You're the one that claimed we were alone on the line.  Combat Archery isn't
shooting the IKCAC.  The IKCAC does EXTREMELY little to help you win a point
in the Archers only Battle.  Get your story straight.  I've been on the
field with a bow every time they've allowed archers on the field at Gulf
War.  In the Two wars I've been two I've got a hundred or so kills with my
bow.  I've been complimented on my tactics and shooting from archers across
the known world.  I've never shot an IKCAC.

You are right.  It is just you on the line when you shoot an IKCAC.  That
doesn't promote the teamworks or tactics required to win a war.  If archers
would stop shooting at cardboard cutouts and set ranges then we'd do better
on the warfield.  I've been told the IKCAC is a fairly fun shoot.  Don't
delude yourself into thinking that shooting a plywood more often will make
you better at running, drawing on the fly and killing knights.  It won't.

Every stick jock on the field knows that pell work isn't enough.  Most
archer's know that shooting at plywood isn't enough.  When are you going to
figure it out?
