    B B Archery in Kansas City

    Anybody been there? What kind of selection do they have in arrows? I plan on heading there today and having them set up my new strings, new rest. Would like to give them my business and buy some CX Maxima from them while there. Do they have a range that I can walk back tune the bow on? Chrono? Any pictures of the place? Not much on the internet.

    B B Archery is a Great Shop. Has been around for many years. The guys working there and Earl the owner who's house it is attached too, are all very friendly and knowledgeable. They will take care of you just fine, never heard a bad thing about them.

    They have a nice selection of items on the shelves to pick from, and many arrows in stock to buy. NO, there in not a full size indoor range, just a small 10yrd one lane for testing equipment. Yes, there is a Chrono for speed checks.

    Earl the Owner knows his stuff and gives back to archery very much, I believe he has been active in NFAA for many years.

    Thanks. I have never had anyone "teach" me anything about bows. I have just gone with the 1000 questions on here and TexasBowhunter.com forum approach. Bought my first bow back in 2005 and watched the kid at a Texas Bass Pro struggle for an hour before I jumped behind the counter and did the work myself....mind you, that was my first bow!! So, I have always done my own work, but I have never had a need to do anything that involved a bow press, hence I am going to Earl. I need some hands on mentoring from some experienced folks that won't feel like they are wasting their time.

    Man, that is a nice pace. They even let me go behind the counter to get educated on installing strings! Who knew that you twist this, twist that to tune it up, or increase poundage!!! Man, they are fast, too! I ended up walking out with a bow with new strings, new QAD, peep installed, d-loop installed (all brought in with me)! Bought a dozen Maxima Hunter Blanks for less than I have seen advertised on the internet. They didn't charge me a dime for any of the labor or teaching they gave me. Simply amazing customer service and they didn't know me from spit on the ground. Keep it up, guys!

    Yes it's a great little bow shop. 10 yd range chrono. Lots of arrows. Guys that are really willing to help you out.

    This is an old post Jesse. Didn't see your picture until after I started reading. I can still remember when you showed up with that buck!

    What are the bow selections to test? I'm looking to head over there soon and I want to shoot a few different bows. Specifically...

    PSE - DNA
    Bowtech- Insanity, Destroyer, Experience

    Do they normally stock these?

    I do know they stock bowtechs, martins, and ryteras. I haven't been there in a while... but when I go to KC, I try to stop by and loaf around there. I learn something new every time.

    It was a great shop with plenty of inventory. Earl the owner died a couple of months ago after a long battle with cancer. I was told because of zoning that once he died the shop could no longer be located at his residence so I don't know a status about it. He had some great staff and some relative but I'm not sure they took it over and if so moved it.

    BB Archery is still up and running. Earl's son, Randy took over, lives there and has most of the same guys working there. I have been going there 24 of their 25 years in business.

    Personally if I was that close I would go see Mike at Carter's archery. You know. ... the one called " Crackers"
    If you are not living on the edge, you are simply taking up too much space!!

    There is a nice little outdoor range north of KC in Platte City just off of I29. Take the Platte City exit (Hwy 92) west to 4th avenue, turn right to Main Street then right. I think this turns into HH Highway. Follow this road past I29 to the east about 2-3 miles and the range is in a little wildlife area or something like that on the left. Nice targets there when I visited about 2-3 years ago. Bring your own spot targets to shoot at. Do a mapquest of Platte City then zoom in until 4th Avenue, main street and HH highway show up. The range is just around a 90 degree left turn on HH east of I29.
