Which one of these fits?
I've used them all. :shock: :lol:

It's funny to see how these threads end up sometimes. I'm going to refer to my crossbow as my "tool" from now on. 8)

I kind of like "implement” or perhaps "apparatus", but my favorite has to be "instrument"!

As I head into the forest with my "instrument" to pluck out that mournful, woeful tune of death to the unsuspecting whitetail deer that reside there in apparent peace.

But if I ever get attacked by a bear, an overly horney whitetail buck or a rabid opossum, I will take great comfort in the fact that my implement, tool or instrument will quickly and easily convert into a "weapon" that will help fend off the attack and help save my aging and wasting-away butt!

It is hard to believe the crossbow can be so many things to so many people. It is even more awesome than I first thought, especially since it shoots arrows. Makes me want to bolt right out and buy a new one.

I agree Robert! It is a very large part of why I fell in love with writing. The possibilities, patterns and creative opportunities are endless. Only the limitations of imagination restrict the playing field.

You guys are funny :D

Seriously though, referring to hunting arms as "weapons" just makes the anti's job easier.....look at the press today

Cooey 22 = "Weapon"

A cooey 22, a 12 ga pump and a 303 = "Cache"

A cooey 22, a 12 ga pump, a 303 and a pistol = "Arsenal"

Anything with a magazine = "Assault weapon"

3 bulk packs of cheap .22 shells from walmart = "Almost two thousand rounds of ammunition"

Anything with a scope="Sniper rifle"

and the list coes on :roll:

I defended my country with a "weapon", I certainly don't hunt with one.
If you can't set a good example, at least serve as a horrible warning.
