New string and thorough check by an archery pro shop is the route I'd take.

Good topic

After looking at the prices of bows today I have been thinking of getting my old compound bow out storage and start shooting again. I it bought around 1988 but it has been stored away for 20 years. It was just a low price Proline 70 lb bow but it worked well and I won several shooting contests with it.

Belong the string and cables would the limbs be OK having been strung that long?

In gun-free zones, an ambulance has to take the victims to the hospital. When citizens are armed, it’s the perpetrator being carried off to the hospital.
