    Indeed

    Many have asked. Does a scope and lens really help? Heck yes it does!! I miss a lot more accurately now.

    Hope you have a good retirement, Gail. So what are your plans? Maybe you could go visit Tom Jennings down in Hondorus---Roatan to be specific. Sit around under a palm tree and have few cold ones and talk about the "good ole days". If so let me know. I'll buy a round or two.

    I shot the 2013 line...........it was awesome........without a doubt the best line yet. Really stepped it up!!!
    I just hope they make it to the point of selling and that the new owners (whoever it may be) really pump up the interest with martin and its a seamless transition.
    oh yah....keep joel!

    Martin Archery is For Sale

    I wish Gail the best. I wish all at Martin the best.

    My only complaint with Martin has been quality. I hope this is turned around by whoever buys Martin or some how remains family owned.

    Still have my 3rd Shadowcat and it's as accurate as ever and as accurate as any bow I've ever owned.

    Im not sure that anyone is going to want to buy them out whenever they have let their best staff, as well as their best shooters leave unhappy. As far as getting paid... looks like they've already made that decision and made it loud and clear what their true intentions are. As for Shawn, he'll have no problems finding someone to appreciate him for what he does best. As for Martin Archery, they are a great company with an excellent product line. Loved shooting and promoting their product, as I agreed to do. However, it also would have been nice if they had honored the contract that we agreed to. Good luck to Gail. Best wishes.

    Martin Archery was a big part of my life. I hope who ever ends up with it does well. I'd love to get my hands on that library and archery collection. That needs to be saved.

    My first bowkill came from a martin. It was my first bow and it's still hanging down in the basement. Hope Martin Archery is able to be preserved throughout this!

    To all of the ex or current pro staffers whining about their money owed.Do you really think this is the time and or place to make public your grievances? pretty classless on many levels.You may have a legitimate gripe but that has nothing to do with the 96 YEAR OLD OWNER WANTING TO RETIRE.Get a life.I wish all of the Martin owners and family the best in their future endeavors.

    Martin Archery is For Sale

    The Martin family has decided to sell its sixty-two year old archery business. Gail Martin, the company’s founder and President turns ninety next year and has decided to retire.

    Martin Archery has been a major player and innovator in the archery business for many years making multiple contributions to the growth of the industry.

    Gail Martin said “It’s time! There are so many things I have wanted to do for many years and have reluctantly decided that running the business makes it impossible to do them. Whoever buys the business will get a slate of state-of-the-art bows and will inherit a rich tradition.”

    Any interested persons are encouraged to contact Martin Archery at 509-529-2554 ext. 911 or e-mail MartinArcheryInc@gmail.com.

    A little bit sad to read this !
    Martin Archery was in the past an innovator and well named whole over the world.

    My respect to Gail, working until the age of 90, wow !!!

    +1. The history that Martin Archery has is second to none.

    Wishing Gail the best in retirement. You've earned it!

    If this is true, (offers already on the table) then why would they put a big for sale press release out?

    I wonder how long they will continue to operate if not sold. There was a post on here the other day about going bankrupt and with some Martin staffer saying not true, all is good.

    Sonja said, if Joel says it's business as usual then believe him. Notice that she didn't offer her personal opinion on that. Guess there was something to the rumor after all.

    Offers or offer could've been on the table and it fell thru..........thus the press release.

    The company has had good sales this year. My father just did not want to sell until now I think he has the right to retire at 89 years old The company will go on and everything will be available..
    I started Archery History and Archery Talk to give archers a good true source of information, to have archers ask and answer questions and solve problems, and to see many of the bows and ideas from the past. It is also a way for me to give back the sport.
    Archers Helping Archers. Most important - Enjoy shooting and have fun.
