    And so I thought "why not place it on a stump and blast it with a blunt bolt?", so I did exactly that.

    The blunt bolt had no trouble piercing both sides. I really wish the audio were a little clearer so you could hear the hiss of the approaching bolt! Fun stuff! Cool

    The spin is a nice touch. How far away were you? Good shot, now do it 3 more times!  Wink
