      I agree with Carolus.

      We only authorize separately for handbow and crossbow. While the individual handbows have differences, the basic form is the same, no reason to authorize by weight. We also wouldn't want to put that much in the RMs bag (you're safe to use a 35lb bow, but not a 40lb bow - seems like a lot of subjective judgement there!).

      I had the same thought. And what is the breaking point, I have 33,
      37,39, and 44 # bows. As a former kingdom archery officer, this just
      looks like a way to waste marshals' time and discourage archers.

It just generates extra paperwork. Personally I don't really see the need for authorizations but then I shoot on mundane compound lines as well and there is no authorizations or demonstration of skill required so I guess I 'm just used to it that way.
