      I beg to differ as ALL thrown weapons are "LIVE" also.

      Some 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 play

      They 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.

      in some areas they are considered weapons, and they are.  they are used in a sport same as rifles and shotguns and need to be given similar respect.  some people hear sporting equipement and think of foot balls, soccer balls, nothing real dangerous, but our sport CAN BE.  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 now

      also bow and arrows are sporting equipment not weapons.
