    ... Thanks, that makes sense. It is also the way I shoot. The pressure of the drawn bow holds the bow in the web between thumb and fingers. No problem.

      Thanks, that makes sense. It is also the way I shoot. The pressure of the
      drawn bow holds the bow in the web between thumb and fingers. No
      problem. Close your hand enough to hold the bow after the arrow clears.
