      Klancey, I really don't want to start an argument with you but don't
      you think this is just a slightly silly response to all this?
      a. No one is saying you can't use an arrow rest on your bow... no one!
      b. If you want to wear a glove or some other sort of hand protection
      then do so. Who has said you can't?
      c. If your arrows are such that you fear getting feathers poked into
      your skin then you need better or different arrows... period.

      If an SCA archer wants to participate in "period" archery then there
      are certain equipment standards to adhere to. The leaders of SCA
      archery have determined those standards. If you don't like them you
      don't have to follow them, you just can't register in the period class
      if you choose not to follow those standards.

      This all seems pretty straightforward to me. I really don't see why so
      many people are getting their tights in a bunch over it.
