Has anyone ever had a bow blow up from missfiring. Happened to my step-dad once he was pulling 90 pds and his arrow came unocked unknowingly when he let go the whole thing just blew up.

GONE HUNTIN'!

I've heard of bows shattering, or having a catastrophic break when dry fired, but never one blowing up? Was he using dynamite as limbs....:)

Friend was 'test drawing' a new Bowtech last year without the 'No-Fire' release & let it slip..
A few hundred later, he owned a new bow with a newer set of limbs..
My shop has an 'test' release that is a release wrist strap attached to a solid aluminum rod with a back cut groove for the string to catch in. There is no chance of an 'accident' release.... I think TRU-FIRE makes it..
