Re: Running...I suck at it...

I really like the Vibrams, but I know that the Army won't let you guys PT test in them, and a lot of Commander's won't allow them for unit PT either, so that's one thing to keep in mind. :shrug:

Re: Bow Hunting

Nice! I've only gun hunted in the past. I'm from south Louisiana, where the deer are small and scarce, so if you wanted to bag one, your best bet was with a gun. I'm in Missouri now, though, and...
