- To Whom It May Concern,
>I just now returned from Firespitter's archery web site where I noticed a
couple of swords for sale. It occurred to me that I haven't made any real
swords in five years since I have been so busy with my fencing
business. However, for a long time I have wanted to make a few accurate
reproductions of both the Conyers Falchion and the Thorpe
Falchion. Falchions have long been thought of as the archer's side
arm. Would any archers out there be interested in purchasing a
falchion? If so perhaps I could sell them from my crossbow site.

- Im temparly shooting a compound bow. Better than not shooting.
I did somthing as a gag I put a loop on my old recurve bow and tried it with a release works grate. this will not work on a long bow you may snap the bow due to the differant leanths.
I only shoot one of two ways either I shoot release I like or I shoot finger tabs. Not bad. My problem is I always mis place the snap tabs.
works for hunting or compitition for comptiton you will use two sets during a day of shooting.
I cant do gloves of any kind due to frost bite in both. Your not alone in hatred of glove. Hell I even tried the mitten the germans use that was torture

I also use a tab for the 3-finger draw. Here's one thing I have
learned: be careful about shoving your tab into a pouch or pocket when
you aren't using it, because it's easy for it to get bent up. This
doesn't really seem to matter for un-timed shooting, but it can really
slow you down on speed rounds.
