  • Do you think beeman should give me free arrows? I was pulling one (Beeman hunters) out of my block and it had hit another arrow

    Do you think beeman should give me free arrows? I was pulling one (Beeman hunters) out of my block and it had hit another arrow which caused it to start to split. That is not all I also have carbon fibre in my hand from pulling it out because I had no idea that it was broken.

    Why do they owe you anything? We can't blame others for our own mistakes.

      Not at all. This is a risk you run when shooting groups.

          It's a poor craftsman who blames his tools.

              To loosely quote Larry the cable guy here on gun control. "blaming guns for gun violence is like blaming your pencil for misspelled words", much like blaming Beeman for this. Be appreciative of your Robin Hood, then learn from it and move on.

                I don't think Beeman owes you anything, unless they have guaranteed their arrows against splitting. But I have the feeling that if you complain to customer service, they will send you something to compensate for your injury.
                I once wrote a letter to Dutch Masters about a bad cigar I had gotten, and they sent me a complimentary box of fifty new cigars. Good customer relations are an important part of business. It made me feel small for complaining, however.

                  Crap like this is whats the matter with this country. People suing or wanting something free from manufactures for something they did. Why should they pay you for what you did? They didn't have anything to do with you braking your arrow.

                      pbshooter,
                      While I agree with what you are saying, I can also see that quality control is slipping in many categories of manufactured goods, even those imported from countries where labor costs are much cheaper than they are here at home. The customers have become the quality control inspectors by default. Just my two cents' worth.

                        There is an old saying that rule number one is to engage your brain before engaging your hands or mouth. I am very often guilty of breaking the mouth part of that rule myself. But when you have a weapon in your hands, you should be extra aware of the first part of that rule. You can always have the unexpected happen and can get hurt or hurt someone else.

                          LMBO.. you have got to be kidding right? But you may have a very good point to make. I missed a 220 class typical buck 2 years ago in a pouring down rain with my bow. My glasses fogged up,my release slipped on my wrist,the fletching got soaked I hit my arm and that darn buck ducked at the last millisecond. Somebody should be to blame.That would have easily been the new world record for a typical whitetail. Let me know what you find out. While you're at it find out who your mom's OB was, you could probably sue him for dropping you on your head while delivering you.LOL,,, how silly can you get.

                            Easy there Rick, some people just don't know any better. Just like some people don't know when scold a KID, and when to offer advice.

                              If you have the original package the arrows came in, look for the term "arrow proof". If it's there, you would have a legit claim.
