you should be able to pick them up at a local sporting goods store. If they are the ones im thinking of they should be pretty universal.

any 99 cent stores nearby.i found an"o"ring kit had 100's in it for 99 cents.Go to a hardware store and ask for "o"rings bring 1 with you for size refernce.In NY barbed broadheads are illeagal check your regs before hunting with them.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

glad to see your reading your regs book.
