dart ricochet

Unread postAuthor: ThegunGuy » Sat Oct 31, 2009 4:17 pm

Gosh just had a weird ricochet, I was throwing a dart at a arrow target and it bounced off of it. My intention of using the field point target was to prevent ricochets, but it didn't work out so well. Who knew that a steel spike dart would bounce off of a oak board with less energy that a canvas and polyester fill target.

You just gotta throw it hard enough... Throw anything hard enough and it'll stick.
