Christmas gift that kills

When I was in high school I was quite proficient with one of these. She's not a bad shot either, as my brother taught her at summer camp.  I have always wanted to get one in my hands again and really make myself an expert. Well, thanks to her, I've got this beauty. It's a traditional one-piece recurve bow made of walnut and maple.  The limbs are covered with clear fiberglass (not traditional, but awesome).



Now we have more than one fearsome predator in the household.
