Default Bow quest continues

I had picked up the spiffy PSE bow package from my buddy and I liked it and shot it pretty well (for a beginner). I was talking to my son and he decided that he wanted it as he'd like to begin the sport so I was without again. As I never intend to hunt and since I've learned a bit about bows I went in another direction. I wanted a longer bow more setup for target shooting than hunting. A longer bow provides the option to shoot with your fingers instead of relying on a release also.

This one arrived the other day that I got from a moderator on the big archery forum. It's a Martin RazorX, 45-60#, 30.5 draw (fits perfectly), and I got a really good deal on the bare bow with a hard carry case. Hope to shoot this one some this weekend while I'm up in SC. One of my first projects at my new abode will be to build a backstop in the backyard so I can shoot safely there...

Man, the science of those things have come a LONG ways since I was shooting an old recurve in the backyard at two bails of hay.

That's a nice looking bow you got there NGIB. Are you planning on doing some hunting with your new found skills, or just the next challenge to keep the mind and body going?

No sir, no hunting for me as I get all the meat I need from Kroger. This is just something else I can use to punch holes in paper...

Kind of how I feel about it as well. Good tool should you ever need to use it though. Good on you for stretching your limits.

Ammo is expensive, arrows are reusable.

(The ones I don't lose or destroy anyway)

I find target shooting a bow very calming and almost spiritual.

As Kwi Chang said, "Be the arrow"
