- May 11, 2010Some municipalities consider them weapons for carrying purposes. a gental in Canada couldnt take a takedown recurve, disassembled on the bus or train, and couldnt keep it at work, actually got in trouble because she had it once. if i remember right, they took the string so it would be rendered "safe"some places dont allow even shooting them in town limits, others do. but yes they are DEFINITELY weapons, the only "LIVE" weapon used in this game we playTerranceAtenveldt----- Original Message -----From: ShellieSent: Tuesday, May 11, 2010 10:15 AMSubject: Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: A little playful archery thing I came up withThey deffinately are weapons. I didn't know where the gun was back when I was in junior high so when no one was home I kept the bow and some arrows (hunting style) at hand so that I would be ready to shoot. I lived in a bad area that is why I still to this day sleep armed. Though not with anything that can fire but with my daggers and a short sword readily available.Shellie

Not sniping just pointing out that we should approach them as weapons, respectfully, not fearfully, and definitally not ignorantly.Ive seen too much "stupidy/ignorance" cause harm even with "just" a bow and arrow.sorry, getting off soap box nowTerranceAtenveldt----- Original Message -----From: Harry BillingsTo: SCA archerySent: Tuesday, May 11, 2010 9:53 AMSubject: RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: A little playful archery thing I came up with
