I bought my bow and arrow set from Charlies. £36 seems a good buy however they had run out of arrows and I’ll need them. They are getting some in next week and when I go I’ll get a target then as well. I’ll try the bow out and let you know how it goes. First impressions though is that it is very well made and seems to fit nice in the hand. There is also a sleeve, which I wish I had last time I tried, and a sight which is good because I can’t seem to fit the one from the rifle. I am very happy with it and look forward to giving it a go.
On my visit to NR we discussed bows, he has a few, and he provided me with an archery book which I am starting to read. Thanks NR.
Whilst I am on about the bows and arrows I’ve hit some issues with the bow and arrow weekend. When I originally thought can’t do it because they don’t have any good backstops. Essential for amateurs. Plus, it seems that insurance may be necessary. They are fine with me going there but not an unknown group. Seems that everyone is paranoid about being sued. I have got a couple more to try and I’ll try them over the weekend. With groups though they may want some payment so I’m actually thinking at this point it may be worth looking at booking a session at an archery club instead. I’m going to check that as well and see how it goes. Keep you posted.
