Last week at our archery league shoot, the owner of the shop offered us the opportunity to buy a "Block" target. He was replacing the ones at the shop and selling the used ones that were still in really good shape. My husband gave me the eyes that said.... "Please, honey, can I have one? Please." How could I resist?
As we were loading up the large target into the truck someone made the remark, "you are now the owner of a used butt". Wait. What? Not really knowing what they were talking about I simply said "thanks". I wasn't quite sure how to respond to that type of comment. I knew they were most definitely referring to the target, b/c umm.... doesn't everyone already own a "used butt". I'm not going to explore this any further than that.
Anyway, curiosity got the best of me and thanks to my handy dandy little google option on my computer, I now understand. Here is some interesting history regarding Archery Butts and here is a pic of my personal used butt:
