Re: Suspension of Certain Combat Arrows

[No, the fletching (as it is now used) wouldn't keep the end from coming 
all the way through.  There is a way to fix that, though.  Just allow 
the use of solid plastic vanes and make a 3-vaned bolt mandatory, since 
a 2-vaned bolt would still be able to flip sideways.]
