    Some people just don't like competition I guess. We have a 3D range and I see guys using it but whenever we schedule a match, they never show up. And these are compound shooters. It's a gun club and...

    Wingspan is 73 1/2". I tried to expand more today without locking my elbow. Some good results some not so good. But I'm thinking in the long run it's better.

    Am I a complete weakling?

    So I'm shooting a 30# longbow. I have a 28" draw. Now I'm 6'2", 220lbs so not that slight. Am I the biggest wuss on the planet? If I shoot that bow with full extension of my bow arm, I cannot control...

    So those of you who shoot indoor 300, do you ever practice at this pace? Pic a shooting line and go from there. It certainly keeps you honest as far as not being able to get into a groove....

    Pic 1. It shows more of the bow which is what they're looking for. It's a beautiful bow too. Or option 4, take about 5 more pics and send them all and let the folks at Bushmen decide.
