Not me.

But those arrows DO bounce. Stand 10 yards from a wall and fire into it.
The arrow will most likely bounce clear back to your feet.

Since we're now using molded synthetics (baldars, thistles), maybe we could
design arrowheads that can both deliver a solid hit and cut down on
bounceback by absorbing the forward momentum. Or do these goals negate one

Will a non-bouncy arrow hit too soft? Whaddya say, physics types?
