- Methinks MS tech. As is their norm, the answer is technically correct,
obscurely phrased, and practically useless for the actual question. Of
course, I could be an infiltrator for Mac. . .

Barak has a burning desire to host a question based game show....

The correct phrasing of this question is, "How would a longbow
be stowed by a traveler in period ..." since I doubt that an Italian
or Spanish arbalester would use his crossbow as a walking stick, nor
would most Central Asiatic archers, since their bows would be in the
bowcase secured either to their waist or their horse's saddle.
