      not necessarily so ... in what particular culture, what time period, whose law
      code .. ???

      alway remember the SCA covers a wide scope of cultures and time periods (i do
      so miss my pscho-aztec friend of years past .... g). in many of these
      cultures/times the bow is iirrelevent, in many it is predominant. as a general
      rule, in the SCA, a blanket statement is always a dangerous thing .. as it
      tends to catch fire so easily (g).

      for many of us, in our primary cultural affiliations, archery is a novelty or
      an irrelevance (keltoi for one .. spear was much more a primary) ... in my
      case, luckily i have a additional eastern bent that brings it back into the
      primary fold (things scyhtian, mongol, ...) ... by my nature, i do so love
      hybridization in all things.

      anyone got any plans / designs for eastern bow / arrow cases ... got some ideas
      for a belt rig that moves to the harley's saddle bag mounts for secure
      transport and open for refinements ... i ask you what could be more "mongol"
      than that idea (g)
