It was just any other day on an archery range at a Gander Mountain store. As the security camera rolled, this archer took some shots with a compound bow. Well, that is until it exploded with tremendous power. The shooter's glasses went flying before he found himself holding an unstrung bow.

While we're not sure what caused this epic compound bow fail, we do know that his glasses probably saved eyes in this case.
