- Regarding Take-Down Bows...
Lancaster Archery (http://www.lancasterachery.com)sells take-down recurves by AIM for very low prices. The bows shoot well.
After having been shooting my new longbow for a few months now, I am finding that I enjoy shooting it more than my recurve (but not more than my crossbow), and I feel more period than while shooting my recurve. Strangely, though, the more I shoot the longbow, the better I can shoot the recurve. Back when I shot my recurve more often, I was never very good with it, but now with the longbow around, I have seen improvement.
Plans have changed. Erin and I will not be able to make it to Pennsic this year after all. Real life comes before SCA, though, and there is always next year to save up for.
