselves.
Eventually, like many other industry's today, all the archry products will be made under one name using only the label of the original mfg.
Sooner or later compounds, like recurves and the long bow, will be sought after only by the enthusiast while leaving most archers buying cross bows.
I do not see in the future, crossbows being purchased in multiples and hanging on the wall like guns. So sooner then later, I'm thinking, the bow mfg.s will see the same fate as the mom & pop shops.
Serves em right.
