Modern Road Warriors And Their Weapons

This year I've done all my Christmas shopping while on the road. I think I might actually also be wrapping presents in the truck.

My favorite gift, I think, is going to be the bow and arrow I got for my oldest nephew. I told my brother I wanted to get him archery lessons, but then wound up seeing a cool bow and arrow at
Cabela’s (what a great store!) so I picked up that too.

When Ed and I hauled all the packages into the sleeper, I said to him, "What are we going to do about the bow and arrow?"

"What do you mean?" he said.

"Well, what if we get stopped by the DOT? Are they going to have a problem with it?"

"Nah, I don't think so. We'll just put it up in one of the cabinets.." he said.

"OK." I answered, figuring he knows better than I do.

All I could think of was getting stopped by a DOT officer and being asked, "Um, excuse me ma'am, but do you have any weapons in the truck?"

"Ummmm.....just a bow and arrow."

And I'd hope when he got done laughing at the image of a warrior out of the wild west, he'd reconsider giving me any kind of citation.

I mean, much of a threat can I be with a bow made for a ten year old and two crappy arrows??

If it is a bow suitable for a ten year old I don't think they will care. On the other hand, if you bought hunting bow with hunting arrows for your ten year old nephew I'd wrap it in a hurry!!! I hope the roads are better.
